The favorite 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 it.
I have been a Lassi fan since my childhood! Whenever we used to visit my grandmother’s place in Summer vacation, she always had a big jug of Lassi ready in the fridge.
She used to offer us the lassi after our evening playtime when we used to run towards her in hunger.
Till now, a glass of classic Lassi reminds me of those good old days!
Whereas the classic Lassi remains an all-time favorite for me, sometimes I also like to flavor it with seasonal fruits to add a variety to our Summer drinks.
While I always make Mango Lassi and Classic Punjabi Lassi at home, this time I thought to give it a different flavor with strawberries, and it came out so delicious that I made it thrice in the same week.
If you know me, I am a big fan of fruits and when it is combined with yogurt, it becomes even better for me. It’s just like a cherry on the top!
Also, it’s a great way to make something different from strawberries, that will hydrate you as well as give you some relief from the scorching heat outside.

About the recipe
Lassi is an Indian drink made of yogurt.
It can be sweet lassi, salty lassi, flavored with fruits to make fruit lassi or even plain lassi.
I like to add some holy basil leaves in my sweet lassi to give it a very nice flavor.
You can even make coffee, blackcurrant or mixed fruit lassi.
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.
Made using fresh curd and strawberry slices or blend of strawberries, this 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.
I have added honey to make this Lassi, but you can also substitute it with sugar.
This amazing lassi can be had first thing in the morning for breakfast, to kickstart your day or in the evening when hunger strikes. Kids especially love it.
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.
Can we use frozen strawberries to make this Lassi?
I would recommend you add fresh strawberries, but if they are not available or out of season you can add in frozen strawberries too.
Strawberry Lassi is low on calories as well. One tall serving of strawberry lassi has 250 Kcal.
