It’s time for the second low-carb lassi variation. This mint lassi is mild and refreshing. Just like the basic lassi version, this one can also be served with spicy food or just as general pick-me-up on a hot summer day.
Tips for making this low-carb lassi
You can read more general lassi tips from my previous blog post.
The mint flavor is not extremely prominent in this drink. The herb is meant to work as an accompanist rather than as a solo player.
Personally, I love to add a few drops stevia to give a hint of sweetness, though you can leave out the sweetener completely if you like. You can even replace the stevia with 1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt for more mineral-rich drink.
If you fancy more pepperminty flavor, you can replace the fresh mint with one drop peppermint oil. Use pure, food-grade peppermint oil (I use LorAnn peppermint oil), and no more than one drop. That gives enough brisk, authentic peppermint flavor.
