Aamras (Mango milkshake/Smoothie)

I thought my post on mango will not be complete if I didn't add a quick entry on Aamras. I had some left over mango pulp from my last week's Mango bread and made Aamras for our weekend lunch. So figured why not blog that as well though the recipe itself is very simple. Blend the pulp with a bit of milk, flavor with spices that you like (I use cardamom) and serve chilled. It was our weekend lunch which meant I could splurge a little on the calories. So I used heavy cream instead of milk to get a richer and creamier consistency. But feel free to use either or both in your recipe.

1 cup Mango pulp
1/4 cup milk or heavy cream
1 tsp cardamom powder
2 tbsp mixed nuts, coarsely chopped

  1. Blend all the ingredients (except nuts) in a blender or a food processor.
  2. Chill for a few hours.
  3. Garnish with chopped nuts before serving.
Serving Suggestions: Serve along with Rotis or as a dessert with fresh fruits or drink it straight up as a smoothie/shake.

Congratulations to Srivalli who is celebrating her three wonderful years of blogging with an event. This will be my entry to the "Thanda Mela" event.

Enjoy !!
