Real Food Weekly Recipe: Mango Lassi

Just like kids I go through 'food jags'.  One week I will be doing eggs and sauerkraut for breakfast, the next it will be a baked buckwheat cereal.  This week I'm serving up Mango Lassi's - a delicious cultured smoothie that is packed full of nutritional coconut-y goodness.  

Try it and let me know what you think.  Not only does this make a great start to the day but  this smoothie also makes a great breakfast or snack for kids!  Use as part of your food introduction, using just the egg yolk if consuming before 12 months.  


1/2 banana
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 cup milk kefir, yogurt, or coconut milk kefir
1/4 cup coconut milk (Native Forest is the only canned coconut milk that is BPA free)
dash of cinnamon
1 raw egg yolk (reserve the whites for other recipes)
Blend all ingredients together adding a little bit of water to thin it out if necessary.  

*Raw egg facts: The sulphur amino acids helps build cartilage and keratin for beautiful skin, hair and nails. Raw eggs also contain an abundance of other vital substances including enzymes, protein, essential fatty acids along with niacin, riboflavin, biotin, choline, vitamins A, D and E, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, iron, iodine, copper, zinc and sulphur.  Egg yolks are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D. Always consume eggs collected from healthy, pasture-raised hens.
