  2. I personally buy all my seeds from neuherbs, as they have the best quality, clean, and organic seeds. Also their seeds are USDA certified organic products.

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a mixer or blender, add curd, nuts, Khand, fennel seeds, cardamom, cocoa powder, Choco chips, and blend it a little.
  2. Try to blend it as little so that the ingredients don’t remain completely whole.
  3. Now, pour the lassi into a jug, or container.
  4. And, blend it with a help of a churner (rai/mathni).
  5. Serve fresh and garnish with Choco chips.

TIP:

  1. Manual churner should be preferred over blender while making lassi or similar beverages as it doesn’t blend and break the ingredients completely and therefore it helps in maintaining the good bacteria from getting neutralized.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

The digestive chocolate lassi contains curd and nuts; both are rich sources of protein.

Curd fills you with a variety of vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, potassium, and sodium.

On the other hand, nuts not only provide you variety of vitamins, but it also delivers protein, fiber, minerals, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids.
