Enter strawberry lassi. Lassi is an Indian yogurt-based fruit beverage, usually prepared with mango. I absolutely love lassi; I always find myself ordering it whenever I have Indian food (which is fairly often). I had no mangos in my kitchen Friday afternoon, and there was NO way I was braving the heat again to go buy some at the supermarket, so I settled for fresh strawberries, which I conveniently happened to have in my refrigerator. I’m glad I settled. Strawberry lassi may be a bit unconventional, but it’s delicious!
