~Strawberry Smoothie (Lassi)~

Posted by M.S. at 4:52 AM 0 comments Links to this post

I wanted something that could be prepared really fast, required no heat, and was refreshing.



Enter strawberry lassi.  Lassi is an Indian yogurt-based fruit beverage, usually prepared with mango. I absolutely love lassi; I always find myself ordering it whenever I have Indian food (which is fairly often).  I had no mangos in my kitchen Friday afternoon, and there was NO way I was braving the heat again to go buy some at the supermarket, so I settled for fresh strawberries, which I conveniently happened to have in my refrigerator.  I’m glad I settled.  Strawberry lassi may be a bit unconventional, but it’s delicious!

I want to curl up here and enjoy my leisure time with a book and cup of hot chocolate /coffee late and relax whilst the Sunshine warms me and the breeze plays through my hair.
