Mango Shake

There is no other fruit in the world that makes me feel so nostalgic, and takes me home in a fraction of a second, like mango. I do not know how to tell you how much I love mango.  There was a time I would trade almost anything for a mango! I haven't changed much.

Mangoes are a growing up experience for all Keralites.  Eating them raw with salt and chili powder or biting into the luscious fruit I am sure everyone will have a childhood story to share.  Children biting into whole mangoes almost bigger than their faces and the juice flowing down their clothes are a familiar site this time of they year.  I miss the mango trees and those familiar faces from home but I am glad we have Kesar Mangoes in tins to buy as much as I want.




Ingredients:

Mango Pulp- 2 1/2 cup
Milk- 1/2 cup
Ice cubes- 4-5
Sugar- to taste
Cardamom powder- 1/4 tsp


Method:

Blend everything together in a blender and serve.

This is enough for 2-3 servings.

Notes:

If you are using fresh ripe mangoes, peel off the skin and take flesh of 2 mangoes(small to medium size) to get the same amount.

  8. My daughter makes mango shakes all the time. For breakfast it's always mango or guava juice for her. We have a Mango tree but we are always fighting the squirrels for them. In the off season we can buy frozen mango pulp at the grocer.

    We'll definitely try your recipe with the cardamom. You pic is lovely!
