Mango Shake

It’s the mango season…

 Mango shake is a very popular summer drink in India.It’s popular not only for refreshing taste but also for it’s health benefits.

I vividly remember those scorching summers in Delhi, as my son and I would trudge home from school, every time he came across the milk shake stand in the vicinity of our home, he would  just stop there and  tell the guy…bhayya ji ek milkshake dena. Then he would turn around and say…ma, it’s okay right? Ofcourse he will have me stumped…but it was always a pleasure to see the guy peel the mango, dice it, mix in some milk , cardamoms and blend it with a whirr. I can not forget the look on my son’s face, those sparkling eyes as he sipped the milkshake with such relish, balancing the straw, his huge backpack and visually proud of  his milk moustache.


2 mangoes, peeled and chopped or 1 cup mango pulp

2 cups milk, chilled

1 tbsp sugar (optional)

¼ tsp green cardamom powder( optional)

1 scoop of vanilla ice cream (optional)
