This nutrient-packed smoothie is a play on a “lassi,” a traditional yogurt-based drink from the Indian Subcontinent. A typical lassi is made with yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes fruit. Many lassis are served as savory drinks, but sweeter, smoothie-like lassis have gained popularity in recent times. This “lassi” can be made with either mango or banana. It blends warming spices with sweet fruit, honey, and creamy yogurt for a unique sipping experience!
This recipe is a great choice to “detox” your body from the indulgences of the weekend. The yogurt provides probiotics, which are essential for proper digestion. Turmeric and ginger both have powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Cayenne pepper is known to boost metabolism and circulation. Mangoes and bananas are full of fiber, potassium, and antioxidants which all play crucial roles in organ function. Hemp seeds and coconut oil provide healthy fats, which are essential for brain function, and for keeping hunger at bay.
Combine all ingredients in blender, blend until smooth. Garnish with a sprinkling of turmeric or fresh fruit slices.
