Can I use whole cardamom instead of cardamom powder?

Absolutely! Use one whole cardamom pod instead of the 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder. But, you want to blend the smoothie long enough to make sure the cardamom is well ground. Otherwise, you might end up with tiny pieces of cardamom in the milk.

Can I skip saffron?

We recommend not to! Saffron not only adds flavor but also deepens the yellow color of the mango milk drink.

Can I use honey or maple syrup instead of sugar for a healthier twist?

The flavor of regular sugar compliments the cardamom and saffron when compared to other sweeteners.


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!

Mango milk for dessert

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.

We love flavored milk varieties and I make many of them for my kid. We love badam milk, pistachio milk, saffron milk, cardamom milk and many more.

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.

Serve mango milk as dessert after a meal. It is also very good as after school snack with some cheese balls,  cutlet, sandwich or dosa pizza.

Easy mango milk

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.
