As soon as summer kicks in and the mango season arrives, I make mango milkshake pretty much everyday in my kitchen (along with Mango Lassi). Sarvesh is a huge mango fan (I have mentioned that several times on the blog) and his favorite way to enjoy mangoes is by turning them into milkshakes.

I enjoy mangoes too but I am more of a mango eating person than drinking it. But I make a glass of chilled mango shake for him everyday and that’s his breakfast throughout summer. It’s so easy to make, literally takes me 5 minutes and is a great way to indulge in sweet summer mangoes.

What is Mango Milkshake

Pretty simply, it’s just sweet mangoes combined with milk. If the mangoes aren’t sweet enough, you can add sugar. You can keep it plain or flavor it with cardamom, saffron etc. My everyday mango milkshake is just plain. I often call is just mango shake.

If you want to make it more indulgent, you can add a scoop of vanilla or mango ice cream to make it rich and also more tasty.

Ingredients

Mango: for the best tasting mango milkshake, always use sweet mangoes in season. I love using Indian mango varieties like kesar and alphonso for the shake.

Milk: you can use any milk of choice. Whole milk makes is thicker and creamier but 2% or fat-free will also work. You can also use almond milk or oat milk for a vegan version.

Sweetener: the milkshake can be sweetened with any sweetener of choice- cane sugar, brown sugar, coconut sugar, honey, agave or maple syrup.

Step by Step Instructions

1- To a blender (of you can also use a hand blender), add mango pulp from 2 sweet mangoes. Then add 1 to 2 tablespoons of sugar to taste. Amount of sugar will also depend on how sweet the mangoes are. If the mangoes are really sweet, you can even skip the sugar.

2- Then add 1 & 1/2 cups of cold milk. You can use milk of choice. Whole milk makes it creamier.

3- Blend until everything is well combined. You can also add 3 to 4 ice cubes if you want.

4- Thick and creamy milkshake is now ready. Pour into serving glasses and serve immediately.

Vegan Mango Milkshake

You can easily make this mango milkshake vegan by using non-dairy milk. Oat milk is my personal favorite but you can also use almond, soy or any non dairy milk that you prefer

Tips & Notes

  • Make it refined sugar-free: if the mangoes are sweet, you can skip the sugar and the shake will be naturally sweetened. But if you want to make it sweet yet keep the shake refined sugar free, you can use natural sweeteners like dates. Even honey or jaggery will work.
  • Flavor the shake: this recipe is for a simple mango shake, if you want, you can flavor it with cardamom powder or saffron or even both. Some rose water or vanilla extract can also be added.
  • Make it richer and creamier: add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make the mango milkshake creamier, richer and tastier. I usually do this when I make this as a special treat. You can even add a scoop of mango ice cream.
  • Finish with whipped cream: you can always add some homemade whipped cream on top before serving.
  • Garnish with nuts: if you want, you can garnish your milkshake with chopped pistachios, almonds or even cherries for a pop of color.
  • Serve it immediately: I have noticed that unlike mango lassi, the flavor of mango milkshake changes when you store it for a longer period of time. So, I suggest serving it immediately.
