Mango Shake / Mango Milkshake

Summer is almost here. Do you have any plans for this summer? Well, with the past year's experience I think we would keep ourselves locked inside rather than going out. Last year, we kept running away from sun. It was pretty hot. Atleast, we felt so. Five minutes in the sun was like sedative for me. I would fall off to sleep as soon as we would be back home, all tanned and burnt. I wonder how harsh it would be this time. If at all there was a weather moderate enough and remained the same all through out the year. Ahh, but then again, we would complain...human nature.



Now that mangoes are in season, I thought I should do this post. I must admit, I really miss the taste and smell of mangoes back home. The mangoes that we get here are no way close to comparison what we get there.




Anyways, today's post is Mango shake - which we absolutely love having and has got nostalgic moments attached to it. As a child, every summer we used to wait for the mangoes to be in the market to ask my mom to make these or make it ourselves. That easy it was. And not a drop of it ever got wasted. As a kid, I may have sat with rice(I didn't don't like rice) for hours to finish it but food that I like, used to vanish in no time. Mango shake was one such thing. When I would be done, my brother would then start drinking and say ummm...delicious and I would have no choice since my share of mango shake would have already reached my stomach.



Give it a try. These creamy and thick shakes can help you stay hydrated and full while you stay active during this summer.





Ingredients
  1. 1 medium sized fully ripe Mango - peeled and sliced
  2. 2 tbsp of sugar (you could add more if you want as per your need)
  3. 1 1/2 cup of cold pasteurized/boiled milk
Method

  • In a blender, add the sliced mango pieces and the sugar. Puree it.
  • Add the chilled milk to it and beat it untill the milk and mango puree blend well.
  • Adjust the sugar if need be and beat it again.
  • Serve chilled and enjoy.
Tips
  1. Always puree the mango first and then add in the milk else there are chances that you might end up having small pieces of mango in the shake. 
  2. I like the mango shake thicker. If you would wish to have a more thinner version add in more milk as required.
  3. You could substitute sugar with honey for more healthier option.

  1. Every second sentence out of my mouth is a complain about how hot it is and I have to remind myself to stop:). It is already unbearable and the worst is yet to come. The only good thing about this season are the mangoes I guess. Can't wait to try out all the mango treats, this shake is always a favorite and first on my to-do list.

  9. Its already hot there? Here it is late spring, raining most of the time and bulbs are slowly sprouting. Temps are in the 50's. I agree the mangoes we used to eat back in India (from our own backyard) is not even comparable with what we get here. I miss those rippen mangoes those fall from the trees during the monsoon season :) The fresh smell of the mango that falls on the ground with oozing 'karra'....mmm...I am thinking of Kerala now :)
