This Indian drink is normally made with cow’s milk yogurt. We use soya yogurt, which creates a very similar texture. Perfectly ripe fruit will give you a luscious sweet, smooth finish. The drink is rich in vitamin C due to the strawberries; studies have suggested these berries may also hold properties that help to reduce inflammation within the body. Serve the lassi chilled – perfect on a summer’s day.
1 ripe mango, peeled and stone removed
100g ripe strawberries, hulled and cut in half
2 tbsp plain soya yogurt
Juice of ½ lime
250ml rice milk
2 ice cubes
- Place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth.
- Serve immediately, over ice. (If you don’t have any ice cubes, put the lassi in the fridge to chill a bit before serving.)
