Mango Milk Shake - A refreshing summer drink

In North India, temperatures in summer can reach 110 and stay there for some time.  India has devised many chillers to stay cool like lassi, Thandai, shiquanji, cold coffee and other nut shakes with cardamom the Indian answer to vanilla.  So next time you want to reach out for a cola try one of India's exotic coolers.
If you are entertaining we suggest our canned Mango and Lychee syrup, from our store, for making a Lychee or Mango drinks or lassi.  They are tasty and convenient to make.

1cup peeled and chopped ripe mango or 1/2 cup mango pulp
sugar or to taste (less if pulp is used)
1/4th tsp. cardamom powder (optional)
Few ice-cubes
Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth in a blender.
Strain through a sieve, pushing as much liquid as possible.  If the pulp has been used there is no need to strain.
Pour in glasses and serve.

Cold Coffee Recipe-
Indian cold coffee is sweet and refreshing.  Use the Bru instant coffee with chicory and the hot coffee to the milk and ice to the coffee, allowing it to cascade through.
5 cups cold milk preferably whole
1/2 cup boiling water
6 tsp. instant coffee powder
3 tbsp. sugar crushed  ice 
Dissolve instant coffee powder and sugar in boiling water and allow to cool .
Blend the the coffee mixture and milk in a blender for few seconds.
Add cream and  crushed ice. Blend for another few seconds till it becomes frothy.
Serve chilled.

Nut Milk or Thandai Recipe
When North India is bristling under its hot summers and one is not inclined to cook or eat much families enjoy Thandai.  It is both a healthful and refreshing drink.  It is also popular for festive occasions and served while entertaining guests.  It is a popular drink at elaborate Indian weddings.
2 glasses of whole milk
1 cup water
1 tablespoon blanched almonds
1 tablespoon Pistachios
1 tablespoon Poppy Seeds
6 cashew nuts
Powdered cardamom, Cinnamon, Nutmeg- a pinch each
Honey as per taste
Bring the water to boil in a small sauce pan.  Add the spices.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
Make a fine paste of all the nuts and poppy seeds along with the heated spices.  Pour into a strainer lined with a damp cloth and set over a clean bowl.  Squeeze all the milk out of the nuts by tightening the cloth by wringing it.  You may use the nut pulp for thickening Indian curries or in baking.
Mix this paste with the other spices into the milk and stir well. Mix the honey and chill. Serve in glasses with crushed ice.

Mango Milk Shake Recipe
2 cup mango pulp from a can or flesh of 3 ripe mangoes
6 cups milk
3 Tbsp. sugar for canned mango pulp.  More sugar if fresh mangoes used.
10 crushed ice cubes
Blend all the ingredients in a blender. Serve cold.
The "mango nectar" that is widely available in American grocery stores does not have nearly enough mangoes per unit volume to make this drink.  Try the mango pulp from our store for best result

Lychee Juice - In our store we have a wonderful lychee drink syrup called Lychica Syrup.  It makes a refreshing lychee drink.

Mango Juice - We have ready made mango juice in our store.  If you prefer mango juice may also be made out of mango pulp available in our store.
