Digestive Lassi with Fresh Cilantro

Ayurveda recommends lassi as the ideal lunchtime beverage to enhance digestion. Make it twice as effective with digestion-boosting spices and fresh cilantro leaves.


  • 3 parts pure room-temperature or cool (not cold) water
  • 1 part fresh homemade yogurt
  • Pinch of rock salt
  • Pinch of cumin (dry-roast cumin seeds and fresh-grind for the best aroma and flavor)
  • Pinch of black pepper if balancing Kapha
  • ½ tsp. finely-chopped cilantro leaves


  1. Blend all ingredients well in a blender. Serve at room temperature for best results, or slightly chilled.
