STRAWBERRY LASSI

STRAWBERRY LASSI

This season we got plenty of strawberries in Bangalore. Most of them seem to come from Mahabaleshwar in Maharashtra  which brought back many happy memories of our days in Pune. We used to drive up to Mahabaleshwar and no trip was complete without coming back loaded with strawberries and chikkis!

Starwberry Lassi is very easy to make and tastes great too. It is most reinvigorating as it has the goodness of yogurt and milk with the  taste of the delicious strawberries.

As you know strawberries are a good source of antioxidants so this makes for a healthy drink as well.




Ingredients:
  • Strawberries, 8-10
  • Full Cream Milk, 1/4 cup
  • Sugar, 2 tbsp or as per taste
  • Fresh Yogurt, 1 cup
Method
Wash the strawberries and keep 2-3 strawberries aside for the final decoration
Remove the leaves and chop the remaining strawberries
Blend the strawberries with sugar in a blender for half a minute
Add the full cream milk and blend it once more for half a minute
Next add the yogurt and blend for 1 more minute
Pour into tall glasses and serve chilled, decorated with cut strawberries.
