This mango milkshake screams summer

As soon as it starts warming up my mind goes straight to mangoes. They are the king of fruit in my opinion, and they reign over Pakistan all summer long. I’ve tried local mangoes here in Chicago, but nothing beats Pakistani mangoes, and my favorite type happens to be Anwar Atol. The tiny variety of mangoes that is so delicate you never dare to blend it up in a milkshake. Alas, we’re still a couple months away from mango season, and I’m on the other side of the world, so I made this mango milkshake to drown my sorrows, and it successfully drowned them away.

This is the creamiest milkshake

The trick is to add decadence in other forms. If I can’t use Pakistani mangoes, I’ll use the next best thing. You wanna know what it is, don’t you? Besides using a good mango pulp, my trick is to add just a tiny bit of cream cheese! It adds a light tart flavor and balances out the sweet mango pulp, imitating the natural balance in Pakistani mangoes. You can skip the cream cheese and you’ll still be left with a delicious milk shake, but if you want that decadence, add it in. I use mango pulp that has no sugar added to it. Unsweetened mango pulp has better flavor. Use a brand of Pakistani or Indian origin when it comes to mangoes. The flavor is unmatched. You confined them at any Indian/Pakistani grocery store, or in the International aisle of your local grocery store.

The mango. I like a strong mango flavor so I add 3/4 cup of mango pulp to my milkshake, but if you like a more subtle flavor add just 1/2 cup.
Ingredients. I love using mango pulp for this. I have only used fresh mangoes to make this using Pakistani mangoes. If you can get your hands on them use the same amount of fresh mangoes as the amount of puree listed above.  
The sugar. I like using icing sugar instead of sugar because it dissolves easily. 
The cream cheese. I know it’s an odd ingredient for a milkshake but it adds amazing depth of flavor. You can leave it out if you don’t have it. 
The milk. I’ve used 2% and whole milk for this. They both work great.
