About This Recipe

Mango juice is the most common and loved fruit juice during summers. It is prepared by blending sweet ripe mangoes with or without any sweetener and water.

During mango season I make fresh mango juice very frequently. We have a steady supply of organic sweet alphonso mangoes and it is the best one to juice. The flavor and taste of these organic mangoes are so good, just like what a real fruit will have 🙂

I prefer ripe sweet mangoes with less fiber like alphonso, kesar mangoes for juice. Fruit with less fiber yields more pulp and juice. Also with sweet fruit you can add very less sugar while juicing.

I make this mango juice in many ways varying the ingredients. While I am sharing the detailed recipe for a basic juice, I have mentioned some variations and flavor combinations you can try.

The taste and flavor of this mango juice will vary with the type of mangoes used, add-ins you use. If you are looking for clean refreshing drink to stay hydrated this summer, do try this homemade mango juice. It is

Ingredients & Substitutes

Ingredients you need for mango juice are fairly simple. You need just ripe sweet mangoes and water. Yes even sugar is optional here but I do add a bit to bring out the flavor of mangoes.

Mango when blended yields a  thick pulp that you should dilute well before serving as juice. While the most common choice is water, you can also use various ingredient and vary the taste and flavor.

Few options that you can add instead of water are

  • Orange juice– I often throw segments of peeled oranges along with mangoes for a wonderful aroma. It is also good for some vitamin c fix.
  • Coconut water– One of the best choices during summer, if you want to stay hydrated and nourished. Just use as much as required instead of water.
  • Pineapple juice–  A tropical delight that bursts with flavor, our personal favorite. Use 3-4 slices of peeled pineapples. However you will have to add some water to dilute this juice again.
  • Carbonated water or soda– To make fizzy welcome drink you can use soda instead of plain water for making this juice.
  • Carrot juice- This is a very good combination for building immunity too.

Sometime I make mango juice with flavoring like cardamom, ginger, basil leaves or throw in some mint leaves, basil leaves or fresh ginger for flavors. You can also add lemon juice to round off the flavors and this mango mojito tastes excellent too.

Some Variations And Tips

  • This recipe yields moderately thick juice and very similar to slice or frooti. You can however add more water to make diluted juice. Also you can reduce the water further to make thicker juice with more mango flavor.
  • I do not prefer to add ginger powder or cardamom powder to flavor the juice. It simply masks the flavor of mango. If you prefer I suggest you add a dash of lemon or lime juice to round the flavors.
  • You can prepare the juice ahead of time and chill it in the fridge. Also you can serve with more ice cubes.
  • Finally as with any mango recipe use ripe fruit with smooth and firm pulp. Avoid fibrous ones.
  • You can also make this juice without water but it will be more thick and puree just like aamras.
