Prep Time: Under 15 min
Serves: 2 people
3 small ripe mangoes (or use 1 large mango. See Note below)
1/4-1/2 tsp cardamom powder (start less and increase as per taste)
2 tbsp sugar (depends on the sweetness of mangoes)
1 cup milk (fat free/low fat also works)
1 dollop of vanilla ice cream (optional)
Note: You can use frozen mangoes for this recipe. You can vary the amount of mangoes/puree depending on how strong you prefer the taste of mangoes in your milk shake. Canned Mango puree will also work. Just make sure to add sugar only after tasting since canned mango purees already have sugar added to them.
1. Peel the mangoes (if using fresh) and add the pulp to a blender.
2. Add the milk and cardamom powder. Start with the minimum - since some may find the flavor of cardamom too overpowering. You can skip using it too.
3. Blend it well until frothy along with ice cubes. Taste and add sugar if needed and give it another whirl if adding.
4. Pour into glasses, top with ice cream (which I didn't have on hand sadly!) and enjoy.
