Mango Lassi (Mango Yogurt Drink)

Mango Lassi

There might not be an Indian home where mango lassi is not prepared. During mango season, this is a regular in every home. You can add little cardamom and saffron too and they complement mango lassi very well.

I added chia seeds to my glass of lassi as these are my latest craze. Chia seeds /sabja seeds are a complete source of protein providing all the essential amino acids in an easily digestible form.

Chia seeds are said to have:
*2 times the protein of any other seed or grain,
*5 times the calcium of milk, plus boron which is a trace mineral that helps transfer calcium into your bones,
*2 times the amount of potassium as bananas,
*3 times the reported antioxidant strength of blueberries
*3 times more iron than spinach
*copious amounts of omega-3 and omega-6, which are essential fatty acids

Just add a tsp of chia seeds to half glass of water. It will swell in no time.
