Mango Milkshake Recipe (with Step by Step Photos)
Mango Shake (Mango Milkshake) is a cool and tempting fruit drink prepared by simply blending ripe mango pieces, milk and sugar. To keep things simple and easy, this recipe primarily explains how to make mango shake with milk. However, for those who are looking for something different, there are few tips and serving ideas mentioned below which can simply make it a divine experience in every sip.
Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2 serving
|2 large Ripe Mangoes(approx. 2 cups chopped mango)|
|1½ cups Milk|
|1½ tablespoons Sugar(or to taste)|
|2-3 Ice Cubes, optional|
- Wash, peel and chop mangoes into small pieces, discard stone. Transfer them to a blender jar.
- Add milk, sugar (to taste or according to sweetness of mango) and ice-cubes.
- Blend until smooth and creamy and there are no mango chunks in it. Pour prepared shake into serving glasses, garnish with almonds and scoop of ice cream and serve.
Tips and Variations:
- For thick shake, keep chopped mango pieces in freezer for 20 minutes and don’t add ice-cubes.
- Add less milk for thick shake and add more milk for thin shake.
- Top it up with 1 large scoop of vanilla ice cream and few cashew nuts for mango shake with ice cream experience.
- Use top quality mango which has lot of flavor and less fibers for smoother shake. We recommend using alphonso for best experience.
- If fresh mangoes are not available, use readymade mango pulp or frozen mango cubes which are easily available in Indian Stores.
Taste: Sweet and smooth
Serving Ideas: It is such a delicious drink on its own that it rarely requires any add on. However, topping it with vanilla ice cream or addition of chilled mango cubes makes it simply irresistible. Or even better, simply mix some cashew nuts in it after blending for an out of the world chewy experience. It is a perfect drink to beat the summer heat and enjoy the best of the best mangoes.
Mango Shake (2 Ways)
A sweet and refreshing mango shake is the perfect drink to enjoy when mangos are in their peak of the season. Here I share two equally easy and delicious recipes (with step-by-step instructions and photos + video) for making rich and creamy mango milkshakes – one with dairy and a vegan version made with coconut milk.
About These Recipes
Both the recipes below for mango shake make delicious and creamy shakes. I often make them during the summers here in India as refreshing breakfasts, snacks, or for a light dessert. And while they have a terrifically yummy fresh flavor they are also loaded with nutrients, so are a healthier alternative to other sugary drinks.
(Along from this mango milkshake, Apple Milkshake and Banana Milkshake are also very popular drinks here. Give them a try!)
Below you’ll find easy recipes to prepare a mango milkshake one of two ways: as a traditional dairy milkshake or a vegan shake made with coconut milk. Both versions are vegetarian and feature juicy, ripe mangoes and not much else. Likewise, both mango shakes are great for a light yet filling drink that recharges your body.
Mangoes are often called the “king of fruits” because of their popularity. Give these mango milkshake recipes a try and you’ll see why they’re so loved!
Mango Milkshake Recipe
1. Rinse and pat dry 2 medium-sized mangoes that are ripe and sweet. Peel and chop them. Discard the stones. Add chopped mangoes in a blender jar.
2. Add 1.5 cups of whole milk. Milk can be chilled or at room temperature. You can add about 1 to 3 tablespoons of sugar at this point. The alphonso variety of mangoes I used were very sweet, so I did not add any sugar.
3. Add 2 to 3 ice cubes. Adding ice cubes is optional.
4. Blend till smooth. There should be no chunks of mangoes in the shake. This is a thick milkshake. For a slightly thinner milkshake, you can add more milk.
Check the taste. If the mango milkshake is not sweet, then add 1 to 3 tablespoons sugar and blend again so that the sugar dissolves.
Instead of sugar, choose to add 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or palm sugar, coconut sugar, brown sugar or jaggery.
5. Pour mango milkshake in glasses and serve immediately. If you prefer top the mango shake with some chopped nuts or whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream – like vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream.
Vegan Mango Shake
1. Firstly rinse and then peel 2 medium-sized mangoes. Chop them and add in a mixer or blender jar. Also, add 1 pinch saffron strands. Including saffron is optional. I like the flavor combination of both saffron and mango.
It is not necessary to add any flavorings. But if you like, feel free to add vanilla extract, ground cinnamon or ground cardamom for additional flavors.
2. Add 2 cups of coconut milk (thick or lite). I have used coconut milk. You can prefer to add almond milk, oats milk, soy milk or cashew milk.
Add some water or ice cubes if you have used thick coconut milk like the way I have done as you see in the step below.
3. Add 3 to 4 ice cubes. You can also add some sugar or any sweetener of your choice if you prefer.
4. Blend until smooth. If you find the milkshake too thick, add some water and blend again.
5. Pour in tall glasses and serve vegan mango milkshake immediately. While serving opt to garnish with chopped or sliced nuts like cashews, pistachios and almonds.
