Craze for Lassi?

I have been craze for lassi and other soft drinks from my childhood. In our local culture and tradition, there is a particular day in the year, in which lassi('Panaa' that is called locally) is prepared, offered to God and taken as prasaad by all in the family. This day is 'Panaa-Sankranti' the first day of Hindu calender and comes on April 14th every year. This is in tradition to welcome hot summer with cold and soft drinks for all. I hope, you must be enjoying lassi this summer. Is not it?

I love lassi and always have, unfortunately due to having diabetes I have given up drinking the sweet form of it regularly and have it once in a while, say once a month or so. My husband loves the salty version and calls it buttermilk and I also enjoy this. He has at least a pint of it every day and I tend not to drink it as much as him but at least every other day I have some. It is good for the health too as far as I know as it helps cool your insides :) Ooh I feel like going and making one right now but I must not be naughty!
