Fruits And Berries Raita

One of my favourite raita which is refreshing in the summer heat and also a healthy option as it has yogurt which is a probiotic and berries which are high in antioxidants. I have added a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the yogurt to get a creamy texture and so a little high calorie wise.


  1. Vanilla Ice cream-1 scoop
  2. Green grapes -1/4 cup
  3. Pineapple bits-1/2 cup
  4. Curd 3/4cup
  5. Black berry-4-5(chopped)
  6. Strawberries-3 sliced
  7. Pepper-1/4 spoon
  8. Kala namak-1 pinch just for the flavour
  9. Chat masala-2 pinches.
  10. Salt as per taste.


  • Take a bowl and mix the ice cream and the yogurt
  • Add all the chopped fruits and salt and mix well and garnish with chat masala and black salt.
  • Serve it cold.
