I find that most of my metabolic balance clients are looking for a quick and easy breakfast that they can make on the go. They may be used to having shakes or smoothies for breakfast with added protein powder, but metabolic balance forbids protein powder because it is processed and is not a whole food. The spices and vanilla extract in this recipe naturally add sweetness to this lassi without the need to sweeten with juice or sugar. The added ice cubes give this lassi a smooth, liquid texture.
