I’m a sucker for frozen desserts, so when I discovered Monsieur Singh, the Brooklyn-based brand behind frozen lassi, I knew I had to conduct a taste test. What’s lassi? It’s a blend of yogurt, herbs, and spices, and a popular food in India, conceived by Ayurveda, a 5,000 year old wellness system. For centuries, lassi has been popular in India for improving digestive well-being, boosting the immune system and energizing both mind & body.
Monsieur Singh makes three lassi flavors: Mango, Honey Lemon & Pineapple Banana. I loved the rich and creamy texture of the Mango, the simplicity of the Honey Lemon, and the sweet and refreshing Pineapple Banana (which might be my favorite). I also like that you can buy lassi in two sizes: the traditional pint for when you really need a lassi fix, or a smaller push-pop for when you need a little taste. I found that in comparison to frozen yogurt, the flavor is much more intense (thanks to those herbs and spices) which made it much easier to savor.
You can find Monsieur Singh in markets like Foragers and Whole Foods, on Good Eggs, and even at Smorgasburg. See the full list here.
