About These Recipes

Both the recipes below for mango shake make delicious and creamy shakes. I often make them during the summers here in India as refreshing breakfasts, snacks, or for a light dessert. And while they have a terrifically yummy fresh flavor they are also loaded with nutrients, so are a healthier alternative to other sugary drinks.

(Along from this mango milkshake, Apple Milkshake and Banana Milkshake are also very popular drinks here. Give them a try!)

Below you’ll find easy recipes to prepare a mango milkshake one of two ways: as a traditional dairy milkshake or a vegan shake made with coconut milk. Both versions are vegetarian and feature juicy, ripe mangoes and not much else. Likewise, both mango shakes are great for a light yet filling drink that recharges your body.

Mangoes are often called the “king of fruits” because of their popularity. Give these mango milkshake recipes a try and you’ll see why they’re so loved!

2. Add 1.5 cups of whole milk. Milk can be chilled or at room temperature. You can add about 1 to 3 tablespoons of sugar at this point. The alphonso variety of mangoes I used were very sweet, so I did not add any sugar.

3. Add 2 to 3 ice cubes. Adding ice cubes is optional.

4. Blend till smooth. There should be no chunks of mangoes in the shake. This is a thick milkshake. For a slightly thinner milkshake, you can add more milk.

Check the taste. If the mango milkshake is not sweet, then add 1 to 3 tablespoons sugar and blend again so that the sugar dissolves.

Instead of sugar, choose to add 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or palm sugar, coconut sugar, brown sugar or jaggery.

5. Pour mango milkshake in glasses and serve immediately. If you prefer top the mango shake with some chopped nuts or whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream – like vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream.

Step-by-Step Guide

Vegan Mango Shake

1. Firstly rinse and then peel 2 medium-sized mangoes. Chop them and add in a mixer or blender jar. Also, add 1 pinch saffron strands. Including saffron is optional. I like the flavor combination of both saffron and mango.

It is not necessary to add any flavorings. But if you like, feel free to add vanilla extract, ground cinnamon or ground cardamom for additional flavors.

2. Add 2 cups of coconut milk (thick or lite). I have used coconut milk. You can prefer to add almond milk, oats milk, soy milk or cashew milk.

Add some water or ice cubes if you have used thick coconut milk like the way I have done as you see in the step below.

5. Pour in tall glasses and serve vegan mango milkshake immediately. While serving opt to garnish with chopped or sliced nuts like cashews, pistachios and almonds.

Do note that the thickness and color of your mango milkshake will vary with the type of mangoes. Alphonso mangoes give a thick and bright golden yellow color. Other variety of mangoes will give a juicy, pulpy and bright yellow to light yellow color in the shake.

Variations

These mango milkshake recipes are made by simply blending chopped ripe and sweet mangoes with dairy or plant-based milk. But there are several ways to customize your drink with different ingredients.

In addition to the basic ingredients listed in the full recipe below, there are many other ingredients you can include to change up the thickness and taste of the shakes.

  1. Cream – When you add some whipping cream to any shake you get an extra thick and creamy consistency. You can add about ¼ cup heavy cream together with the milk while blending. Whipped cream can also be added to top the milkshake before serving.
  2. Whole milk – Whole milk or full-fat milk gives the most rich tasting shake. However, feel free to add low fat or skimmed milk if you prefer.
  3. Nut milk – I like to make the vegan mango shake recipe with almond or coconut milk. But you can also use cashew milk or soy milk, or any plant-based milk alternative you like.
  4. Ice cream – While blending, adding a vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream will definitely make your mango shake thick, creamy and rich. Add 1 to 2 scoops of ice cream. Vanilla or mango ice cream are the best types of ice cream to include in this mango milkshake recipe.
  5. Ice cubes – To thin the milkshake considerably, add 6 to 7 ice cubes. You can even add less ice cubes. I always add 3 to 4 ice cubes while blending so that the milkshake is cold when I serve it.

Expert Tips

Mangoes

Be careful to choose mangoes that are ripe. Any variety of mango can be used, but I suggest avoiding the mangoes which are too much fibrous. Instead look for mangoes that are more juicy, sweet and easy to peel. The sweeter the mango, the less added sugar will be needed and therefore the healthier your shake will be.

I always prefer alphonso mangoes to make the milkshake. You may not get alphonso mango where you live – so just use any sweet variety of mango which has a sweet and smooth pulp. Also, do not use sour or semi-sweet mangoes as it can cause stomach aches. Sour mangoes may also curdle the milk.

Milk

As mentioned, you can use whole milk, low fat or skim milk, or vegan-friendly milk alternatives such as coconut milk or almond milk. Other plant-based milks like cashew milk, soy milk, or even oat milk are also tasty options.

Sweeteners

If you use mangoes which are very sweet, then you do not need to add any extra sugar or sweetener to the milkshake. If not quite sweet enough, feel free to add a bit of cane sugar or palm sugar, jaggery, maple syrup or honey while blending.

But taste the mango milkshake before adding sugar and only increase the amount of sweetness if really necessary. If possible it’s always a good idea to cut down on your sugar intake or use healthy alternatives.

Proportions

You can easily alter the proportion of mangoes and milk when making the shake. Add more mangoes to get a fruity, pulpy and thick shake with full-on flavors of mangoes. Add more milk to get a creamier, more milkshake-like flavor.

Flavorings

There is absolutely no need to add any more ingredients in these mango shake recipes. Mango flavor rules here and mango is the star in these recipes. However, for a drink that’s a bit extra special you can add a pinch of ground cardamom powder or cinnamon powder, saffron strands, or a dash of ground nutmeg or vanilla.

These can mostly be added while blending the shake or as a garnish on top of the prepared mango milkshake – but note that if you use cardamom powder this should be mixed with the mango pulp in the initial stage to ensure it mixes well into the shake.

Canned Mango Pulp

If fresh mangoes are not available, then the next best option is to use canned mango pulp. I often freeze mango pulp and use it later to make many recipes, including this milkshake.

That way we can have mango dishes even when they are not in season. In these mango shake recipes, you can add 1 to 1.25 cups of mango pulp in place of the fresh chopped mango.
