Okay.. Lemme start with I have actually never had Lassi in my life before this Plant Veda one. You must be thinking, hmm.. your review title doesn’t hold too much credit then. BUT, Plant Veda made try and compared many other Lassis. Turned out Plant Veda Mango Lassi is by far the BEST!! It is nicely balanced in terms of the flavor and creaminess, you can taste the fresh mango with a hint of light sweetness (from the maple). When it’s chilled, it is so soothing and enjoyable, knowing there are 10 billion probiotics that is great for gut health is definitely a plus. So I started a little unintentional Lassi journey after I have had my first Plant Veda mango lassi. I was like “this is GREAT, and all that health benefits, why I have never paid attention before”, so whenever it’s accessible to any Lassi, I would never turn it down. I have tried my Indian friends’ home-made Lassi, ended up not loving it coz it’s either too sweet or too thick or it’s with dairy and it gives me some sort of inflammation. I have also tried a few “restaurant-made mango lassi”, I believe it’s with dairy and it is waaaay sweeter. I wouldn’t know what ingredients are exactly in it, bet is some Costco big jar dairy yogurt, which I know actually lots of stores and restaurants in vancouver use it. I mean everyone got their preferences, but I try to keep my diet clean, whole foods, super foods, the less processed the better, packed with nutrients. It just give me way better energy and higher efficiency for the body. It is a lot more expensive to maintain, but I think overtime people that are health conscious will shift towards healthy foods also would prefer disclosure and transparency in food they bought/ being served. On the other hand, Plant Veda is also reasonably priced consider the quality of the product. One liter “amazing taste” mango lassi ( 5,6 cups) for 10.99$ is way better than “not-so-good” taste Bio K + probiotic drink which is around 40$ for 6 little bottles. Not absolute comparable but in terms of probiotic drinks, I would definitely choose the yummy Plant Veda Lassi over anything else!!
