Mango Smoothie / ಮಾವಿನಹಣ್ಣಿನ ಸ್ಮೂತಿ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Mango is one of the fruits which is liked by most of the people. This is the season of mangoes here in India, and we are making the fullest use of the season this year! Apart from the mangoes we buy from nearby fruit stalls and supermarkets in our area, my hubby visited 'Mango Mela' this time and he bought varieties of mangoes from there. Simply we ate mangoes like anything! Also, I prepared Mango Seekarane, juice, milkshake, etc. almost regularly.
Usually, I prepare milkshake from mango, and Smoothie was very new to me. Sometime back, I had seen Smoothie preparation in a TV cookery show and got inspired by them! Here is my version of smoothie, with slight variations in the original recipe..
 
 
Preparation time: 10 - 15 minutes
Cooling time: 1 hour
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
1 large mango - fully ripen 
Thick curd - 200 ml
Milk - 50 ml (See Tips)
Water - 50 to 100 ml
Sugar - 8 to 10 tsp (adjust according to taste)
Pinch of salt

Method:
Peel and de-seed the mango, and chop it finely. Keep 1/4th portion of the chopped mango separately for decoration.
Take the remaining 3/4th portion of chopped mango, blend it into smooth paste along with curd and sugar.
To this, add milk, pinch of salt and little water to adjust the consistency. Blend the smoothie for another 20 - 25 seconds. Check and adjust the taste.
Transfer the smoothie to a bowl and refrigerate it for atleast one hour.
Spread one layer of chopped mango on the bottom of serving glass. Slowly, pour the smoothie and fill it till 3/4th of the glass.
Top it with one layer of chopped mango. That's all, delicious Smoothie is ready to serve!


Tips:
  • Mango Smoothie can also be prepared without adding milk. If the curd is sour in taste, addition of milk will help to reduce the sourness.
  • If you use refrigerated mango and curd for preparing the Smoothie, it can be served instantly, i.e., without cooling!
