Remember how I made this Mango Avocado Salsa last year, with some Ratnagiri Alphonsa Mangoes that our friend gifted us? Well, this year also we got a box of those lovely mangoes (Thanks Sheena & Shiju!). As I said last time, those mangoes are too good, that you feel that you’re ruining them if you try to make something out of it.
Having said that, I made this mango milkshake with those mangoes. I blame the weather for that! Summer is here in Bahrain and it's scorching hot outside, the moment you get back home from outside, you automatically run to fridge to have something cold. I stopped drinking canned fruit juice a long time ago, also no sweetened sodas for me. There was a time when I used to kinda live on that, especially during my college days…. hmmm… no more.
So the other day when I was back inside the house after running a few chores, I desperately wanted something cold and sweet, since I was feeling so tired. The first thing I saw when I opened the fridge were these mangoes and there was no stopping me!
Well, the recipe part is pretty simple and easy. There is nothing like sipping into a thick milkshake topped with ice cream on a hot and humid day :) Don’t you agree?!
Here is the recipe…
- 2 Ripe Mangoes (cut into cubes)
- 1.5 cups Chilled Milk
- 2-3 scoops Vanilla Ice-cream
- Sugar / honey ( as required, refer notes)
- Blend together cubed mangoes, ice cubes and 1/2 cup milk. Once it's smooth, add remaining milk and 2 scoops of ice cream and sugar or honey (if using).
- Serve chilled.
