A refreshing Indian summer drink - This is a delicious, refreshing and easy-to-make drink for hot summer days.
- 1 lb mango pulp (see note)
- 6 c milk, whole
- 3 tablespoon sugar
- 12 ice cubes
Put into a blender about half (to one third) of the mango pulp, about 3 cups milk, about 1 1/2 T sugar and 6 ice cubes into the blender.
Blend until smooth.
Repeat quickly, as people will already be asking for more.
Canned mango pulp is available in Indian and Latin American grocery stores.
The "mango nectar" that is widely available in American grocery stores does not have nearly enough mangoes per unit volume to make this drink.
If you are lucky enough to be able to get fresh mangoes, you can use the flesh of one ripe mango for about 1 cup of the mango pulp; if you do that, increase the amount of sugar to about 2 tablespoon per batch, as canned mango pulp always has added sugar.
You can make interesting variations on this recipe by using plain yogurt for some or all of the milk, and by adding a tart counterbalance to the mangoes, such as shredded kiwi fruit.
