Hailing from India, Lassi is one of the drinks that cools you off in the hot weather. Lassis have also come of age. Many flavors, many colors. I am so used to having Lassi as a breakfast drink that I wanted to try out something innovative and quick. This ‘QuickBerry Lassi’ is a perfect drink to quench your thirst or satiate those in-between-meal-cravings.
1/2 cup Plain Yoghurt
2 tsp Strawberry crush or preserves
1 tsp Sugar
Water (Per the desired consistency)
Put all the above ingredients in a blender and blend it till a homogeneous mix is obtained. Serve chilled.
1. To watch those calories, you can always substitute Full Fat Yoghurt with Low Fat Yoghurt and regular sugar with sugar substitute.
2. If you don’t have Strawberry crush, use Strawberry jam or jelly. You can also experiment with other flavors like apricot, raspberry, black currant.
3. Although you can make this recipe with fresh strawberries, it is for times when you’re out of strawberries at home (and don’t want to run down to your local grocery store) or if they are not available in your area.
