Its all Valli’s fault…there she posted a status on fb asking what everyone’s favourite lassi (yogurt drink) was….and i replied with an choice between Rooh Afza and strawberries… i just couldnt concentrate on my work after that cos i kept thinking of the boxes of frozen strawberries i had in the freezer…. around 3 p.m, unable to take it anymore and taking solace in the fact that i needed this somehow to think clearly on a hot summer afternoon, i was slurping on a glass of thick delicious strawberry lassi to die for…. make it and see how addicted you can get….
Valli’s having a summer fest with cold treats for the season…sending off this lassi there~
Strawberry Lassi (serves 2)
1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled, washed and chopped roughly
1 cup ice cubes
1 cup plain yogurt ( i used home made 3% fat, but anything will do)
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2-3 tablespoons sugar (optional, i didnt use it, depending on how tart the strawberries are)
take all of the ingredients in a blender jar and whizz for 1 minute in short bursts till everything is well blended and you get a thick frothy lassi. check for sugar and adjust bu adding if needed. if too thick, add 1/4 cup of cold water. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
