Mango milk is a delicious and refreshing summer drink you can make with fresh mangoes. It is technically a thinned down mango milkshake without ice cream 🙂 I saw this in the menu card of a cafe and was tempted to make at home. With just some fresh ripe mangoes, whole milk and flavoring of your choice you can make this delicious mango milk as dessert or after school snack!
I made this mango milk many times along with mango milkshake, mango ice cream, mango lemonade last month. Now that mangoes begin to disappear, I made this drink again yesterday as we like it a lot. This is much lighter and full of mango flavor compared to milkshake.
Flavored milks are best way to make kids drink milk. Rather than using store bought malt powders I prefer to make my own badam milk powder or masala milk powder at home.
Fresh seasonal fruits are also best way to sneak in some milk in kids diet. You can also make fresh strawberry milk during season.
Coming to this mango milk, it is an easy 3 step recipe. Chop the mangoes, blend with milk and sugar, serve 🙂 Yes that easy it is. Takes just 5 minutes to prepare yet very big on taste and flavor.

To make mango milk always use ripe and sweet mangoes. I have used banganappali mangoes here so the color is pale. If you use Alphonso mangoes the mango milk will be more deep in color and vibrant.
Compared to milkshake, this drink should be thin and more fluid. I like to use 1/2 cup chopped mangoes for 1.5 cups milk. You can slightly vary the proportion according to your preference though.
This mango milk is flavored with a wee bit of saffron extract. You can also use saffron strands or cardamom powder. Also I have just added few pistachios here.
Instead of sugar you can add honey, date syrup or coconut sugar too.
To make vegan mango milk you can use coconut or almond milk.
You can make this mango milk well ahead and serve chilled. It keeps well for 2 days in refrigerator.
