About Mango Frooti

This homemade mango-flavored drink is a copycat version of Mango Frooti, a popular beverage in India.

It comes together in under 30 minutes using a few simple ingredients.

This homemade version is much better than the packaged one, as

  • It is freshly prepared.
  • Much more economical
  • Use of high-quality ingredients
  • Free of preservatives and artificial colors
  • Sugar can be controlled.

Sip Frooti mango juice on a hot summer day or serve it for your parties, get-together, or barbecue parties. You can also use it to make mocktails and cocktails.

Ingredients

Ripe Mangoes – I prefer Alphonso or Kesar mangoes, as they are bright orange, sweet, less fibrous, and juicy. You can use any ripe and juicy mango of your choice, but make sure it is bright orange in color, sweet, and less fibrous.

Raw Mangoes – The addition of raw mangoes gives a slight tanginess to the drink.

Sugar – You will need white granulated sugar. You can adjust it according to your taste.

Citric Acid – It gives the drink a nice tang. If citric acid is not available, you can replace it with lime or lemon juice.

You will also need water and salt.

Pro Tips By Neha

You can adjust the sugar depending on the sweetness of the mangoes and your taste preference. Add more sugar if the mangoes are not sweet enough or you like a sweeter drink.

Never cook the mangoes and sugar together. If cooked together, the sugar will hamper the mangoes from softening.
