  • 1 1/2  Cup  pineapple
  • 1/2  Cup  whipping cream
  • 12  Tablespoons  sugar
  • Rose syrup, optional

Directions

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and whip until all the ingredients blend thoroughly. You may also use a blender.

Add drops of rose syrup on top of the lassi in the serving  glass before serving for essence and looks.

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Pineapple Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
