Mango Strawberry Lassi....a great chiller for a hot summer's day!

Our town annually holds a Strawberry festival in June where they celebrate...Strawberries.From Italian ices and strawberry shortcakes to fresh strawberries and even strawberry sodas,they had em all.It was a lot of fun walking around the festival while music played by local bands and singers filled the air.Our spirits were high and with that,my husband was inspired to buy himself a strawberry soda(which sadly they were out) and lots of fresh strawberries and I mean LOTS.So our refrigerator has been well stocked with them and it was time to use them before they went bad.Today was a hot day and so I thought why not make something cooling with the strawberries and not owning an ice cream maker,my options were limited.I had yogurt in the fridge,mangos in my fruit bowl and so I thought,lets blend them.Here's the recipe to a delicious fat free,sugar free Lassi that might be a great treat for the whole family.

Mango Strawberry Lassi

You'll need:

3 cups Fresh strawberries(sliced in half)
1 ripened Champaign mango (flesh scooped out)
2 cups Fat-free yogurt
3 tbsp Stevia or Agave to taste
1/2 cup Fat -free milk
Juice of 1 lemon
1 cup Ice cubes


Lassis are very easy to make.Combine all ingredients in your blender.Mix well and serve it while its still cold.You can keep it refrigerated if you're preparing it beforehand.Garnish with Strawberry slices or/and mango chunks.

Its as simple as that.A great drink for the summer and also to wow your friends and family.Not only is this a healthier recipe for a great drink but it is extremely flavorful.So try it out and let me know how it goes.

Note:For those of you who are lactose intolerant,you can substitute the yogurt and milk with soy products.

With love for food and you,
