The one where Mangoes are blended two ways

The mango season has come and gone. It is nearly the end, yet you would not have come across any mango recipes in my blog. I have not blogged any recipes with mango. What have I been doing all these days, u may ask. The answer is I have been enjoying each and every day of the season eating tons of fresh mangoes. No diluting the flavor with milk/cream/flour. Just fresh cut mangoes.

Alphonso, neelam, banganapalli - any type of mangoes jumped into my grocery bag in kgs... of course with my aid. Mr.A has been pleading with me to make something else to the regular cut fruits and I have been ignoring his offer as I am a die-hard fan of mangoes especially fresh. I prefer to relish the fruit as such... Only did I come back to normal senses when yesterday the grocer uttered the words "The mangoes are not of good quality,amma. The fresh stock will take time to come... Season mudiyudula ma... ( Season is coming to end dear)." Oh dear, I haven't made anything different with the King of fruits... What an idiot...

Ever since I have been jotting down ideas on what to make... here and there. Fresh breads, milkshakes, smoothies, mousses, jams, granitas, coolers, preserves... Oh the list is endless and I am not sure if I can achieve my heart's target within the end of the season. If not, my ideas would be carried over to the next season...

So for the first step, it is mangoes blended in two ways... A milkshake and a lassi... Perfect chillers. The milkshake we had for breakfast with some scrambled eggs and the lassi we had for dinner with macaroni.


Mango Milkshake
---------------------------
~*What U Need*~
Ripe mangoes(Alphonso) - 2
Sugar - 2 tbsps

Milk - 1 1/2 cups

Water - 1/2 cup

Mango Ice cream - 1 cup (optional)

Ice cubes - 10


How I Made it:

Blend all the above ingredients together. Serve chilled topped with a dollop of mango ice-cream

Notes:
* If you are mangoes are too sweet, then alter the sugar as needed.
* Adding ice-cream definitely alters the taste. It gives a unique creaminess.
* If you feel that the shake is in a puree consistency then add water/milk and blend together


Mango Lassi / Mango Yogurt-Smoothie
--------------------------------------------------------
~*What U Need*~
Ripe mangoes(Alphonso) - 2
Sugar - 2 tbsps

Chilled Yogurt - 1 1/2 cups

Water - 1/2 cup




How I Made it:

Blend all the above ingredients together. Serve chilled in a tall glass. Garnish with chopped mangoes

Verdict: It is mangoes and just a matter of seconds... What else do you need to make this...
