I love this Strawberry Lassi because it’s not as decadent as a strawberry milkshake, but just as satisfying.  The tartness of the yogurt mixes well with the floral cardamom notes and fresh strawberries making this the perfect, healthy drink to start your mornings with.  

Feel free to double the recipe and freeze for a tasty treat!
