Strawberry Mint Lassi

June 14, 2010

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
