Make Your Summer A Celebration Of Taste, Health & Happiness

Summer is here. The jacarandas and tabebuias are in full bloom and the air is redolent with the smell of mangoes. Yes, the mercury levels may be rising and days getting longer, but there are few things as enjoyable as tucking into mangoes with your friends and family. Not only are they delicious, mangoes also carry a number of health benefits. They are rich in vitamins A, C, folate, magnesium and potassium making them an effective aid in digestion and good for hair, skin and heart health.

So, here are three mango recipes for the summer season that are high on taste & benefits and will keep you chill through the sweltering days ahead. 

 Mango Peda Shake

Ingredients (Serves 2-3) 

1 big ripe mango
4 pieces Anand Sweets Doodh Peda (add one or two more pieces if you prefer more sweetness)
2 cups milk
6-7 ice cubes
A pinch of cardamom powder


  • Peel and cut the mango into fine slices. Discard the stones
  • Dice the Anand Sweets Doodh Peda into small pieces by hand. Transfer them into a blender.
  • Pour 2 tbsp of milk along and blend the mixture to thick paste. 
  • Add the mango pieces and remaining milk into the blender. Add the ice cubes in as well. Blend well till all ingredients – including the ice cubes— mix into a fine thick shake.
