Learn how to make thick and creamy Strawberry Lassi with today’s recipe! With real homemade vegan yogurt, plant-based milk, maple syrup and a hint of cardamom, there is no other authentic summer recipe that you can prepare at a moment’s notice.
Lassi can be enjoyed as a beverage just by itself or at the end of a sumptuous meal. The most common Lassi recipe in Indian cuisine is either Sweet Lassi or Mango Lassi. The recipe I am sharing is a vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free variation with Strawberries.
Spring and Summer are great seasons to enjoy fruits and the time to enjoy strawberries is soon narrowing down by the end of June. With a full serving of vitamin C, strawberries complement the probiotic content in the vegan yogurt to make this Lassi a nutritious one.
What is lassi?
If you are not familiar with the name, Lassi is a popular yogurt-based drink in Indian cuisine. The most basic form of lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, salt, and some aromatic spices. You could add any fruits to that then its called by its names like mango lassi, or strawberry lassi, etc.
How to make strawberry lassi
The directions cannot be any simpler than this. Blend all the ingredients together in a blender or hand mixer until you get a creamy and smooth texture just like a smoothie. If you prefer a thinner consistency, you can add a little water or plant-based milk.
Serve them chilled or add ice cubes for cold lassi. One variation within this recipe that you could try is to add rose syrup instead of cardamom. Needless to say, my kids loved the Lassi and the rose syrup variation.
