Smoothie Deconstructed

Though I don't have as elegant tableware available to me as the Top Chef Masters do, I still have a fondness for playful food.

Here is my smoothie deconstructed. It is essentially a sweet lassi and a plate of nature's finest strawberries. This is obviously a very flexible dish with a touch of the theatre -- because you pour the chilly smooth lassi over the fruit and eat it much like a soup/dessert.

Deconstructed Smoothie

1/2 c kefir or Swedish a-fil
1/2 c milk
1 - 2 T sugar (according to taste)
Sliced fruit: strawberries, blackberries, cherries, raspberries, peaches, nectarines, or mango

In the 1/2 of milk, stir the sugar in until combined, add the kefir or fil. In a bowl, lay out the fruit, place the lassi mixture next to it. If you're feeling particular hot, place the lassi mixture in the freezer to get it extra cool before serving.

Guaranteed delicious!
