I am almost positive that many of you have absolutely no idea what Lassi is, before Monsieur Singh I had absolutely no idea what Lassi was (AND I AM A FOODIE).
Lassi is a blend of yogurt with healing herbs & spices. It has all the goodness of yogurt plus health benefits of herbs & spices. The herbs & spices also make Lassi more flavorful than yogurt.
Now doesn’t that just sound fantastic?! I am always excited to find a product that has health benefits and more specifically digestive health benefits.
Most yogurts in the supermarket have only fruit and yogurt but no herbs or spices. That’s what makes them not so good for you. According to Ayurveda, fruit and yogurt are not compatible foods. Together fruit and yogurt are difficult to digest because they tend to sit in your stomach and play havoc with our digestion. This can also stop the flow of nutrients from other healthy foods we might be eating.
Ayurveda recommends that when blending fruit and yogurt, always consume them with digestive herbs & spices to improve digestion and get their respective nutritional benefits.
This company was generous to HAND DELIVER me some containers of their frozen lassi to try out, and I have to emphasize that it was HAND DELIVERED! An employee of the company took the bus from their Brooklyn offices in the POURING rain with a cooler all the way to my home on the other side of Brooklyn. If that is not a business that cares about their customers then I do not know what is! Besides the company itself being absolutely fantastic, the product itself is amazing and especially the passionfruit flavor. I am a big fan of tropical flavors and Monsieur Singh has mastered all of their flavors but more specifically the mango and passionfruit. These products have a creamy smooth taste with a full burst of flavor and is absolutely perfect for dessert time. While many would see frozen lassi as the perfect dessert, I on the other hand have substituted a morning yogurt for some frozen lassi and what a fantastic experience! Before you all free out about frozen yogurt for breakfast and that is unhealthy I must inform you that 16 teaspoons is only 66 calories, and when measured out it is a substantial portion. So put together the amazing flavors, low calories, and digestive health benefits and it makes for a wonderful breakfast that tastes like your cheating on a diet but instead is packing you full of nutrients that you need to get out the door for work. I can not recommend this company and these products enough and it is absolutely necessary for you to try it out for yourself. You can find Monsieur Singh at many NYC area locations (listed below) and be sure to enjoy every delectable bite of this delicious product!
