Health Benefits – Mango Lassi

We taste, test, try and research all of our recipes to ensure maximum deliciousness and health benefits. Below you’ll find the results of hard work, making it easy to see exactly what you’re ingesting.

The full recipe (a whole mango) contains 96% of your GDA for vitamin C.

Vitamin C is essential for good skin, bones and teeth, and if you’re a sailor then it’ll help to stop scurvy (Harvard).

It’s also high in calcium and vitamin A.

If you have a low calcium level, the body absorbs it from the skeleton to keep the level normal. This is of course detrimental to your bone health (IOM). So, keep that level high and your bones strong! You know you want it.

Vitamin A is important for vision, your immune system and growth. Also, if too little is consumed it can lead to infected eyes and blindness (IOM).

About Hauke Fox

I'm always on the lookout for these damn smart recipes. You know, those that only take a few minutes to put together and taste delicious. Vegetarian Cooking at home is a way to take back control over what I eat. I don't like what many companies do to animals and the environment with their products.


  1. This looks delish, and so easy to veganize too! I didn’t know you guys did videos…awesome!!!! Not to mention the notes about the water in the directions cracked me up 😀

  2. 5 stars
    Love this recipe – Thanks so much! A couple of observations: The mangos we get here in US stores are nowhere near ripe. Mangos I bought a week ago are just now ready for use. Your patience will be rewarded with a luscious refreshment!

  3. 4 stars
    Also ripping with a quarter teaspoon of tumeric. Adds a complex dryness to the finish and GREAT for inflammation. I drank this after oral surgery, and it soothed a treat!

  4. You could replace some or all of the water with ice. Then there would be no waiting for it to chill…
