Juicing Drinks – ‘Mango Lassi’

‘Mango Lassi’

As the lassi originates from India, it’s hardly surprising that this is a super cool drink. Though you can make it with normal dairy yoghurt, soya yoghurt is used here to provide hormone regulation and to help build strong bones.

Just thinking about the smell and flavour of mangoes is enough to conjure up tropical images, but eating them is even better, as they not only taste sublime but provide lots of essential nutrients.

Drink this chilled if you must, but if it’s too cold, you lose both aroma and flavour.

Vital statistics

Mangoes are a rich source of health-protective betacarotenes and other age-defying carotenoids and flavonoids. They’re also rich in potassium for heart protection and in vitamin C for your immune defences. The phytoestrogens in soya are known to be part of the reason why Asian women have less breast cancer, less osteoporosis, and hardly ever suffer the discomfort of menopausal hot flushes.
