Immune Boosting Mango Lassi

From our perspective, travelling the World is probably the most giving and exiting way to spend your life and money. It’s the only thing you can buy that’ll make you richer, as they say.
One of our fondest travel memories was that one time in the romantic city of Udaipur, India, when we sat on the roof of a small guest-house, looking out onto the giant lake Pichola upon which the entire city seemed to float. The red Rajasthani sun was setting somewhere behind a chain of mountains in the horizon, reflecting it’s warm rays in the glittering lake and showering the ‘White City’ in a magic golden light. And it was right here, witnessing this dramatic scenery on top of a small and otherwise insignificant guest-house, we had one of the best mango lassies we’d ever tasted.

When back home again, thinking back on those memories immediately takes us back to that particular spot, feeling that warm Sun again and experiencing the exciting flavours of that drink. However, in order to truly revive this dear memory of ours we decided to recreate those wonderful mango lassies, and so we’ve come up with this Immune Boosting Mango Lassi. It taste like Summer and foreign spices, and because of its probiotic yoghurt base, it’ll make your stomach happy. We also added some of our favourite immune booting ingredients of ginger, honey, and rosehip powder – the latter being somewhat of a nutritional superstar with its high content of iron and vitamins, perfect for keeping your immune system up to speed.

And now, our bags are packed and we’re ready to hit the airport once again. And it’s the best feeling in the World. This time we’re leaving for Israel; for the old and sacred city of Jerusalem; for the busy streets and boulevards of Tel Aviv; for new flavours and inspiration, and most importantly; for new memories.
