An Unbelievably Great Post-Workout Shake

Mango Protein Shake

I just polished off this post-workout protein shake and I am ready for another. My version is a protein filled take on Jamie Oliver’s Mango Lassi.

Here’s Jamie’s recipe:

    • 9 fluid ounces (255 milliliters) plain yogurt
    • 4 1/2 fluid ounces (130 milliliters) milk
    • 4 1/2 fluid ounces (130 milliliters) canned mango pulp or 7 ounces (200 grams) from 3 fresh mango, stoned and sliced
    • 4 teaspoons sugar, to taste, or feel free to try salt and cardamom seeds
    • Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend for 2 minutes, then pour into individual glasses, and serve.
    • Feel free to try salt and cardamom seeds.
    • The lassi can be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours

In my version, I use:

      • Approximately the same amount of yogurt. I used Balkan or Greek style yogurt. It’s thicker and creamier.
      • I replaced the milk with water
      • I replaced the mango pulp with frozen mango
      • I skipped the salt and cardamom (none in my spice rack)
      • I added 5 grams each of creatine and glutamine
      • I added 2 scoops of vanilla whey protein

I am not kidding when I say this was the BEST protein shake I have ever drank.

Give it a try.

  1. Hey DR, I remember the Astro yogurt and the President’s choice brand when I used to live in Toronto. Great pics by the way, did you use your digital camera? Hm, I kinda miss Loblaw’s… Well, it sounds like a good recipe. I will substitute in some products available here and give it a try…
