Strawberry Lassi

With summers approaching fast we are always looking at so many alternatives to quench our thirst...ranging from lemonades to ice creams to soft drinks. But Lassi happens to be one of my favourites.

When we were kids mom used to give lassi after our lunch..loaded with lots of curd, ice and sugar, and we used to polish off our glasses very soon. I had a box full of strawberries lying in my refrigerator so decided to make lassi with strawberries. Mmmm...it tasted so delicious that my DH is demanding me to make it more often.


Ingredients : (Makes 2 glasses)

Strawberries - 1 Cup ( Cut in pieces)
Curd - 1 Cup ( I used whole milk curd)
Powdered Sugar - 2 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
Water - 1 Glass
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
Ice Cubes ( Optional)

Procedure:

In blender puree together the strawberries, sugar and honey. Now add in curd, water, ice cubes, cardamom powder and blend it again nicely.

The thickness of the lassi can be adjusted by adding more or less curd/ water.

Serve chilled.

Update: Sending this to Saffronstreaks Seasonal Indulgence- Series Summer Cooler Event.
