Mango Lassi / Mango Yoghurt Drink

Lassi is the traditional yoghurt / Curd based drink in India, Mango lassi is the most common recipe in every Indian house in summer season. First let us know the health benefits of this lassie. 

MANGO:
It's Summer season.... no i'm wrong mango season....Yes, Mango is the favorite fruit for every one. I love to have them in any form....I used to love mango more in my tutti frutti.
Nutrition Facts of Mango:

Mango is rich in a variety of phytochemicals and nutrients. The fruit pulp is high in prebiotic dietary fibervitamin C, diverse polyphenols and provitamin Acarotenoids.
Mango contains essential vitamins and dietary minerals. The antioxidant vitamins AC and E compose 25%, 76% and 9% of the Dietary Reference Intake(DRI) in a 165 grams (5.8 oz) serving. Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine, 11% DRI), vitamin K (9% DRI), other B vitamins and essential nutrients, such as potassium,copper and 17 amino acids are at good levels. Mango peel and pulp contain other phytonutrients, such as the pigment antioxidants – carotenoids and polyphenols – and omega-3 and -6 polyunsaturated fatty acid
Yoghurt:
Yoghurt is nutritionally rich in proteincalciumriboflavinvitamin B6 and vitamin B12. It has nutritional benefits beyond those of milk. People who are moderately lactose-intolerant can consume yoghurt without ill effects, because much of the lactose in the milk precursor is converted to lactic acid by the bacterial culture.


I love yoghurt, I have learned recently that consumption of low fat yoghurt results in weight loss due to calcium in it. So, Folks enpjy this drink as much as you can in this summer.
