What is the best thing that you like about summers? Is it the long days, vacations or beaches? For me summer season, brings only one favourite – Mango, the ‘king of fruits’ across India.
The scorching heat of the summer season is welcomed and enjoyed with the delicious mango drinks. I love to stick an umbrella in the ice-cold mango drink with a few slices to sip away into the tropics.
Mangoes are rich in Fiber,Antioxidants, Vitamin A and C. Mango Orange Smoothie is my crush this summer and I usually do this with ready-made mango drink, Slice.
Here is that simple recipe for you to try.
1/4 cup chilled orange pulp
1/2 cup chilled ready-made mango juice ( Tropicana Slice Alphonso)
2 tbsp sugar
6 tbsp chilled fresh curd
A cup of vanilla ice-cream
2 tbsp crushed ice for serving
Mint leaves for serving
Blend by combining the first five ingredients in a juicer mixer till it is smooth. Pour equal quantities into two glasses. Add crushed ice into the 2 individual glasses and decorate it with umbrella stick and few mint leaves. Serve immediately.
I am a mango lover in its true sense. If you are a Keralite, your answer will be the same too because we can never hate mangoes. People who love mangoes will have their childhood memories associated with it. We had a mango farm in the backyard of our school which was far behind the playground. During our Physical Training sessions we used to bunk the classes and go to the mango farm. We throw stones aiming at the tree to get the mangoes down. We used to steal mangoes from our neighborhood houses and we even used to conduct competition amongst our friends circle to see who has plucked the most number of mangoes in a day. We used to climb the mango trees and pose for photographs. We even used to spend an hour or so sitting in its trunk.My mango-memory dates back to the days of collecting the storm-felled and squirrel eaten ripe mangoes beneath the giant and sprawling mango tree standing beside my house. The memories of those wonderful sunny days with juicy mangoes are evergreen. Crushed pieces of raw mango mixed with salt and chilly powder is equally mouthwatering.
As I started travelling to different places in our country I got introduced to the various varieties of mango fruit like Ratna, Dussheri, Langra, Totapuri, Alphonso, Kesar, Banganapalli, Payari, Fazli, Chausa, Malgova and others. I tasted these exotic flavours and came to know that each of them had a distinct taste.
The Alphonso mango is available during the months of April to June and is known as King of Mangoes. The Alphonso Mango is seasonal and considered to be among the most superior qualities of mango. It is believed that Alphonso mango came to India through Goa along with Alfonso De Albuquerque, the Portuguese explorer and from there it travelled to different places like Ratnagiri, Konkan region and southern side of India as well. Ratnagiri is the home to these mangoes. You can call this place a paradise or mango heaven.
That bring said, I was sad that I am unable to visit Ratnagiri to pick the king of mangoes. It seems like Tropicana Slice has answered my prayers. Happy days are here again because Tropicana Slice has brought Alphonso Manges from Ratnagiri to your Doorsteps with the lauch of all new Tropicana Slice Alphonso.
