“Lassi” are yoghurt-based smoothies typical of Indian cuisine, where the mango is consumed daily. They are healthy, very good and, if you have a powerful robot like the Chefbot, they are prepared in a few minutes. You can make it even easier, cheaper and at any time of the year if you use frozen instead of fresh berries. Choose the type of yogurt according to the texture you want to achieve. If you prefer a more liquefied “lassi”, use a very light one. If you want it to be stronger, use Greek. To make the result thinner and remove the seeds and cardamom remains, we recommend passing it through a fine mesh strainer (that’s why we let the red fruits defrost and then add ice).
- 250 g of defrosted red fruits (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries or raspberries, mixed and the liquid they have released)
- 1 natural yoghurt (can be unsweetened vegetable drink (125 g))
- 200 ml milk (can be unsweetened vegetable drink)
- A cardamom pod (crushed)
- Sugar to taste (if desired, agave syrup or honey)
- 6 ice cubes
- A little bit of grated lime (optional)
Step by step preparation
- Place the blade accessory in the Chefbot’s glass. Add the 250 g of defrosted red fruits, the 200 ml of milk and the cardamom pod. Set for 2 minutes at speed 10 and close.
- Open the lid of the Chefbot and use a fine-meshed strainer to strain the contents of the glass into another container. Then use a spoon to squeeze out all the juice from the remaining seeds.
- Rinse the glass from the Chefbot and return the shake to its interior. Taste it and decide if you want to sweeten it and, if so, add the chosen sweetener to taste. Add the 6 ice cubes and the 125 g of yoghurt and set 1 minute at speed 10. Serve immediately with a little grated lime on top if desired.
