To keep your blood glucose levels steady throughout the day it’s important not to to skip meals. This gestational diabetes friendly Mango Lassi is a good one to have for those days when you don’t have time to prepare a complete meal. Otherwise, you could partner the lassi with a low carb dish like scrambled eggs with spinach and mushrooms (but no toast as your carbs will be covered in the lassi). (Main carbohydrate containing ingredients are listed in bold.)
- 1 cup/ 8 fl.oz fat reduced milk
- ½ cup/ ~120gm/ 4 ounces fat reduced yoghurt
- ~140g/ 5 ounces mango (frozen or fresh)
Combine all ingredients with a blender and serve nice and cold.
Post-GDM tip: Either add some honey or use a honey-sweetened yoghurt. You could also replace some of the milk with light coconut milk.
