Some tips for making Mango Mastani:
Always use chilled mangoes and chilled milk for making this drink.
You can use skim milk for making mango mastani, but I would recommend full cream milk or at least 1.5% fat milk because it tastes richer and delicious.
Some people don’t like to add vanilla ice cream to this milkshake. So if you don’t want to add ice cream you can still make it richer by adding whipped cream.
I added some sugar to this milkshake, but if your mangoes are too sweet then you can omit sugar completely or reduce its amount to your liking.
You can also add few drops of rose water or kewra water to this milkshake.
You can replace vanilla ice cream with pistachio ice cream.
