Mango Fruit Punch


It's so much fun when I discover a new recipe to add to my blog. When my sister told me about this recipe over phone, it sounded delicious and I had the sense of the taste pretty much. One of the great things we all sisters possess in common, is the passion for sharing recipes! If we happen to try out a new recipe and if the end result is impressive, we can't wait to share with each other! Its an enjoyable moment. Its even more enjoyable to share the secrets of doing little twists and tweaks to the original recipe and make it even more delicious! After we all sisters came away from our home, the curiosity for learning new recipes has grown in each one of us. Obviously, the more you get involved in cooking, the more the curiosity for learning grows! Also, each one of us are happening to meet so many friends, attend parties, read magazines, which are sources for countless new recipes. Sharing recipes has always been fun! And honestly, that has been one of the key motivating factors for me to start on this blog venture. What a way to share and learn recipes! I originally thought my blog would atleast be useful to share recipes among our sisters and immediate family members, which can avoid explaining over phone and writing them down everytime. I never ever thought this would grow beyond what I imagined! Just the feel of it is so exciting!

Alright, about this recipe... As I said, this is a recipe that I learnt from my sister. She told that she made this once for a potluck party. I tried this yesterday and we just loved it! She is absolutely right, this is a great potluck dish. So simple to make, and you can either serve it for a drink or for a dessert. Mango being my favorite fruit, I was happy to see Mango Mania started by Meeta. I see mangoes everywhere these days! It calls upon my forgotten passion for mangoes. This is one good dessert that makes me indulge into that passion!


Ingredients
  • Mangoes - 2
  • Mango Pulp - 1 can (850 gm)
  • Diced mixed fruits like apple, pineapple, grapes (avoid bananas as it will become too soggy) - 1 cup
  • Milk - 2 cups
  • Sprite - 1/2 litre
Procedure:

  • If you do not wish to use canned mango pulp, you can make pulp from about 4 fresh mangoes, by blending them to a puree. You can add 1 cup of water while blending.
  • Peel and dice the mangoes, set aside.
  • Mix the mango puree, diced mangoes and diced mixed fruits with milk in a large bowl. Soak this overnight in fridge well covered.
  • Add sprite, ice cubes before serving.

Friends, Thank you so much for all your great comments..

Laavanya, you are right! Me too not a fan of that pink colored cherry flavored fruit punch. This is much better with fresh ingredients.

Hi Harini! sorry, I was visiting a few of my favorite blogs, and got confused with the names :) Nice to know your name !:)

Rashmi, yes.. Hats off to technology, nothing is impossible nowadays!
