Lassi, the Indian yogurt drink that's meant to soothe your soul after the beating of a hot curry, traditionally comes plain or blended with mango pulp. Both are delicious, but it's strawberry season here and it's already sweltering: a lassi beckoned. So, I swapped a few fresh strawberries for the mango, tossed in a handful of mint leaves and a little raw sugar (a lassi should suggest sweetness, but shouldn't be sweet).

Ingredients

14 ounces Fage Greek yogurt (full-fat)
16 mint leaves
8 ripe strawberries
3 1/2 tablespoons raw sugar
1/4 cup water

Directions

Step 1
Layer all the ingredients in a blender, then turn it on. Stop to scrape down the yogurt or any other errant ingredients. Once it's smooth, pour into glasses and sip until content.
