Strawberry Smoothie/Lassi and an award

Ever since I tried making Lassi or Smoothie using strawberries, mangoes or any other fruits at home, I am hooked to them :D. I never thought they were so easy to make yet healthy too. We have many different varieties out there out of which I consider this one a very simple and easy one for starters like me who want to learn how to make them.

Serves 2
Preparation Time 5 mins or less

Ingredients :

Strawberries - 1 cup or 7-8 frozen thawed or fresh ones ( I prefer fresh and use for this one too)
Milk - very little 1/4 cup
Yougurt - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 4-5 tbsp or more if you prefer
Crushed Ice  as you prefer

  1. Place the strawberries with sugar in a blender and mix it well.
  2. Add yogurt, milk, crushed ice and blend once again.
  3. Strawberry lassi or smoothie is ready. Phew isn't that a very big recipe :D. There is hardly any ;).
