Turmeric and mango lassi

  • makes 2
  • A little effort

Turmeric (organic in particular) is thought to have anti-inflamatory and immunity-boosting properties. Add it to milk, yogurt or water to make what’s known as golden milk. We’ve made it with sweet mango and subtle spices to make a chai-like lassi. Black pepper and ginger are also high in antioxidants.
