I love mangoes! They are extremely juicy and eating one (properly) is a sticky process requiring both hands and your whole face. To eat a mango without juice running down your chin, cube it, as shown in the picture. It’s easy to take chunks off without wasting any of the fruit or making a mess.
Today’s drink is a smoothie-version of a mango lassi.
~ makes 16oz
1 tablespoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons water
1 large mango, cut up, discard pit
1 cup cashew milk
zest from 1/4 lemon (optional)
mix the chia and water and set aside to make a paste.
Cut up the mango into chicks.
Stir chia seed paste.
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
This is a delicious drink and requires no added sugar.
Variation: If you leave out the cashew milk, it’s a great mango pudding.
Mangos have cancer-fighting antioxidants, an alkalizing effect on our internal environment, and vitamins A & C, among other benefits
