mango milkshake is one of most sought after healthy drink during summers in india.
in fact, mango milkshake and banana milk shake are two very popular drinks in north india where coconut water is not so easily available as in south india. another milkshake which i make sometimes is this dry fruits milkshake recipe.
mango milkshake is very filling and it simply recharges your body. very rarely you might come across a person who does not like mangoes. they are so sweet and juicy, no wonder they are called king of fruits.
i have made this mango milkshake using cashew milk. you can use other nut based milk also like almond milk. if you want then you can use regular milk too.
be very choosy, about the type of mangoes you use for making mango shake. i suggest avoid the mangoes which are too much fibrous and instead prefer the mango variety which is more juicy, sweet and easy to peel. sweeter the mango, lesser the amount of sugar we need and more healthier it will be.
to make this mango shake even more healthy, i have added coconut jaggery. you can even use jaggery or organic sugar. there are few alternatives to flavor the recipe. e.g. saffron and cardamom powder. i have used saffron in this recipe. in case you want to use cardamom powder then you have to mix it with the mango pulp in the initial stage while blending so that it mixes well.
