I whipped up this lassi in five minutes, so it is perfect when you are short on time but need something filling.
I add flaxseed to the lassi to make sure I get my intake of Omega-3 fatty acids! I also use only half a banana because I want to keep the amount of sugar in this lassi low. If you are wondering what you should do with the other half of the banana--peel it, throw it in a Ziploc bag, and freeze it for the next time you want to make yourself a lassi!
Most importantly, I used blueberries instead of mangoes for a few reasons. First, Alphonso mangoes (the typical Indian variety) are hard to find in the US, and require a special trip to the Indian grocery store. Second, blueberries are great for your skin and have less sugar than mangoes. Third, it is summer, and blueberries are in season. Just look at these beauties! Yummmmm....
Ingredients (serves 2-4)
- Combine almond milk, greek yogurt, blueberries, banana, and flaxseed in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Add ice cubes to your glass(es) and pour the lassi over the ice.
