Mango Milk Shake

Aam Doodh

Mamta Gupta

Mango milk shake is a popular and refreshing drink in India during summer season, when mangoes are plentiful. You can make it out of season too, using tinned or frozen mango, but that is too sweet for me. I do not add sugar here either, because that makes it too sweet too. However, you can taste and add sugar, if you wish. It is very, very easy to make. Makes 2-3 glasses.


  • 1 cup mango pulp

  • 2 cups cold milk (you can use non-dairy milk, if you need to)

  • 1 cup vanilla ice-cream (you can use non-dairy ice-cream, if you need to)

  • A few strands of saffron

  • Optional : You can add blanched and shredded pistachios as a garnish)


  1. Wash, peel and chop mangoes, discarding the stones.

  2. Place mango pulp, milk and saffron in a blender and blend for a few seconds, until it becomes smooth.

  3. Taste and add sugar, if you need to.

  4. Place 2-3 ice-cubes in each glass (tall glasses look nicer) and pour the milkshake over the cubes.

  5. Garnish with a few strands of saffron or/and shredded pistachios

  6. Serve immediately with a straw.


  • In India, mangoes are traditionally soaked in a bucket/bowl of cold water for a few hours. This is said to wash off the rather unpleasant sap at the stalk end.
