Healthy Mango Lassi Recipe

Healthy Mango Lassi Recipe

I’ve been on a health kick lately.  I feel that most Indian recipes can be made healthier, and that is one of my goals with this blog – to post traditional recipes with a healthy spin wherever I can.

Mangos are one of my favourite fruits.  And since they are now in season, I thought it would be the perfect time to post this recipe for mango lassi.

I added a bit of a twist to this recipe by incorporating chia seed into the mixture.  It adds a great texture and chia seeds are incredibly healthy for you!  They are loaded with antioxidants and also contain protein, omega-3’s, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.  To top that off, they are full of fibre – almost all of the carbs in chia seeds is fibre.  The photo below is of ground chia seed.  You can buy it from the health food section of pretty much any grocery store these days.  My favourite brand, and the brand I used in this recipe is Salba Ground Chia Seeds.  You can read up on their amazing product at salbasmart.com.

If you are wondering what chia seeds taste like, the best comparison would be similar to poppy seeds.  They really don’t have much of a taste at all and do not affect the mango flavour of the lassi one bit!  So you can increase the health benefit drastically without changing the flavour of the drink. Of course you don’t have to add the chia seed, but honestly why wouldn’t you?

And of course mangos themselves are full of health benefits.  Mangos have been shown to help with age related macular degeneration, cancer prevention, asthma prevention, and aid in digestion due to their high fibre and water content.  And if you wish you had healthier skin and hair, this drink is perfect for you since mangos are high in Vitamin A, which is vital for the growth of all bodily tissues.
