Mango Milkshake

Since its summer vacation here, kids are having a great time. Also its been a very hot summer so far with heat wave warnings as well. Mango Milkshake offers a delicious and cool respite from this summer heat. It is one of the beverage we all love especially my kids. Its beautiful yellow color and it being so rich and flavorful makes it irresistible.  

Growing up in Mumbai, India my mom made Mango Milkshake and Mango Lassi on a regular basis when we would get fresh ripe mangoes during the mango season. Over here in the US , its hard at times to find these Indian mangoes. You may find them in the Indian grocery stores though. But lazy me just loves to buy the canned Mango pulp which I must say is very handy. For this recipe feel free to use fresh ripe mangoes, if not canned mango pulp works just fine.    

Ingredients :
  • 1 cup mango pulp
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 cups crushed ice 
* To make Mango Lassi use 2 cups plain yogurt instead of milk. You could adjust the amount of sugar to taste. I have used sweetened mango pulp. You might need to add more sugar if you are using  fresh ripe mangoes.   

Preparation : Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Mango Milkshake is ready to serve. This recipe serves 4.
