This Strawberry and Rose Lassi (smoothie), is a Sweet, Aromatic and Refreshing Yoghurt drink for anytime of the day.
Hey Hey lovelies!!! So I have been taking a little break from my blogging world, trying to re-align my thoughts and emotions after the loss of my dear Father, late last year. Now I am able to gently and ‘BERRY’ (very) SLOWLY step back into my blogosphere world, and I do hope my new posts, will bring you my readers much joy and inspiration, like I know my older posts have for you. (which reminds me, I need to do a recap post for you all showcasing FOODEVA MARSAY’S best performing posts for 2019…. KEEP A LOOKOUT FOR THAT ONE!)
As with every New Year, many of us tend to lean towards cleaner and lighter meal options, in the hope to rectify any damages we may have caused our bodies during the previous holiday season. Being Summer here in the Southern Hemisphere, and with a good few heat waves that we battle through our summers in South Africa, Refreshing and energising meal substitutes are a welcome relief.
Smoothies are such versatile drinks, and most often we can add in just about anything we find in our fridges. This Strawberry and Rose Lassi, is sweet enough to boost your energy levels, whilst also delivering the awesome benefits derived from the yoghurt and fresh strawberries. I enjoy this Strawberry And Rose Lassi, anytime of the day. It makes for a welcome refreshing drink even as a snack option during the latter part of the day. The Rose Petals, Rose Water/Essence and Cardamom, impart a subtle flavouring that helps calm and relax your senses with each sip.
So whether you need to empty out your fridge, or just need a good old fashion ‘lift me up’ drink, This strawberry and rose lassi, is pink happiness in a glass. Do give this a try soon, and I look forward to all your feedback on my various social media platforms.
Allow me to Raise my ‘Pink Speckled Glass of Happiness’, as I wish YOU, my dear readers, a BLESSED AND PROSPEROUS 2020. May your year ahead be filled with much love and happiness, AMEEN!
HAPPY LASSI/SMOOTHIE MAKING LOVELIES
