3. Mango Lassi

One must always maintain steady glucose level by eating at regular intervals. If one compromises on lunch, then the best way to compensate during teatime is to replace your cuppa with mango lassi. A yummy combo of mango and sugar-free regular yogurt/curd has the goodness of health and tastes great too. 

VIVO Buddy Fact: Add a dash of coconut milk for an extra dose of yum.

What’s better than a vitamin-filled smoothie? A fibre-dense whole grain smoothie, combined with yoghurt or skimmed milk; a glass can be mouthful, stomach-full and keep you healthy & happy.

VIVO Buddy Fact: Add the super fruit banana as a secret ingredient to give yourself that much-needed boost.

Oh wait, before you go, your pal VIVO Buddy has two things to say:
