Pumpkin Cinnamon Lassi

Oh glorious autumn....the cool crisp weather, the falling leaves and the delicious flavors of the season! I am not a fan of winter at all but fall.....I love, love fall. I wish after Fall we can skip winter and proceed to spring so that after the bright reds, yellows and oranges of autumn we will immediately be treated to the delightful sight of vibrant green. 



Alas that is not possible - so why not just enjoy the short fall season with some delicious treat? That's what I intend to do beginning with our first fall recipe this season. When I received these Chobani Pumpkin Spice Greek Yogurt, I was really excited! I immediately opened one tub and had it for my snack. I really loved it! It had the subtle hint of all my favorite fall flavors and spices!


This inspired me to make a fall drink based on the classic Indian beverage - Lassi. I love Mango Lassi and we never fail to order it when we go to any Indian restaurant. A Lassi is a yogurt-based drink blended with fruit, water or dairy and spices. Since I already have the pumpkin-flavored yogurt from Chobani I thought it would be perfect to make a fall-inspired Lassi. To retain some Indian flavor in the drink I added some ground cardamom. If you cannot find cardamom or are unfamiliar with it, feel free to sub it with your other favorite fall spices like ginger, nutmeg and cloves. Please enjoy!
