Mango Milkshakes

Sunshine and very warm temperatures...that is the outlook for today!  What could be better than a mango milkshake on the front porch?  And the mangoes are almost a steal at our local grocery store this week.  We took a liking to mango milkshakes when we were in Kenya earlier this year.  Now we are enjoying them at home.


  • 1 ripe mango...peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice-cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Place all ingredients in a blender...and blend until smooth. 
  2. Pour into two glasses. (Everything tastes better when shared with a friend!)

    3. My daughters girl scout troop are working on their cooking badge and we turned our fruit smoothies healthy by using vanilla yogurt! but ice cream does sound yummmy too! and the girls who tried mangos for the first time LOVED them!

    6. Lorrie...you test for ripeness of a mango by touch. They should yield when gently pressed. Colour is not really an indicator...since some varieties are totally green when ripe.

    8. These look great! Do you think they would be just as tasty if I replaced the ice cream with Greek yogurt? I know it wouldn't be a "milk shake" per se, but maybe more of a smoothie?

    9. Sounds delicious ladies. Growing up in Paraguay as a Mennonite, we had so many Mangoes and never turned them into smoothies.

      Sound delicious and looks simple enough. I'll have to try some soon!
