A twist on the classic vintage diner recipe, 10 minutes and four simple ingredients are all it takes to whip up this delicious mango shake. It can be made with fresh or frozen fruit chunks and is easily customized for sweetness and non-dairy ingredients.

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups diced peeled mango (1 medium-large)
  • 1 cup vanilla ice cream
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup ice cubes


  1. Place the ice cream, mango chunks (reserve a little for serving) and vanilla in a blender jar.
  2. Process until you get a thick, creamy mixture.
  3. Add half of the ice cubes and 2 cups of milk.
  4. Put the lid on the blender with a lid and blend at medium speed for 2-3 minutes, until frothy and smooth. Check consistency and add more milk if needed. You should have a creamy milkshake, similar in consistency to a thick mango smoothie.
  5. Serve immediately with the reserved mango pieces or extra mango slices. For a dessert-like presentation, add whipped cream and caramel syrup on top. 
  6. This mango drink is meant to be consumed cold, not at room temperature. 


  • Organization: read the recipe first and ensure you have ingredients at the correct temperature, equipment, and enough workspace. This will make the process so much easier.

  • Almond milk: substitute for the regular milk in the recipe.
  • Ice cream: use a different flavor like cream, passionfruit, orange or caramel ice cream. The flavor will vary, so test on a small amount. 
  • Non-dairy or vegan milkshake: use plant-based milk, like almond or coconut milk and non-dairy ice cream.
