Mango Juice

Accompanying the mango kesari is one of my favourite fruit juices – mango juice.

Mangoes have high levels of vitamin C and A and a generous amount of antioxidant compounds, iron and calcium but it would be wise to consume mangoes in moderation as they are also recommended for those seeking to gain weight.

While I usually like a simple juice by blending the fruit with water, I did like my mother’s version recently.

Mango juiceIngredients (for 1 cup):

  • Mango – ½ cup, chopped
  • Orange juice – 1 tbsp
  • Mint – 2 or 3 leaves
  • Sugar – 1 tsp


Simply blend all the ingredients together with water and then sit back and enjoy a delicious drink.

    • Aruna, This particular variety of mango that my mother used for the kesari and the juice is the most sought after variety in Sri Lanka called ‘Karutha Colomban’ which is only (or perhaps mainly) grown in Jaffna and it is available during two seasons of the year, around April – June and then now.
