Did you ever try any power packed drink, particularly summer drink? Don’t worry, there is no electric power in this drink. Here is a special power packed mango smoothie drink. It is refreshing and one of my favorite summer drinks. But I think you still did not get a proper answer of the logic behind naming such power packed mango smoothie. Okay, let’s talk about this later. Now let’s talk about the smoothie. What is it actually?
Smoothie actually nothing but a thick drink made of fruit’s puree and milk, yogurt, ice cream etc. AND here this is made of sweet flavored mango and other ingredients. Here all other ingredients added with mango are honey, cashew nuts, peanuts, raisins and fresh cream (yes here milk, yogurt and ice cream are not used because the fresh cream is used). This is very rich and refreshing summer drink and with extra calorie. Taste of this power packed mango smoothie is SUPERRRR… DELICIOUS and SURPRISINGLY very easy to make at home.
Okay now, hopefully, you have realized why it is named as power packed mango smoothie. If not then I will not create any noise. AND let me answer this. Actually here so many dry fruits are added to make this mango smoothie. So you can call this as power packed mango smoothie. Did you ever try anything like this smoothie or any other smoothie? Many of you certainly have tried smoothies made of various fruits. But this one absolutely INCREDIBLE. Do not believe it then fine, nothing will happen, you will just miss a delicious super tasty power packed mango smoothie.
Many people also have the practice to drink a glass of juice or milkshake daily from juice corners. I can not make any comment on that whether it is a good practice or bad practice. Because once shopkeeper blends something with mixie with added sugar you will NEVER know what you are actually drinking. But Don’t panic because Not All juice shop owners cheat on their customers. A few will do such bad things. I knew a few numbers of excellent juice corners in Delhi which are so famous and every evening there was a long queue of customers who want to buy juice and milkshake from them. Some even often take packed juices for their friends and relatives too. So definitely those juice corners are maintaining quality and that is why so many people take juice from them.
You can even share your own story about juice corners at your locality too. Is there any? I hope definitely there will be many. Actually, nowadays people become more health conscious and they often try to keep such smoothies or juices in their daily diet. But if you make such drinks at home then at least you will know what you are consuming. AND not only that homemade smoothies and juice are less costly too.
So what is your story about summer drinks? All is GOOD? Then let talk about this POWER PACKED MANGO SMOOTHIE.
As I mentioned earlier, a lot of dry fruits are added to this drink to make it SUPER delicious. RED-YELLOW colored sweet and perfectly ripe mangoes are used to make this smoothie. BLEND all mangoes (Of course you have to peel its skin and remove seeds) and make a smooth puree, add some water if needed. Now add all ingredients (honey, cashew nuts, peanuts, raisins and fresh cream) and blend once again till everything blended properly with mango puree. Now add sufficient chilled water to make three to four glasses of power packed mango smoothie. You can add little more fresh cream or even add full cream milk. But in such case, you can not differentiate it with a milkshake. So add less quantity of fresh cream and avoid to add milk. BECAUSE fruit puree is the main ingredient for any smoothie. So do not spoil the actual take of fruit by adding extra ingredients.
