Indian Mango Lassi … like a Boss

Indian Mango Lassi

I must confess that I’ve never been a juicer or blender, the whole green smoothie craze passing me by in a verdant vegetable-based blur. But a recent blip on my previously glowing health report card has meant a different approach to nutrition for me, at least for the foreseeable future, as I get my out of sorts body back under control.

In one of those perfect moments of serendipity, I received the news from my doctor AND the delivery a Boss To Go Plus courtesy of the lovely folks at Breville on the very same day. Which means low GI fruit and veggie packed smoothies – whether they be green, blue or orange – are suddenly on the table. Quite literally!

I’ve been experimenting away with superfood smoothies, packing Bruce, our Boss To Go Plus (yes, we name appliances) with variations of raspberries, blueberries, spinach, avocado, kale, apples, grapes, limes, lemons, coconut water and anti-oxidant rich green tea. Then tossing in handfuls of nuts, goji berries, flax seeds and chia seeds for good measure. And they’re not the lumpy bumpy gritty bitter green monstrosities I thought they’d be. The 1,000 Watt Boss to Go blitzes everything up until it’s super smooth and almost silky in texture, and packs the smoothies full of micro bubbles making the end result lighter and easier to drink. And the biggest surprise of all, they taste freaking awesome. Well most of them, there have been a few errors in ingredient judgement. Avocado and lime are meant for tacos, not beverages.

And thanks to the simple one-touch functions, even Raffles has started blending like a boss, whipping up Indian Mango Lassis, one of his favourite drinks, at every opportunity.

Prepping the Mango Lassi

To help his mama make a quicker recovery, and knowing as he does that I usually skip breakfast while getting everyone else fed and ready for the school run, he’s started whipping me one up in the café style cups so I can grab it and go, and I too get a healthy start to my day.

With its yoghurt and mango base, an Indian Mango Lassi is already low cal and packed full of healthy fibre, Vitamin A and C as well as plenty of probiotics to help my digestive system.

But Dr Raffles has been adding a zing of ginger for taste and an immune boost, a sprinkle of turmeric for colour and its anti-inflammatory properties and a handful of mint or pistachio nuts, just because he knows I like them.

    OMG! This looks super yummy and super easy to make. Tell me, is the Boss to Go easy to clean? All my blended are so hard and I’m super busy in the morning so need something easy.

      They’re great – and have build in lids so you can drink ’em on the run!

    Printed out the recipe and can’t wait to try it. I’ve been wanting to add turmeric and cardamom to my spice rack and this is just the incentive I needed!!
