Mango Shake 芒果雪克

While traveling throughout Southeast Asia, you will run across an abundance of fruit stands selling fruit shakes. HUGE mounds of fruit just waiting to be devoured through a straw. The options are abundant! Mangos, pineapples, bananas, dragon fruit, papaya, passion fruit, apples, kiwi, and the list just goes on and on.   They are perfect at any time of the day. I’ve had them for breakfast, as a midday snack, but also at 2am after the bars close their doors. I remember being in Cambodia and just sitting and watching how they make them and thinking, “Dang! That’s INSANELY easy.”  It’s just a combination of fruit, milk, ice, and sugar. If you have the fruit already cut up it takes less than a minute in the blender.

Mango was always my favorite and when getting back to Taiwan I knew I couldn’t live without them. Give it a shot and you’ll surely be feeling good after that sweet mango-y goodness hits your lips. It never hurts to add a splash of dark rum 🙂

第一次喝到芒果雪克應該是N年前的長灘島上,當每個毛細孔都在爆汗的時候,芒果雪克就跟佛祖一樣閃著金光下凡來救贖我的燥熱,一個豪飲火氣全消!如果想走成熟大人路線,加一咪咪萊姆酒,質感就立馬三級跳拉!

Serves- 2

Prep time- 5 minutes
Ready in- 10 minutes

  • 1 mango, peeled and roughly diced
  • 1 cup ice
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 1 tbls simple syrup

1. Place mango on a cutting board. Stand the mango its end, stem side down. Using a sharp knife, cut down on one side. Watch out for that pit in the middle! Do the same on the other side of the mango. Take each half, skin side down, and cut it lengthwise. Trim the mango of its skin. Cut mango into 1 inch cubes.

2. Add mango, milk, ice, and simple syrup in blender. Blend for 20 seconds or until desired smoothness.

3. Pour it up and enjoy!


兩人份的小酌

5 分鐘事前準備

10 分鐘準時上桌

  • 1顆芒果,剝皮後切塊(不需講求切得美觀)
  • 1 杯冰塊
  • ½ 杯全脂牛奶
  • 1 湯匙糖水

1. 直立芒果在沾板上,避開中間的芒果籽,在左右各3分之1處縱向切下。手捧切下的左右各半(果皮面朝下),在果肉上縱向畫幾刀後剝除果皮。將細長的芒果肉再切成約2.5公分寬高的塊狀。

2. 攪拌機中放入芒果、牛奶、冰塊及糖水,攪拌約20秒鐘左右,或直到你覺得質地夠順就ok。

3. 倒入杯中美美的享受吧!
