Health Benefits Of The Vegan Salty Lassi

It’s hard to believe that a salty lassi could actually be good for your health. But fortunately for us it is true. We’re also happy to report that there are quite a few health benefits associated with the vegan salty lassi. So let’s get into them below.


The vegan salty lassi can hydrate a person simply because it’s a liquid. It can also help to maintain a proper fluid balance in the body.


Most vegan lassis contain probiotic-rich plant-based yogurt. The probiotics in the vegan yogurt can support gut health and digestion.

Nutrient Rich

The drink can also be a good source of vitamins, minerals, and protein. It’s all dependant on the ingredients used.

Low In Saturated Fats

It might be difficult to believe, but the truth is that the vegan salty lassi typically contains no saturated fat. This means that it is a much healthier option for your heart. Other drink options such as milkshakes made with animal milk are actually high in saturated fats.

Lactose Free

Being dairy-free, means that this vegan mocktail is suitable for lactose-intolerant individuals.

Weight Management

This one may actually come as quite a shock. The protein and fibre in a plant-based lassi can give you the feeling of fullness. So it makes your body think that you are full and prevents you from eating excessively. It seems like a great option for those who are trying to lose weight.

Cholesterol Reduction

When you compare it to the traditional salty lassi made with dairy, the vegan version has noticeably lower levels of cholesterol.

Things To Keep In Mind

It’s important to remember that the health benefits may vary depending on the ingredients and preparation methods used. So keep in mind it’s essential to choose nutrient-dense ingredients and avoid excessive added sugars or salt.

Vegan Salty Lassi Recipe

Here’s a recipe for the Vegan Salty Lassi, a savoury and refreshing Indian yogurt-based drink with a dairy-free twist. If you enjoy Indian food, we also have a bunch of vegan mithai recipes (Indian sweets) that we definitely think you need to try. Especially if you have a sweet tooth. We also mentioned the Indian sweets recipes because it compliments the vegan salty lassi. The sweetness is washed down by the savoury lassi flavour. A perfect combination that you really have to experience for yourself.

Vegan Salty Lassi


  • 1 cup of dairy-free yogurt (such as almond, coconut, or soy yogurt)
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground black salt (kala namak) for an authentic flavour (always remember to adjust to your taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground cumin (just to garnish)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnishing (optional)
  • Ice cubes (optional)


  1. In a blender, combine the dairy-free yogurt, cold water, cumin powder, and ground black salt (kala namak).
  2. Blend the ingredients until they are well combined and the lassi becomes smooth and frothy.
  3. Taste the drink and adjust the seasoning, adding more black salt if needed for that characteristic salty and slightly tangy flavour.
  4. If you prefer a colder lassi, you can add a few ice cubes to the blender and blend again until the ice is crushed and well incorporated.
  5. Pour the Vegan Salty Lassi into serving glasses.
  6. Garnish each glass with a pinch of ground cumin and fresh cilantro leaves if desired.
  7. Serve your Vegan Salty Lassi immediately as a refreshing and savory beverage, perfect for cooling off during warm days or as a complement to spicy Indian meals.

Enjoy your Vegan Salty Lassi as a dairy-free alternative to the classic Indian drink. It’s a flavourful and cooling option that’s great for any time of the day!

Pro Tips For Making A Vegan Salty Lassi

1. The Caavakushi Team has noticed that the vegan salty lassi works particularly well with certain meals. Surprisingly, its unique taste pairs well with an evening meal. Who knows, it might become your preferred drink of choice at the dinner table.

2. Don’t add too much ice or any at all if you prefer a tangy taste to your beverage. The ice will water it down and that tangy taste will disappear.

3. On the other hand, if you like just a slight hint of flavour in your drink. We suggest adding more ice. The ice will dilute the lassi and your drink won’t be as strong and tangy.

At the end of the day it’s all about personal preference. Some of us like a more potent concoction than others. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to recipes. Tweaking the recipe to your taste buds is what takes a good recipe and turns into a great recipe. So definitely don’t be afraid to make adjustments when necessary to suit your palette.
