A lassi is a yogurt based drink from India, and it can be either savory or sweet flavored. I've only ever really seen two or so flavors of lassi when I eat at Indian restaurants, the most common being the most well-known mango lassi, though I've also tried a rose water lassi which had a much subtler taste. Since my first lassi, I've loved the way they tasted! I've even tried my hand at making my own mango lassi during the last mango season, but that can come another day. The traditional version of a lassi, however, is apparently more savory and is made with roasted cumin and spices as opposed to the more well-known sweet and fruity types.
I don't know where an avocado lassi falls on the savory vs. sweet scale, but I do know that it tastes good! So go ahead and make some for yourself!
