Lassi, the most popular yoghurt based drinks from India is extremely refreshing and satisfying on hot summer days. While the traditional lassi recipe has plenty of sugar, this strawberry lassi is equally (if not more) refreshing and is refined sugar free. It is plant based, naturally sweetened with fruits, loaded with healthy fats, antioxidants and proteins. It is a great alternative to sugary store bought drinks and will make for a delicious accompaniment to your summer BBQ.
PS – You can try substituting strawberries with mixed berries or any other berries.
