I worked as a banker for 17 years. Now I am working as a freelancer for indexing. I love cooking tasty, healthy meals, and staying fit.

Before You Get Started

We get plenty of mangoes in the market during mango season. During summer, mango rasayana, also called as "Aamras" or "Seekarane," is the favorite beverage in many homes here. People serve this sweet dish all the time, even at functions and feasts. It is sometimes used as a dessert as well.

Unlike a mango smoothie that is made with milk and sugar, mango rasayana is made with coconut milk and jaggery. Mango rasayana is healthier and tastier than the mango smoothie. You can see this by looking at the ingredients.

An Overview of making mango rasayana:

Cut the mangoes up. Use different varieties of mangoes for the best taste. Take out the pulp by squeezing the mango pieces with your fingers. Grind some grated coconut in a blender, adding some water. Strain the coconut water. Add it to the pulp. Add jaggery powder, cardamom powder, and a pinch of salt. Mix well. Your delicious mango rasayana is ready!

The consistency should be drinkable. Adjust the consistency by adding coconut milk or some water. Pour it into glasses and serve cold.

Important Tips:

  • Adding salt is just for taste. Add only a small quantity of salt.
  • The quantity of jaggery powder usage in the recipe depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. If mangoes are sweet, use less jaggery, and vice versa.
  • Use sweet variety mangoes with one or two sour variety mangoes, to get a tangy taste.

      Thank you. You can use sugar instead of jaggery. But, jaggery gives better taste and is also considered good for health. Add a little salt(a few pinches) to the juice to get the perfect taste. I think, you may get jaggery in the Indian store in your area.

      We don't consume alcohol in our home so I'm always looking for unique and fancy-feeling drinks to imbibe guilt-free and this looks so perfect for summer! I love anything with coconut milk and my husband is on a mango-kick. I can't wait to try! If I can't find jaggery, is there an acceptable substitute?
