This drink is especially delicious and refreshing when fresh mangoes are in season, but a tasty alternative can easily be made using mango pulp from a tin, which is readily available throughout the year in Asian grocery shops.

For how many? Serves 4


  • 2 ripe mangoes, or 300ml mango pulp
  • 280ml buttermilk
  • 10 ice cubes
  • 300ml milk
  • 2 tbsp plain yoghurt
  • 2 tsp caster sugar


If you’re using whole mangoes, remove the skin and the stone.

Put all the ingredients into a blender and mix together for about 2 minutes, until smooth. 

Serve immediately in a tall glass.
