South African Amasi drink Recipe

Amasi is fermented milk in a calabash and originates from South Africa and it is known by the names maas in Afrikaans, Magege in Tsonga, and mafi in Sesotho.

It has a thick and creamy texture, while the flavor is tart and milky, with some describing it as a mix between yogurt and cottage cheese.

Besides probiotic bacteria, amasi is also a great source of protein, calcium, iron, and magnesium. It can be drunk on its own, or combined with honey and fruit for extra sweetness.
