I blended everything together including the ice cubes which I added last. I used half as much sugar (good call I think) and Greek strawberry yogurt. I also added fresh raspberries and a few drops of red food coloring to make it particularly pretty and pink. Not that other similar smoothies are bad but what I especially liked about this one was its simple berry flavor - no orange or cranberry juice banana or other flavor additions. Hubs slurped this down in a New York Minute! Read More

It really needs cardamom to be authentic, in my opinion. I add a pinch of ground and it's much more to my taste. Read More

Cool, refreshing, healthy midday "pick me up" drink. Not too sweet. I did use agave nectar (syrup) instead of sugar, because agave is a low glycemic natural sweetener, which won't give you a sugar rush-then-crash. There was a nice strawberry taste, as I used most of the berries in the drink, with only a little chopped on top. I also mixed all the ingredients together at the same time. I thought that 2 servings was just right for me as a single serving! Highly recommend. Read More

I really love mango lassi but wanted to make something a little less exotic for my husband so this was perfect. I felt like all the flavors were in good balance (not too yogurty just right sweetness) and would diagree with the previous review that said it was not flavorful. Of course I was lucky to have big juicy summer strawberries so maybe this could be a factor. Read More

This drink lacked good strawberry flavor. I even added a few additional strawberries. I did use 2% milk and agave in place of the honey for sweetness. After tasting decided to drink it anyway and added 1 tsp. ground flaxseed 1 tbls. soy protein powder. Read More

Awesome! As usual, because of my obsession with nutrition, I use conventional recipes as a place to start, and modify with more whole or local foods than those called for. I used raw honey instead of sugar, frozen strawberries that I had bought at the farmer's market while in season, and raw milk and my own homemade raw milk yogurt (which is more liquified than conventional yogurt). I ended up using less milk because of the viscosity of my yogurt, and no ice because the strawberries were already frozen. It was fantastic!! Read More

I LOVED this recipe. Since I am a huge yogurt fan (love the tartness of yogurt) I'd cut the sugar to 1 TBSP. But that is totally personal peference understanding many aren't crazy about tart drinks like me. Thanks for sharing Radhika. A keeper for me! Read More

I loved this smoothie but I had to make a couple of changes: I didn't use any sugar I just added 1 scoop of protein supplement strawberry flavor and that sweet enought to my taste I used frozen strawberries and fat free soy milk instead of whole milk. So delicious and refreshing I definitely will make this again. Read More
