The favourite drink of North India during summers and even otherwise, Strawberry Lassi is a fruity, fresh and sweet variation of so-famous Lassi. If you are a lassi and a strawberry fan then you would gulp glasses of this beverage on repeats for sure. Here is how to make Strawberry Lassi Recipe.
What is Lassi?
Lassi is an Indian drink made of yogurt. It can be sweet lassi, salty lassi, flavoured with fruits to make fruity lassi or even plain lassi. I like to add some holy basil leaves in my sweet lassi to give it a very nice flavour.
Often times prepared during summers, Lassi helps cool the body considerably. And whenever I find fresh fruits like strawberry or mango, then I do not stop myself from making Mango Lassi or Strawberry Lassi Recipe.
Some people even like to add a dash of rose water to give a better flavor to their favourite lassi but I have kept this recipe basic this time.
Made using fresh curd and strawberry slices or blend of strawberries, this Strawberry Lassi is thicker than buttermilk or yogurt and the blend brings out its wonderful flavor and taste.
Although lassi can be enjoyed just as is, strawberry adds its own unique flavor. Strawberry Oats Coconut Lassi is another way of preparing this.
This amazing lassi can be had first thing in the morning, to kickstart your day or in the evening when hunger strikes. Kids especially love it.
Lassi was originally prepared at home using homemade yoghurt or curd, and must be tried once at least with this method. If strawberry doesn’t catch your fancy, a Rose Lassi, Tulsi and Honey Lassi or Kesar Elaichi Lassi is just as quick and delicious to prepare.
However, Strawberry Lassi does deserve your whisk this summer, so make it, slurp it and enjoy it chilled with your loved ones using my recipe.
Tips to make best Lassi at home
Use fresh homemade curd to make the lassi. It tastes best with the yogurt that is not sour.
The lassi is supposed to be thick and creamy. Use full fat yogurt to make it for best result. However, if you want to make a healthier version, you can definitely use low fat yogurt.
You can use vegan milk and curd to make a vegan version of this lassi.
The curd must be whisked until it is creamy. You can either use a hand whisk or a mixer to make it.
You can add fruits of your choice to this lassi and make your own version.
The plain lassi tastes amazing topped with a dollop of fresh malai (Cream collected over boiled milk). Try it if you like the malai.
