Strawberry Mint Lassi
A lassi is a chilled yogurt drink common in India. Served to help temper the heat in spicy curries, it was originally a savory, even salty beverage. However, in recent years, the sweet variety has become increasingly popular, and it is common to find mango lassis served at Indian Restaurants. Since strawberries are abundant at the farmers' markets right now, and my garden is over flowing with mint, I decided to try them together. This unique beverage is perfect for sipping on a hot afternoon, or served as a light dessert. Feel free to experiment and use other seasonal fruits such as raspberries, bananas, or peaches.
- Layer yogurt, strawberries, mint, sugar, milk and ice in a blender. Cover and pulse until smooth. If necessary, remove lid and use a spatula to scrape down the sides and immerse the berries (while blender is off).
- Pour into glasses and serve immediately, garnished with additional strawberries if desired.
