     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 went to school--and it brought back so many memories! I used to look forward to going to Indian restaurants because of their popular, sweet and creamy Mango Lassi drink.

I was thinking about the drink yesterday and decided to make my own version...  a Spinach Mango Lassi!

Spinach Mango Lassi:  [fat free, vegan*]
(serves two)
    2 large Mangos
    1 cup Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt*
    1 cup Baby Spinach
    5-7 Ice Cubes
        1-2 tbs Honey*
        pinch of Cardamom

1. Put all ingredients into a blender (in the order of the recipe, so chops mangos first etc...) and liquify until spinach is broken up as pictured above (add honey and stevia to taste)

*vegans, use soy/coconut/almond yogurt and agave nectar instead of honey


     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!

  2. 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 :)

  3. Haha I feel you, broke college students for the win! And I believe I left out the L on my link bahaha

    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.

  6. Anonymous,
    Wow, I did not know that... I'm learning nutrition facts even when I'm out of school for summer :) Thanks!

  7. I wish I had a blender to make all your creamy looking, yummy green drinks :'(
