Healthy, Easy, Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi Recipe

I was inspired by dining out at some local Indian restaurants recently to try making my own Mango Lassi. The restaurant version I treat as more of a dessert but I came up with a simplified recipe to make at home without added sugars but without lacking taste.  For an incredibly easy, healthy, and delicious take on this traditional Indian yogurt smoothie I like to stick to three ingredients:

1) Non-fat plain yogurt (my favorites are FAGE 0% or Trader Joe’s European Style Organic Plain Nonfat)
2) Mango– fresh or frozen
3) Very ripe banana (optional but this is a great way to add natural sweetness and an extra smooth texture)

Methods

Place about 3/4 cup yogurt and whole banana first in the blender then place about 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks or 3/4 cup fresh mango. Blend until smooth.

It’s that simple. Really.

 

Nutrition highlights
This recipe is is fat-free (if you stick to fat-free yogurt), a good source of potassium and protein and rich in calcium and vitamin A.
