When I was asked if we'd like to try out some lassi drinks from Bio Green Dairy, the first thing that popped into my mind was Lassie the clever collie, rescuing her hapless owners from numerous dangers ! Seriously though, traditional lassi is a blend of yogurt, spices and sometimes fruit that hails from the Indian Subcontinent. The Bio Green Dairy's range of lassi yogurt smoothies use tropical fruit in homage to these exotic origins. We tried Lychee and Mango flavours, but they also come in Passion Fruit, Sweet Lassi (infused with Cardamom), Ayran Lassi or Lebanese-style Yogurt.
We received the mango and lychee lassi to try out. Each 250ml bottle contains just enough to fill a tall glass, but they also come in 500ml and 1 litre bottles. Both flavours are delicious. If you served them with a spoon, I'd happily eat them as a dessert ! The lovely fruity flavours taste natural and perfectly complement the creaminess of the yogurt. They were a hit with the Madhouse Mini-testers and also the adults. They're not too heavy and are really refreshing.
100ml of the mango lassi contains 77 calories, 2.7g of protein, 13.6g of carbs and 1.4g of fat and the same quantity of lychee lassi contains 83 calories, 2.2g of protein, 15.6g of carbs and 1.4g of fat. They're a healthy option for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack as they contain bio-live yogurt and real fruit and are a great source of calcium.
