Pro tips & tricks by Anishya

  1. If you are using well ripe papaya, you can avoid adding any sweetener to make it a less calorie drink.
  2. You can add honey as sweetener, but Ayurveda doesn’t recommend yogurt and honey combination. So don’t use yogurt and honey combination regularly in your diet.
  3. Add water according to the consistency you want. This papaya lassi can be served to 2 people.
