My kids LOVE to make Strawberry Lassi! It’s easy to whip up anytime because it features simple ingredients like plain Greek yogurt and frozen strawberries. It’s sweet enough for the kiddos and healthy enough for me 🙂

You can easily customize this recipe to your liking, using any sweetener you want. I usually add a few packets of stevia or monk fruit to cut down on sugar, both are natural sugar-free options. Honey is another great option, but feel free to use anything you have on hand and just sweeten to taste.

Several years ago, I knew a woman who was known for her elaborate dishes. She would always say, “The eye eats first!” and this was always true for her dishes. She once turned an ordinary pasta dish into a delicate tower of perfectly placed noodles.

While a recipe should be able to shine based purely on its flavor, it sure is more fun to eat or drink when it’s presented in a beautiful way. So for fun, I often serve a Strawberry Lassi in a fun glass with a party straw, topped with a dollop of whipped cream or Greek yogurt and a fresh or frozen strawberry.

Whether you want to dress up this drink or just make the simple recipe, this Strawberry Lassi will stand out all on its own.

Yield 3 servings

Strawberry Lassi is a classic refreshing drink from India. It is yogurt based and minimally sweetened, so it makes for a healthy refresher during the hot summer months!

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup milk (the higher the fat content, the creamier your lassi will be)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • About 20 frozen strawberries
  • Sweetener to taste - We use 1 T honey or 3 packets Truvia (stevia) - see notes

Instructions

  1. Add ingredients to blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth and serve immediately.
  2. If you want a thicker lassi, add more frozen strawberries. If you want it thinner, add milk until you get the consistency you want.

Notes

You can use any sweetener you want, or leave it out all together. Honey, monk fruit, stevia, coconut sugar, or even plain old white sugar will work just fine.
