Mango Shake – Celebrating the King of Fruits

1 Jun

Mango Shake

The lovelier the item, the scarcer it is. Ripe mangoes are in season for only a short while. This is that heavenly time. And so we have the fruit in myriad ways – in mango raita, in mixed fruit rabri, in custard, or simply cubed. Mango shake is a regular breakfast drink for me while the good mango times last.

It’s filling, nutritious, and delicious. What more could one ask for?

Mango Shake

You Need:

[per glass]

  • Chilled milk – 2/3 glass
  • Mango – 1/2 (or enough to give 1 cup of cut mango)
  • Ice cubes – 2
  • Sugar/honey – to taste; will also depend on the sweetness of the mango. With a ripe Banganpalli, I add a teaspoon.

How To Make Mango Shake:

Peel the mango and slice out the mango flesh. Discard the seed.


Place the mango slices and sugar/honey in a blender. Top the mango slices with half the milk, and churn, till the sugar dissolves.

Mango Blend

Add the remaining milk and ice cubes to the blender, and continue to churn for a minute.

And that’s it. Mango shake is ready.

Serve chilled mango shake immediately. This thick cool drink an be had along with breakfast, or by itself anytime – though its especially good during a summer day.

Mango Milkshake


You can alter the ratio of mango:milk in mango shake to your liking. Increasing the quantity of mango will give you a thicker, deeper colored drink.

Substitute milk with almond milk or coconut milk for a vegan mango shake.
