Summer and Instant drinks are directly proportional to each other in India. In Indian summers, the demand for instant drinks such as cold drinks, instant Lassi and squashes increases. Among these three categories, Lassis are the most preferred ones as they are generally made up of milk and provide nutritive value along with their refreshing taste. Although Lassis made directly from curd is the most preferred one but packaged lassi drinks such as the Amul Lassi, Britannia Lassi and the Mother Dairy Lassi also possess certain nutritive values.
So today in this article we will be comparing Amul Lassi vs Mother Dairy Lassi and will be determining which one is better in aspects of nutritive value and other features. Let’s begin.
