Question

What is the difference between "Lassi" and a "Smoothie"?

They are both drinks btw..

Answers

In lassi, the yogurt is the "hero" of the drink.

In smoothies, the fruit is the "hero" of the drink.

Hero being the star, or main focus, of the dish/drink.

It's all about the ratio.

Lassi doesn't require fruit, but one may incorporate it if one chooses. But it's mainly a yogurt drink.

Smoothies don't have to include yogurt, but one may incorporate it if one chooses. But it's mainly a fruit drink.

Lassi (pronounced "lussy") is made from yogurt. It may also contain fruit, often mango, but it doesn't need to. At any rate the main ingredient is always yogurt. A smoothie contains mostly fruit, although it could also contain yogurt, but most don't.
