New Year New You Mango Lassi Smoothie

culinary therapy 006

How is your new year going so far? Many of us take the month of January to renew, refresh, and rejuvenate our health.  I know I am. So I came up with this most fabulous “MangoLassi” smoothie and am delighted to share it with you. It has chia seeds for omega 3, fiber and calcium, turmeric which is a powerful antioxidant (cancer fighting) and liver supporter, high protein and heart healthy almond milk, fresh squeezed orange juice for vitamin c, carrots for beta carotene (cancer fighter) and vitamin A (to enhance eye health), and mango for sweetness and whole host of nutritional goodies (vitamins A, C, B6 as well as folate, fiber and copper). I came up with this by trying to make the perfectly pretty orange smoothie.  I would say this one is a total success. Pretty, healthy, and delish. Wanna try it? Here you go!
