Have you ever tried a strawberry lassi?
Great Indian recipes are not all about curry.
I receive so many messages from people asking how I could possibly eat nothing but Indian food for a whole year! Well, I’m about eight months into my new diet and I can assure you it has been very easy. In fact, I feel much better for it. I see no reason to stop after my year is over.
Indian food is so diverse. It is easy to find new and unique things to try all the time. One of the healthiest drinks I have made is this strawberry lassi. At least one member of my family has a strawberry lassi each and every day.
What a great way to ensure the kids get their five a day!
During the Summer months we grow our own strawberries and make our own yogurt so this is a very inexpensive breakfast.
A strawberry lassi per day keeps the doctor away!
It is indeed very good for you but if you aren’t all that interested in the health benefits, you might also like to try pouring in a bit of rum. Very nice!
For best results, find the freshest fruit you can.
I don’t have a sweet tooth so I do tend to leave the optional tablespoon of honey out. I’ll leave that up to you. My eight year old daughter Jennifer swears by it.

500ml fat free plain yogurt
250ml low fat milk
Approximately 20 strawberries
1 Tablespoon honey (optional)
4 ice cubes
Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
That’s it. Easy!
If you like this recipe, be sure to try other fruit. Blueberries, mangos, bananas and peaches all go down very well.
Over the coming weeks I will be posting alternatives to this strawberry lassi which i think you’re going to like.
It may not be the most exciting Indian recipes but it is very good for you

Is there a substitute for the low fat yogurt?

Any plain yogurt will do.
