mango lassi and two berry variations

mango, blackberry and strawberry lassi recipes | conifères & feuillus

I’m no expert on the matter, but from my visits to India I’d bet that the mango lassi is the most popular variation of India’s favorite yogurt drink during the summer months. I suppose this is in part due to it being mango season during this time. Lucky for us, here in Canada, we get a healthy supply of mangoes from mango producing countries throughout the world.

I’ve already shared my recipes for the standard salty lassi, as well as the sweet rose lassi. So it’s time for a mango lassi recipe today along with a few variations.mango, blackberry and strawberry lassi recipes | conifères & feuillus Continue reading “mango lassi and two berry variations”

grapefruit green tea thirst quencher

Grapefruit & Green Tea Thrist Quencher | conifères & feuillus

If you search “thirst quencher” in Google Images, you get a bunch of pics of processed sports drinks. If you look up their ingredients, you see that they are mostly water and sugar (a lot of sugar) and a few little nasty chemicals. Hmm… no thanks. And at that price, double no thanks. I can’t wrap my head around this.

Now google “benefits of green tea”. Pretty awesome, no?

How about googling “benefits of grapefruit”? Over the moon awesome.

Now put them together. This, you guys, is my go-to post-workout thirst quencher and it’s amazing.
