Mango Juice is one of the easiest fruit drinks you can make at home. It is extracted from sweet ripe mangoes mixed with ice cubes for a refreshing and healthy taste.
My first work on mango juice was inspired by plenty of mangoes in my store. During one
of the mango seasons, my granny will always send a large bag full of yellow skin mangoes to my house.
It was never her concern if I could finish it or not as she kept sending more. l thought of becoming a mango vendor but an idea popped into my head to make juice extract from the mangoes and share it with friends.
So I set to work and the result was great. Till today, my friends will always request my natural mango juice once it’s mango season.
So if you are in surplus of mangoes, please do not throw them away all you need to do is to set up your blender, mix up and gulp down the juice one time!

Adding milk to mangoes is a common question with no definitive answer. Some people say that it enhances the flavor of the mango, while others say that it ruins the flavor.
There are many factors to consider when adding milk to mangoes, such as the ripeness of the fruit and the type of milk used.
The consensus seems to be that adding milk to ripe mangos is acceptable, but adding milk to unripe mangos can make them sour.
If you’re looking to add some extra creaminess, then using whole milk or cream will work better than using skim milk or non-fat yogurt.
