Ingredients

  • 1 cup milk (you can use almond or other milk)
  • leaves from 2 chamomile tea bags preferably organic
  • 16 blanched almonds
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • ½ tsp ground cardamom
  • ¼-⅓ tsp rosewater to taste (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp honey to taste
  • 1 lb strawberries hulled and quartered, plus 6 extra for muddling

Instructions

  • Put the milk and tea leaves in a saucepan set over a medium heat. Bring to just below simmering point, remove from the heat and chill in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
  • Pour the infused milk through a fine sieve or a cheesecloth into a blender (discard the tea leaves). Add the blanched almonds, yogurt, cardamom, rosewater if using, honey, and strawberries. Blitz until completely smooth.
  • Muddle or smash with a fork the remaining strawberries and divide between two glasses. Top up with the lassi and serve. Enjoy!

HOW TO BLANCH (SKIN) ALMONDS:
 
  1. Boil water in a small pot.
  2. Add almonds into the boiling water for about one minute.
  3. Transfer almonds to a strainer and run under cold water, until cool.
  4. Give each almond a little squeeze – the skins will slip right off! You could also place them in a paper towel and then give them a good rub between your hand palms.
