Delicious Mango Shake

Mangoes are truly one of the most awesome fruits around. It’s not surprising that they are often referred to as the “king of fruits.” Not only are they wonderfully delicious, but they are loaded with nutrition. They are also incredibly versatile.

I purchase a huge bag of frozen mangoes from Costco because we go through them so quickly. I like to add to mango yogurt, kale mango smoothie, mango popsicles, and mango quinoa salad.

Currently, we are especially obsessed with this coconut mango pudding.

They are also the star of this creamy shake. The sweet and creamy flavors of ripe mangoes, milk, and cashews blend together in perfect harmony!

Feel free to customize to your liking by adding various flavorings and add-ins as I mention here.

Ingredients

Milk, cashews, and mangoes on a white background.
  • Sweet mangoes – I recommend using frozen mangoes for this shake. If you only have fresh mangoes, cut into cubes and place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Milk – you truly can use whatever milk you wish. If using dairy, I highly recommend going for whole milk. Or add your favorite plant-based milk, like almond or oat milk. I especially like canned coconut milk for extra creaminess and the unique flavor.
  • Cashews – This may seem like an odd ingredient for a milkshake BUT trust me on this one! They not only add extra creaminess but also boost protein and fat, making the drink more filling. And here are more weight gain foods for babies and toddlers if your child is struggling to gain weight.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Add all the ingredients into a high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth. Enjoy immediately.

Variations

  • Add additional flavorings, such as ground cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom powder, and vanilla extract.
  • Add frozen banana or other fruits, like strawberries and peaches
  • For a more decadent shake, add a scoop of regular vanilla ice cream, mango ice cream or whipped cream.

Tips for Success

  • If you prefer a thick shake, be sure to use frozen mangoes.
  • If you desire a thinner shake, add more milk.
  • Not sweet enough? You can add some honey, maple syrup, or 2-3 dates and pulse again until combined.

Serving Suggestions

Shake in a large and small glass jars with toddler's hand wrapped around one.

Enjoy this refreshing drink as a quick and easy toddler snack, breakfast, or lunch.

You can even pour into popsicle molds and enjoy as a creamy frozen treat!

Equipment

Using a high-powered blender makes ALL the difference when making creamy milkshakes.

I’ve had my Vitamix for 7+ years and it’s worth every penny! I use it to make all my blender muffinsdips/sauces, smoothiesveggie nuggetspancakes, I can go on and on.it’s hands down my number one workhorse.

And if you’re looking for the perfect straw drinking cup for your toddler to slurp their cold smoothies and drinks in, check out this cup that comes with a silicone cover for grip and to prevent breakage.

It can also double as a storage jar for overnight oats, chia puddings, etc.

Storage

Refrigerate

It is best to enjoy this creamy mango shake immediately. However, if you’d like to make ahead or you have extra, you can store in a container (I love this jar) with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate for up to 2 days.

The shake will separate over time so give it a good shake before enjoying.

Freeze

You can also freeze any leftovers into popsicle mold or in an ice cube tray (I love this silicone tray).

Enjoy as a frozen treat or add the frozen cubes to smoothies or oatmeal! Not only will the cube(s) melt quickly, it will help cool down the oatmeal so you can serve to your baby immediately.

.You can also turn them into popsicles! These popsicle molds are perfect for little hands.
