- You can take 3 to 4 Alphonso mangoes, peel it off and chop cubes. It will be nearly two to two and a half cups of alphonso mango cubes and mango chunks. As fresh, Mango always tastes better.
- For a toddler who means below two years they don’t like fibers in their mouth, please take a sieve and crush the pulp in it.
- If you don’t have fresh mangoes, you can order here with us. You can also choose frozen Mango, fresh or frozen, makes a bit different in the taste as I wouldn’t say I like Mango to be frozen. It changes the color of the pulp if it has frozen.
- If you are using fresh Mango, then you can add a frozen banana. It tastes fantastic.
- Two to three tablespoon of malai (fresh cream) and more health-conscious can be avoided if required.

- Yogurt base or greek yogurt half cup or yogurt milk or Dahi (Curd) nearly half a cup
- Half a tablespoon of rose water, or you can use Gulkand (Gulqand, rose petal jam)
- Grounded cardamom powder half teaspoon
- Add sugar or jaggery or Honey or Stevia or Palm sugar as per your taste and choice because generally, Alphonso mangoes are a sweet delight. Still, you can take nearly three to five tablespoon of sugar.
- For your toddlers, you can avoid this to add chopped cashew nuts, saffron strands, almonds (Badam), walnuts (akhrot), Anjeer (fig), and mint leaves for garnishing. But if your kid is a bit bigger, then they will like it.

Some special tips
- You can use canned mango pulp in place of ripe mangoes or even use homemade mango pulp.
- Mango Pulp is readily available in any Indian stores, or you can buy directly from here authentic G.I. tag certified Alphonso Mango Pulp.
- Use sweet yogurt or Greek yogurt or curd, which is less sour and thick if its consistency is thin and then reduces ice cubes.
- Add Saffron strands in one to two teaspoons of milk for some 5 to 10 mins before starting your recipe so that it will give more aroma of saffron.
- Try roasted almonds and cashew instead of everyday dry fruits, which should finely chop.
- Don’t refrigerate it for small toddlers; instead, serve them after cooling it.
- You can add sugar or honey or other sweeteners as per your choices, but since if the Alphonso Mango is ripe, then actually, I will not put any sweeteners like sugar.
As an option, you can add a pinch of Saunth (dried ginger, sountha) for taste as Mango lassi will make you feel heavy saunth (dried ginger, sountha) will help you digest.
