I also used another very famous mango called “Kesar Mango” in this smoothie. As described by “YumMangoes.in” “Kesar variety of mangoes are considered to be one of the best mangoes, which are famous for their fruit quality, attractiveness fruit and pulp colour, taste & good shelf life. Kesar mangoes are mostly grown in Gujarat, Western India. Kesar Mangoes are commonly known as the queen of Mangoes. This variety is slightly smaller in size as compared to the Alphonso mango variety but offers a unique taste.”

The best part of making this smoothie is that a lot of these fruits are in season right now, so it’s more affordable. Instead of using frozen you can opt out and use fresh fruits with even more of the goodness in the fruit. The more berries in our diet the healthier fibers and antioxidants we get. Mangoes, peaches and pineapple and coconut give it that tropical summer taste, few ingredients, but a worthwhile indulgences.

I like to add half coconut milk and half water to make the consistency a bit more liquid…that’s just the way me and family like it. This time I’ve used fresh fruits which I had previous washed and freeze.  I like to use frozen fruits cause I can make it right away by placing everything into the blender and enjoy it instantly ! Delicious cold Fruity Treasure Smoothie.

Mango Milkshake is the best refreshing summertime drink, especially when it’s made from fresh “Alphonso Mangoes“. Mango Kulfi Milkshake is a super delicious drink with a twist. It’s thick, creamy, flavorful and absolutely YUMMY!

I had share my “Mast Mango Kulfi” recipe in my previous post which is also a summertime delight and adored by many. I had recently made Mango Kulfi for my family using obviously the one and only “Fresh Alphonso Mangoes” which my whole family enjoyed. Well, I had only one cup of Mango Kulfi left which wasn’t enough for all of us and was wondering what I can make with it so the whole family would have something refreshing …that’s when “The Mast Mango Kulfi Milkshake” was created.

I used fresh Alphonso Mango pulp which I had hand squeezed, cause I didn’t want any mango to go to waste. Also, I used regular 2% milk, but you can use any milk of your choice. My Mango Kulfi that I made already had the touch of dry fruits, once everything was blend together it was divine. Rich, creamy, thick and sweet.  My kids are a great fan of cut mangoes, mango pulp, mango smoothie, mango milkshake, mango lassi. Through out the entire season of mango there is not one day that they do not …treat themselves on mangoes.

They are also one of the most expensive mangoes, but I believe its money well spent. Worth every penny ! Once again, I feel very luck and blessed that all these delicious Indian mangoes are available to me and my family. My husband and kids enjoy it through out the complete mango season.

“Alphonso mango is known as the “King of mango” because of its delicious tropically fruity sweet taste and juicy saffron/golden colored non-fibrous tender texture of its flesh. It has a significantly thinner more shiny skin”.