Do note that the thickness and color of your mango milkshake will vary with the type of mangoes. Alphonso mangoes give a thick and bright golden yellow color. Other variety of mangoes will give a juicy, pulpy and bright yellow to light yellow color in the shake.
These mango milkshake recipes are made by simply blending chopped ripe and sweet mangoes with dairy or plant-based milk. But there are several ways to customize your drink with different ingredients.
In addition to the basic ingredients listed in the full recipe below, there are many other ingredients you can include to change up the thickness and taste of the shakes.
- Cream – When you add some whipping cream to any shake you get an extra thick and creamy consistency. You can add about ¼ cup heavy cream together with the milk while blending. Whipped cream can also be added to top the milkshake before serving.
- Whole milk – Whole milk or full-fat milk gives the most rich tasting shake. However, feel free to add low fat or skimmed milk if you prefer.
- Nut milk – I like to make the vegan mango shake recipe with almond or coconut milk. But you can also use cashew milk or soy milk, or any plant-based milk alternative you like.
- Ice cream – While blending, adding a vanilla ice cream or mango ice cream will definitely make your mango shake thick, creamy and rich. Add 1 to 2 scoops of ice cream. Vanilla or mango ice cream are the best types of ice cream to include in this mango milkshake recipe.
- Ice cubes – To thin the milkshake considerably, add 6 to 7 ice cubes. You can even add less ice cubes. I always add 3 to 4 ice cubes while blending so that the milkshake is cold when I serve it.
Be careful to choose mangoes that are ripe. Any variety of mango can be used, but I suggest avoiding the mangoes which are too much fibrous. Instead look for mangoes that are more juicy, sweet and easy to peel. The sweeter the mango, the less added sugar will be needed and therefore the healthier your shake will be.
I always prefer alphonso mangoes to make the milkshake. You may not get alphonso mango where you live – so just use any sweet variety of mango which has a sweet and smooth pulp. Also, do not use sour or semi-sweet mangoes as it can cause stomach aches. Sour mangoes may also curdle the milk.
As mentioned, you can use whole milk, low fat or skim milk, or vegan-friendly milk alternatives such as coconut milk or almond milk. Other plant-based milks like cashew milk, soy milk, or even oat milk are also tasty options.
If you use mangoes which are very sweet, then you do not need to add any extra sugar or sweetener to the milkshake. If not quite sweet enough, feel free to add a bit of cane sugar or palm sugar, jaggery, maple syrup or honey while blending.
But taste the mango milkshake before adding sugar and only increase the amount of sweetness if really necessary. If possible it’s always a good idea to cut down on your sugar intake or use healthy alternatives.
You can easily alter the proportion of mangoes and milk when making the shake. Add more mangoes to get a fruity, pulpy and thick shake with full-on flavors of mangoes. Add more milk to get a creamier, more milkshake-like flavor.
There is absolutely no need to add any more ingredients in these mango shake recipes. Mango flavor rules here and mango is the star in these recipes. However, for a drink that’s a bit extra special you can add a pinch of ground cardamom powder or cinnamon powder, saffron strands, or a dash of ground nutmeg or vanilla.
These can mostly be added while blending the shake or as a garnish on top of the prepared mango milkshake – but note that if you use cardamom powder this should be mixed with the mango pulp in the initial stage to ensure it mixes well into the shake.
Canned Mango Pulp
If fresh mangoes are not available, then the next best option is to use canned mango pulp. I often freeze mango pulp and use it later to make many recipes, including this milkshake.

STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL
Follow this step-by-step photo tutorial, then scroll down to the recipe card for the full ingredients list and method.
Peel ripe and fresh mangoes and chop into medium-sized pieces making sure to avoid the fibrous center. Or use store bought mango chunks.
Add the mango chunks to a high-speed blender along with the milk, ice and sugar (if using).
Blend until the mango shake is completely smooth with no unblended chunks.
Pour into glasses and serve cold with a straw or spoon!
- The mangoes make this milkshake sweet naturally. Taste the milkshake before adding any sugar to make sure it’s at your desired level of sweet. Sweetness will depend on the seasonality and ripeness of your fruit.
- If you use frozen mango, you’ll just need the mango and milk as they’re usually frozen when very ripe so will be sweet enough without any sugar.
- You can’t make this too far ahead as it could discolour slightly as the fruit oxidizes.
- If using frozen mango for your smoothie, be sure to use a high-speed blender and pulse to break down the shake before blending until smooth. This will help avoid chunks.
- Additionally, if you are using frozen mango you may not need to add ice to this shake.
- To make this a super thick milkshake with mango, you can add half a banana or a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.
