Here i am with my Sweet Luscious Mango, Nectarine and Strawberry Milk Shake.. Its all about summer with this healthy fresh fruits drink.. The strong flavor of Mango and Strawberry compliments well with the subtle flavors of Nectarine. This milkshake is definitely a refreshing and cool thirst quencher during these hot summers with added bonus of Minerals and Vitamins. You could make this irresistible milk shake a little ahead and wow your guests asking for more!!! An easy breezy delicious smoothie is just a Whip away!!! The farmers market was bursting with local grown fresh Mangoes, Nectarines and Strawberries, and i am sure i couldn't get any fresher than there.




Mangoes.., we miss Indian Mangoes so much after coming here,, my uncle( mama ) used to bring a whole basket( Mamidikaya Buttalu ) of tree ripened Banginapalli mangoes from Ulavapadu and my Moms sister( Pinni ) used to send us sweet and juicy Mangoes from Vijayawada( Rasalu )... Hmmm we miss all that luxury here.... Luckily one day i was able to find mangoes that were a little bit similar to those Banginapalli mangoes with very less pulp in the farmers market . We relished some fresh chopped mango after our dinner one day and the other day used the rest for this smoothie.. That was the only first and last time i could find those delicious mangoes , all others were either not sweet or with lots of pulp... Somehow i like Nectarines far better than Peach, so whenever i could find firm and fresh nectarines i couldn't stop myself grabbing some home. I found this Fresh Fruit Smoothie a wonderful way of having whole fruits with added calcium from Milk...


You need:

  • 1/2 cup of fresh sweet ripened mango( less pulp ones ) cut into chunks( even Alphonso Mango pulp would taste really good )
  • 3 fresh ripened strawberries quartered
  • 1/2 peach chopped into cubes
  • 2 cups milk( any milk would work but i use 2% reduced fat milk )
  • Sugar to taste
  • 4-5 ice cubes


Method Of Preparation:
  • Blend mango cubes( or Mango pulp/juice ) , strawberries, Nectarine and sugar along with half of the milk for 10-15 seconds
  • Now add the remaining milk and ice and blend it well until its frothy..
Note:
If you don't mind some extra calories, go ahead and add a scoop of HaagenDaz frozen Vanilla Yogurt,( i haven't added this time for this milk shake though!! ) to make it even creamier and lip smacking... I am sure this would be a definite hit with kids at home!
