Tropical Lassi

This fruity tropical lassi is thick, sweet, and absolutely delicious. Since it’s packed full of Vitamin C, it will help ward off those pesky winter colds going around.

Tropical Lassi

‘Tis the season for colds, the flu, and stomach viruses. The flu has been making it’s rounds. It started with my mom, and it’s currently attacking my little brother. Needless to say, I’ve been keeping a safe distant from my parents’ infected house.

I want no parts of it. Who’s going to make the food if I can’t? Squirrel?

I just laughed out loud.

Tropical Lassi

In order to ward off the merciless flu virus that has been taking the country by surprise, I’ve been eating a lot of citrus and sipping on daily smoothies that have been packed to the brim with Vitamin-C and immune-boosting antioxidants.

Every Florida Grapefruit contains at least 100 percent of your daily recommended amount of Vitamin C, a nutrient that supports a healthy immune system. Not only is Florida Grapefruit rich in vitamin C, but it’s also rich in vitamin A, potassium, and fiber. Right now, Florida Grapefruit is at its sweetest and juiciest.

Tropical Lassi

I love the mango lassi from my local Indian restaurant, so much that I usually crave it on a weekly basis. It’s sweet, tangy, and filling. I decided to get creative and added pineapple chunks and a large grapefruit (peeled, of course) to the blender with the mango and Greek yogurt. I also added a touch of honey for sweetness.

This tropical lassi blends up sweet, tangy, and thick.

    I hope your family recovers from the flu soon! This lassi is gorgeous, and I absolutely love the idea of using grapefruit juice to bump up the vitamin C and the flavor.

    I love how bright and summery this is! It’s been overcast more often than not up here in NJ, so I feel like one of these lassis would taste like a ray of sunshine, and I need that.

    Sing it, girl! I love lassis and this one sounds like the perfect way of preventing illness. A lassi a day keeps the doctor away, can I get a woop woop?!

    Have a great weekend!

    I LOVE lassis. My dad grew up in India and he’s always make us traditional lassis when we were kids. Loving this tropical spin to it though and it’s so perfect with all the good citrus right now!
