How is your new year going so far? Many of us take the month of January to renew, refresh, and rejuvenate our health. I know I am. So I came up with this most fabulous “MangoLassi” smoothie and am delighted to share it with you. It has chia seeds for omega 3, fiber and calcium, turmeric which is a powerful antioxidant (cancer fighting) and liver supporter, high protein and heart healthy almond milk, fresh squeezed orange juice for vitamin c, carrots for beta carotene (cancer fighter) and vitamin A (to enhance eye health), and mango for sweetness and whole host of nutritional goodies (vitamins A, C, B6 as well as folate, fiber and copper). I came up with this by trying to make the perfectly pretty orange smoothie. I would say this one is a total success. Pretty, healthy, and delish. Wanna try it? Here you go!
2 cups almond milk
3 organic carrots
2 cups frozen mango
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 tablespoon chia seed
juice of 1 orange
Add to your blender and blend until smooth.
This came out like a thin milkshake using a Vitamix, so adjust the liquid to your liking. Serves 2. Let me know what you think!
