Healthy Green Mango Lassi Recipe - Desserts with Benefits

Just a few nights ago, my family and I went to an Indian restaurant — I probably haven’t gone to one in over a year because Indian cuisine barely exists where I go to school — and it brought back so many memories! I used to look forward to going to Indian restaurants because I always got that popular, (super) sweet and creamy Mango Lassi.

I was thinking about it yesterday and decided to make my own version…  but with a little hint of veg…  a Spinach Mango Lassi!

Servings: 2 servings
Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins

Ingredients

  • 2 large Mangos (peeled and chopped into chunks)
  • 1 cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Baby Spinach
  • 5-7 Ice Cubes
  • 1-2 tbs Honey (optional)

Instructions

  • Add honey and cardamom to taste.
  • Enjoy!
Course: Drinks

This is a super thick smoothie, I ate part of it with a spoon!  But, if you are the type of person who likes more liquidy drinks, feel free to add 100% mango nectar (no added sugar) or even applesauce.  To lower the glycemic index, try adding coconut milk.

  1. These look refreshing! Do you use clover honey, or another type? By the way, if you don’t mind, I put your blog as one of my favorites in the ‘links’ section of my blog. ^_^ Thank you for being such an inspiration!

    RC,
    I use grade A clover honey now because it’s cheaper than the types I used to buy 🙁 although it is easier to work with and a lot sweeter. Thank you! I don’t mind. I tried going to your blog but it said “page not found.” I would love to follow you though 🙂

    That should work! I’ve got a facebook page and everything going for it! SO EXCITING!

  4. This is an amazing idea. We in India are a fan of mango lassi, but this twist is really making me salute your creativity.

  5. The recipe looks delicious.
    Just a heads up.
    Raw Spinach is a nutritional blocker. Raw Spinach contains Oxalic acid which binds with Calcium and Iron making them insoluble. Which renders the raw Spinach non-nutritious. The Oxalic acid will also render the calcium and iron from the yogurt inert.
    cooking or steaming the Spinach will break it down and makes it nutritious.
