While in Texas we are still having a nice sunless weather, am sure back in India people have started feeling the onset of summer. And, summer coolers are just the right thing to have after a daylong work outside.

A first look into Google this morning it showed a colourful doodle by Marimekko. Yes, it is the start of spring, and with spring the markets are getting flooded with berries – strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries – you name them and it’s there neatly arranged in the shelves for you to grab.

I love all sorts of berries, but of course strawberries are my favourite. So, as am busy setting up my new home in Austin, I started experimenting in the kitchen too. Lassi is my favourite summer drink and to mix it up with some strawberries – the combination can just never go wrong.

As the spring breaks are on, you can also ask your children to help you out with this preparation. Am sure they’ll enjoy making and having these tumble full of strawberry lassi.

Hot Tips – You can prepare the lassi without the strawberry or any other fruits of choice. If you don’t want it to be too thick then pour in 3 cups of plain yogurt with 1 cup of cold water.

This strawberry yogurt drink goes to Cooking Concepts # 9 – Spring Seasonal Food, Ramya’s ABC Series: FRUIT FIESTA and also to Beat the Heat event.

    A hint of crushed cardamom and a few drops of rose essence gives this lassi a new twist. Just tried it this morning.

    […] Fruits are also a great option to keep cool. Whether you like it in bite size pieces or pureed to a smooth juice, eat loads of fruits everyday.
