Mango Berry Lassi is often consumed in India during the blistering hot summer months as a cooling, nourishing meal replacement. It offers tons of digestive support due to the probiotics and good bacteria in it, which in turn supports a healthy immune system.
The lassi’s main ingredient, mango, is full of dietary fiber and digestive enzymes. It contains rich stores of vitamin A, C, and B6, along with minerals like potassium, copper, and magnesium. Touting powerful antioxidants like quercetin, betacarotene, and astragalin, mango has the ability to neutralize free radicals in our body which helps us stay healthy and strong.
At our houses, we opt to skip the dairy used in the standard lassi, and instead whip up some homemade coconut yogurt to use as the base. (We also don’t restrict our mango lassi drinking times to just the summer, because this recipe is too good to only drink one season per year!)
Happy to avoid sugar any time we can, we opt to use honey or stevia to sweeten our lassi. We also throw in some antioxidant-rich blackberries for added immune boosting support to take this drink from ordinary to extraordinary! If you don’t like blackberries, you could use blueberries or raspberries.
Here’s how we create our Mango Berry Lassi.
