💡Pro-Tip On How To Peel Up Pineapple
You can start by slicing down the top and bottom of the pineapple. Gently peel off the skin using a knife and remove the eyes of the pineapple by scooping them using a smaller knife. Then cut it into two vertical halves. Remove the light-colored core you see on both halves by cutting V-shaped grooves, slice it into chunks and you are all set! You can also use canned pineapple crush of equivalent quantity.
Most of us prefer opting for packaged drinks in summer to save time and for a better taste, however we must give our dearest lassi a chance!

What can be the alternatives for pineapple fruit?
You can use pineapple juice, canned pineapple crush, frozen pineapple and pineapple flavored candies.
Can we use other fruits here?
Yes, of course! You can add your own creation. I would suggest trying mango and guava fruits to begin with.
Can sugar be eliminated from this recipe?
Yes, for diabetics, you must completely avoid sugar. I would highly recommend consulting the doctor before trying this recipe anyway.
Is it good for kids?
Yes, it can become your kids’ favorite drink, believe me!
Can we avoid mint from this recipe?
Yes, sure. If you are fond of basil leaves, you can add that instead.
Does the pineapple need to be ripe for this?
Yes, ripe pineapple would make the lassi taste best, however if the pineapple you have is unripe, you can adjust the quantity of sugar/honey to balance the taste.
