As much as my family loves milkshakes, we tend to stick to our favorite flavors like strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, cookies & cream, and peanut butter & banana. But as soon as I read the words "mango milkshake" I thought, "I love mangos in my licuados (smoothies), but why have I never thought to add them to a milkshake?!" These Mango Milkshakes were such a hit with my Hubby and kiddies, that I've already made them 5 or 6 times in the last 4 weeks. The first couple of times I followed Trisha's recipe to a tee using only vanilla ice cream. But after a visit to our local paleteria (popsicle/ice cream parlor) and seeing that they had mango ice cream, I forewent buying just a scoop and bought an entire liter to use just for mango milkshakes and that's all I've used ever since.
Once you try these Mango Milkshakes, I think you'll agree that they are sunshine in a glass.
(Recipe from My Hobbie Lobbie)
- 1-1/2 cups mango or vanilla ice cream
- 2 ripe mangos, peeled and cut in large pieces
- 2/3 cup milk
- Ground cinnamon or ground ginger (optional)
Puree the ice cream, chopped mango, and milk in a blender until smooth. Pour into a chilled glass. Sprinkle ground cinnamon or ground ginger on top, if desired. Enjoy!
