Chocolate Strawberry Lassi
It’s a regular drink in India, especially during the hot weather.
Since it is a tropical country this beverage is mostly enjoyed all year round.
Lassi is a native drink of North India and it’s a must in the mornings.
Originally Lassi is only a combination of yogurt, sugar, and water/ice.
Over the years we have derived many variations and today I present a new variety of this hydrating beverage Chocolate Strawberry Lassi.
We are generally fond of yogurt and therefore my fridge is stocked with a variety of plant-based yogurt alternatives. However, I never tried a vegan version of lassi.
Hence, this was a good chance for me to create vegan lassi and enjoy it while remembering my childhood days.
To my surprise, I was able to bring out the exact taste of lassi along with some twists.
Strawberries are at their peak so definitely, these berries were in my mind.
However, with the addition of a little cocoa powder, this lassi became kid-friendly as well.
I was so happy seeing my daughter drinking it happily and praising it all the time.
My entire family loved it and approved of this beverage.
In fact, they demanded I make it every day until it’s super warm outside.
So, I have to make a grocery trip today to stuff my refrigerator with the awesome ingredients again.
- 2 cups plain vegan yogurt (almond/coconut/soy)
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- ½ tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1 cup chopped fresh strawberries
- 1 cup crushed ice
- A knife
- A cutting board
- A spoon
- A blender
- Serving glasses
Chocolate Strawberry Lassi is a great alternative to smoothies as well.
Sometimes, we get bored of the same combination and flavors every day.
At that time this Chocolate Strawberry Lassi comes in handy to bring a change to your taste buds and yet provide you with the same nutrition and flavor.
Well, now I will insist you get to your kitchen and quickly blend this lassi and enjoy it as much as we did.
I am sure Chocolate Strawberry Lassi is going to be your next favorite beverage.
- In a blender combine all the ingredients and blend it smooth.
- Pour the lassi into the serving glasses and garnish with mint leaves and some strawberries pieces.
- Serve immediately.
