Gettin Juiced

lango lassi

Good Morrow friends….Happy Thursday.

I went all holiday on myself on Monday and ate…and ate and ate.  Healthy things, mind you, shrimp and fruit smoothies and sweet potato (chips…. almost hid that ‘chip’ part from you) and found myself in BBQ heaven.

Go for it.  Its memorial day.

However, the next morning my body looked at me and said, “really?  You went there?”  I did, body.  I went there.

So herein starts my smoothie fast.

A smoothie fast, you say?  Why yes…I dig juice fasts but haven’t been able to sustain any of them, I need my protein.  I’m mean without my protein.  So smoothies shall be my food from the earth.  ANd my gift to my body.

You are welcome to join me, you are welcome to smile and eat spaghetti.  Nevertheless, here’s my smoothie journey.  Most recipes will come from my best friend and connoisseur of all things flavor, Marushka.  We are rebalancing the food pyramid, and so far, its delicious.


Marushka’s Mango Lassi

  • 1/2  cup nonfat yogurt (Coconut yogurt is the best, go for “So Delicious” brand).
  • 1/4 coconut milk
  • 1 mango or healthy handful of frozen mango chunks
  • about 4 tablespoons honey
  • Small handful of ice cubes
  • 1 plantain
  • 1/2 tablespoon vanilla hemp or whey protein (for those interested)

Play around with consistency – adding more milk or yogurt as needed/desired – this gives a lovely, whipped consistency.  It feels like dessert.  Pour a little rum in there and I swear I won’t tell anyone.
