Goats Milk Yoghurt Mango Lassi – a gentle & super tasty start to the day

CapriLac Goats Yoghurt Mango Lassi

My girls both had milk protein allergies when they were tiny babies, thankfully they outgrew it around 18 months old  but it’s always at the back of my mind as to how much cows milk is too much for them.  Maybe it’s nothing but Miss E isn’t keen on much milk and never feels great after milkshakes (no problems with icecream though, funny that!) and fussy Miss Now 7 doesn’t have much in the way of dairy as she won’t eat cheese on it’s own (although has no problem with it grated on pasta or hidden in things) and while she won’t say no to a babycino doesn’t drink much milk either, apparently yoghurt this week is on the off list too, hmm! When CapriLac introduced me to their Goats Milk Yoghurt I thought it was worth giving a try as goat products are usually more easily digested than cows.

Now what’s all this got to do with a Mango Lassi you ask?  Well seeing that I’m living in mango territory now, slight tangent – a road trip is even planned to visit the “Big Mango” because yes, there is such a thing and visiting all the “big” things in Australia is on my “bucket list”, random, but true! Mangoes are in abundance at the moment so I thought I’d mix local seasonal produce with the CapriLac Goats Milk Yoghurt  (the goats are on farms in the Gippsland area in Victoria) and Mango Lassi popped into my mind.

Mango lassi with CapriLac Goats Milk Yoghurt

Lassi’s are a great way to start the day, a liquid breakfast of the healthy kind if you like, and a perfect way of “hiding” ingredients from fusspots (I have to admit to not loving mangoes, shock horror but I love this lassi), also great if you need to have breakfast on the run which is often the case in our house (yay for school holidays starting tomorrow!). This Goats Milk Yoghurt Mango Lassi is full of goodness with some extra spices and sweetness thrown into the mix for your drinking pleasure (and health)!

This is now going to be a regular breakfast at BE&S HQ especially over summer. While I was gifted the CapriLac Goats Milk Yoghurt I was more than happy to try it out as it’s got no preservatives, no colours and no artifical flavours which ticks all my boxes on the food front.

CapriLac can be found in the major supermarkets, in a range of health food stores and independent supermarkets or you can find out more at www.caprilac.com.

    Oooh yes I’d love to try this!! I’m ok with milk but I struggle with creamy things (which sucks because who doesn’t love cream!!!!). I’ve just added the ingredients to this weeks grocery list. Thanks!!

    Vicki this is right down my alley!! I’ve been buying the CapriLac yoghurt for a while now and LOVE it! So gentle on the stomach and I’m a fan of that unique goaty flavour (which most people don’t seem to like, strangely). And cardamom is one of the big loves of my life (that’s a big call, I know!), so I will definitely be making this!! Thanks for the recipe 🙂

      Cardamon really adds something to it. The CapriLac is really yummy I think too.
