Strawberry Lassi – The original ‘Smoothie’ flavored with strawberry

  Long before there were Smoothies, there was Lassi. The Yoghurt Drink that originated in Punjab. Sweet Lassi can be plain or flavored with various fruits, sometimes even spiced.

It was a hot day and I had a load of chores around the house.  Exhausted, I remembered how my mom would make me plain sweet Lassi, when it got hot. Milk, Yoghurt and Sugar are all that’s needed. I opened up my fridge to get the Yoghurt and was reminded of the ‘punnet of strawberries’  that was left over from making a fruit filled cake.  I decided to make a Strawberry Lassi. What fun? And the girls would be home soon, they would like that wouldn’t they?

Fruit Lassi can be made similarly with Mango, Pineapple, Green Apple etc… but I must say the Strawberry is a real picker upper! The girls loved it as well!

Try it and let us know – Strawberry Lassi – The original ‘Smoothie’ flavored with strawberry.

  •  Instead of fresh yoghurt, you could also use plain sweetened yoghurt. In this case omit the sugar.
  • Some like honey in place of sugar for their Lassi. I prefer sugar.
  • Lassi must be served immediately as it looses its super creamy  froth after sitting.
  • Milk and yoghurt must be chilled to begin with. Lassi just aint so great if it’s not cold.
  • If you want your Lassi, pinker add more strawberries and adjust the sugar accordingly. I find however, that 5- 6 strawberries is sufficient for great tasting Lassi.
