Strawberry Mint Lassi

Lassi, the Indian yogurt drink that's meant to soothe your soul after the beating of a hot curry, traditionally comes plain (sometimes salted) or blended with mango pulp. Both are delicious, but it's strawberry season here and it's already sweltering: a lassi beckoned. So, this morning, I swapped a few fresh strawberries for the mango, tossed in a handful of mint leaves and a little raw sugar (a lassi should suggest sweetness, but shouldn't be sweet). The blender whirred away until the sugar dissolved and the yogurt became stained pink, then my daughter and I sat on the kitchen floor and drank the whole batch. Be prepared to do the same.


Strawberry Mint Lassi

Serves 2

  • 14 ounces Fage Greek yogurt (full-fat)
  • 16 mint leaves
  • 8 ripe strawberries
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons raw sugar
  • 1/4 cup water

Layer all the ingredients in a blender, then turn it on. Stop to scrape down the yogurt or any other errant ingredients. Once it's smooth, pour into glasses and sip until content.
