MANGO LASSI

 

marrojo19-mango-lassiHow could I not like mangos at all in the past, and now they are one of my favorite fruits? Do these things also happen to you?

These ones were especially good. They are from a friend’s orchard, and he explained to me that the amazing flavor they had, was not so much related to the fact that they are organic, but to the way he picks them up, little by little, when they are truly ripe and at their best.
On the other hand, those rocks that we buy at the supermarkets, are collected all at once, and then they are let to ripen in the fridges.

That, not only makes a BIG difference in taste, but also in the vitamins and nutrients.

Anyway, we know that buying eco is the best thing, but if we have to choose, many times, it is almost more important to try to find local products from small productions, who can afford the “luxury” of harvesting when the product is at it’s best, above “eco” certifications.

Ok, to the point, this smoothie is soooo good, that you’ll forget it’s super healthy too! If you are into juicing, perhaps you’ll like this other one I made recently.

Do you make homemade juices? If you do, could you share with us the recipes? Are you, like me, a little bit juice-obsessed lately?

MANGO LASSI
Autor: 
Raciones: 2 smoothies
 
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 plain yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons of chia seeds
  • * Coconut water . I use about 125ml, but experiment until you get the consistency you like best. If you do not have coconut water you can just use water.
  • Optional: ½ peeled lemon
  • Optional: a piece of peeled ginger, about 1 cm thick.
  1. Blend all ingredients until well mixed and no lumps. Taste and adjust lemon and water to your liking.
  2. Drink it right away.
Notas
- Coconut water is super healthy, and now they say it's much better for replenishing minerals than isotonic drinks. I usually use half and the other half stays for three or four days in the fridge.
- 79% carbs, 16% proteins and 5% fat
