Summer season is all about mangoes and smoothies.
Summers are here and how – and we simply can’t stop thinking about the quintessential summer treat, the king of fruits, mango! Think of summers and each one of us must have a memory of enjoying these luscious mango – mine is relishing mango slices in the afternoons all through my childhood. The sweet, bright yellow and luscious mangoes are not just irresistibly delicious but super versatile too! From salads to custards and pickles to chutneys, there are so many scrumptious ways one can relish the juicy goodness.
Just like an Indian kitchen is incomplete without a jar of aam ka achaar and aam ki chutney in summers, our childhood was mostly about mango shake in the evenings. Let’s just agree how a glass full of mango shake is one of the simple pleasures of life. And while the classic shake can never lose on that, smoothie stands right next to it with a mix of seasonal fruits and veggies promising an instant burst of energy besides quenching our thirst in the scorching summer heat.
