Lassi Yogurt Cold Drink from Swoosh @ Trinoma Mall

 Yogurt Lassi Swoosh 
Pandan Swoosh & Yogurt Lassi Swoosh
Price List / Cup Size / Flavors
Last week of March, Swoosh opened their first branch in Trinoma. The same company that brought us the Icebreaker Scramble. What I love about Swoosh is their Yogurt Lassi, for a tall glass you can share it with your companion, believe me! =) Plus of course the health benefits of yogurts, this time they blended it with a Lassi. 
What is a Lassi?
As Wikipedia quoted: 

Lassi is a popular and traditional Punjabi yogurt-based drink of India and Pakistan. It is made by blending yogurt with water or milk and Indian spices. Traditional lassi (also known as salted lassi, or, simply lassi) is a savory drink sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin while sweet lassi on the other hand is blended with sugar or fruits instead of spices.
In Dharmic religions, yogurt sweetened with honey is used while performing religious rituals. Less common is lassi served with milk and is topped with a thin layer of clotted cream. Lassis are enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment, mostly taken with lunch. With a little turmeric powder mixed in, it is also used as a folk remedy for gastroenteritis.

Swoosh bestsellers are mostly chocolate base like: Double Dutch, Chocolate Mousse & Black Forest, Bubble Gum, Pandan, Ube and their Lassi.
We tried the Lassi Yogurt and Pandan Swoosh without the whipped cream. I'm not fond of the creams, for one I'm avoiding too much calorie intake, woot! and I don't like it too creamy. Both flavors taste refreshingly good for a snack. We matched it with some cheeseburgers from Slammer Burgers, the kiosk beside Swoosh. 
We'll definitely back.
