Gestational diabetes friendly Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi

Servings: 1 person
Carbohydrate Serves: 2.5 per person
(1 carbohydrate serve = 15 grams of total carbohydrate)

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.

    The one thing I have struggled with through out my pregnancy is yogurt! Doesn’t matter what brand and how low fat it is they ALL have a lot of sugar in them. It sends my levels up like crazy. Considering how common diabetes is I have to say i am very surprised at the lack of diabetic friendly products and recipes available.

    most dairy will have lactose in it. Lactose is a disaccharide sugar derived from galactose and glucose that is found in milk. Lactose makes up around 0-8% of milk, and so wil register as sugar or carbs in the nutritional info.
    Maybe try finding a lactose free yoghurt? You can find heaps of lactose free dairy from health food stores.
