Author Notes: Lassi, the Indian yogurt drink that's meant to soothe your soul after the beating of a hot curry, traditionally comes plain or blended with mango pulp. Both are delicious, but it's strawberry season here and it's already sweltering: a lassi beckoned. So, 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).Amanda Hesser

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
  1. 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.

we in India normally make the yogart at home and lassi is very common drink during summer months.
since fresh strawberries is not available every where I replace the same with fruit of the month like mango, bananna etc. but I like the idea of using mint as well it gives much zest to the drink. thanku

I've made this 5 or 6 times now and just love it. It's just the right balance in flavors!
