Mango Lassi with Extra Protein

Mango lassi is easily made by simply mixing canned mango pulp with yogurt and water but if you want to eat fresh foods and avoid canned food because of the bpa in the cans' lining that leaches into their contents, this is a simple recipe made from whole foods that tastes great and has protein too.

1 mango (Make sure it is ripe enough so that you don't need to add any sugar to the lassi)
6-7 heaping tablespoons of organic whole yogurt
A handful of pistachios
1.5-2 cups fresh almond milk (to make almond milk just soak your almonds overnight and then drain and blend with three times the water in the morning).  You can adjust this based on how thick you'd like the lassi.
Add a tspn of Chia seeds or flaxseed powder for more protein.

Blend the ingredients together and you're done.  I like the Nutribullet because it is easy to use and clean, and doesn't have bpa or phthalates.
I forgot to write down how many servings this makes and can no longer remember much in these sleep deprived days of caring for an infant and a toddler but I believe it made around 8 small glasses of mango lassi.

Check back every Monday and Thursday for new posts.
