Strawberry Lassi
 

Strawberries are on sale & ridiculously cheap right now, so I have bought a few pounds & am having fun with new recipes. This one is very simple & pure. I have only had lassi once at this Indian restaurant we would go to when the hubby & I were in college (everything good happened in college!)  It’s a good drink; I don’t know why I never ordered it again. I am usually a water gal; saving my calories for my food. Anyway, I really can’t get enough sweet drinks right now, so I made this. We had it kind of as a breakfast smoothie with peanut butter toast on the side, but lassi is typically a hot weather refreshment used as a beverage for lunch.

Strawberry Lassi

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries, hulled & halved (half or quarter them if you have a small blender)
  • 2-4 Tbsp honey (I used 2 Tbsp, but you can taste test & if it's tart, add more, but the vanilla yogurt should sweeten it up quite a bit.)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1 cup ice, crushed (Use crushed if you have a small blender.)

Instructions

  1. Blend the strawberries with the honey & salt in a blender.
  2. Add greek yogurt & blend
  3. Repeat with ice & blend again. Serve immediately.
