Foodland Ontario has some delicious ideas.

Celebrate in style with Strawberry Honey Lassi. Making scrumptious use of Ontario’s sugar-sweet strawberries and honey, this silky smooth drink is low-fat and perfect after a spicy meal.

 

Lassi

A creamy refreshing, cleansing drink that is a version of the Indian yogurt and fruit drink, called Lassi. It can be a nice finish to a spicy hot meal or an interesting drink idea if serving a slightly spicy meal. A Lassi is of great importance in the Indian diet, because it contains fat, protein, lactose, calcium and phosphorus. It has been said in Indian literature that regular consumption of Lassi drinks reduces the chances of your hair going white before it is time.
