Mango Strawberry Milkshake

Mango Strawberry Milkshake

Last Updated on

For the last day of Mango Mania, I have an easy milk shake. The key to this recipe is good mangoes or a good quality store bought mango pulp. I made mango milk shake on Friday for breakfast and was very lazy to take pictures that early in the morning. Well, 8 am is early enough for me to start a photo session! Since it is such an easy recipe, I just drank my share of the shake that I kept on the table for almost 30 minutes, telling myself to get into action and click some pictures. Since that wasn’t going to happen that soon and since I was already hungry, I gave up. I was going to make it again.

Mango Strawberry Milkshake

On Saturday when I made mango fool, I realized did not have any more cans of mango pulp in the pantry. That evening when I went for a short walk, I reluctantly picked up 3 mangoes as I was not so sure about the taste of the mangoes. This morning, after I made the milk shake, I wished I had at least made a short trip to Lexington Avenue on 28th street to pick up at least one can of mango pulp, if not a trip to Jackson Heights. The mangoes were tasteless and the shake turned out ok. Since the mangoes were tasteless, I added some strawberries. I had some sliced pineapple too but since I used it for yesterday’s recipe and was lazy to cut and de-seed pomegranate this morning, strawberries it was! Lexington Ave and 28th street has couple of small Indian stores and is the go to place when I am not in a mood to go to Jackson Heights, Queens for Indian groceries.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 small Mangoes or 1 – 1 ½ cups peeled and chopped Mangoes (If using mango pulp, check notes below)
  • 3 – 4 small – medium Strawberries or ½ cup chopped Strawberries
  • 2 cups Milk (I used fat free)
  • 6 oz. or 4 – 5 tbsp. Vanilla Ice-cream (the measure is approximate and mango flavor would be even better.)
  • 1 – 1 ½ tbsp. Sugar (adjust to taste depending on how sweet the fruits are. If using store bought pulp, you might not need additional sugar)

Preparation:

  • Chop the fruit and add all the ingredients to a blender and pulse or puree it until fruits are ground to paste. Alternately, first grind the fruit and sugar with little bit of milk to a fine paste. Then add rest of the ingredients and pulse it until everything is mixed well.
  • Transfer to serving glasses and serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to use.

Note:

  • If using mango pulp, use 1 – 1 ½ cups mango pulp. Mango pulp can be adjust to taste and desired flavor. Also if the pulp is sweetened, sugar might not be need. I used just 1 tsp. sugar when I made it with mango pulp. I used Swad brand Kesar sweetened mango pulp.
  • For an Indian touch, add a pinch or two of cardamom powder. Ice-cream can be skipped if cardamom is used. If ice-cream is not used, may want to reduce the milk or added more fruit depending on show thick you want the shake to be.

  1. The biggest problem with the local varieties is that you never know which one will be tasteless. The shake looks great even if the mangoes were not.
