Healthy Mango-Lassi – Make your own refreshing Lassi
Today I prepared something special for you. My Healthy Mango-Lassi. The perfect summer smoothie for a little refreshment on a hot summer day. A Lassi with Mango, Greek Yogurt, Lime, and Cinnamon.
Obviously this Lassi isn’t limited to a sweet and refreshing summer drink. I personally love to drink a nice Lassi around Christmastime and especially around new years, since it’s filled with a lot of good vitamins. Which makes me feel just a little healthier. Especially after lots of cakes and cookies around Christmas.
I thought that, since summer is coming soon and we all want to start eating a little better these days, it was just the right time for another smoothie.
But quickly it occurred to me: Actually, a Lassi goes much better with a mango than a smoothie. So this recipe turned out to become a Lassi recipe.
But I’m talking too much again, let’s get started with the recipe.
- 1 whole mango
- 150 g Greek yogurt (Low Fat)
- 100 ml water
- 1 pinch lime juice
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
- 15 g xylitol (sweetner)
- optional sweetener
- Carefully peel the mango and cut the flesh around the core in the middle.
- Squeeze the lime.
- Put all ingredients in a blender.
- Mix for about 2-3 minutes.
My Tip for the Recipe:
As one or the other connoisseur might have noticed, I use cinnamon in my lassi instead of the classic cardamom, as it is the case with the Indian Culture Drink. I just do that because I like cinnamon a lot better. Hence my tip for you: Try both and decide for yourself.
Why do I use Low-fat Greek Yogurt?
If you already know Lassi’s, you should have noticed that I use low-fat quark instead of yogurt. There are two reasons for it:
Reason 1: Greek Yogurt has much better nutritional values and makes you feel full much longer than normal milk. Which automatically makes this Lassi good for losing weight.
Reason 2: Low-fat Greek Yogurt is very cooling, which makes it the perfect ingredient for a fruity summer drink.
