Being a non-alcoholic blended mocktail, I’m sure the kids will totally love sipping this mango drink that will make for a great summer treat.
I'm sharing with you how to make the mango julius based on the classic one and also the tropical mango julius
Table of Contents:
Mango: The taste of the mango is what makes this drink. So it needs to be well ripe and sweet. I used a large alphonso mango to make this blended mocktail.
Milk: I have used 2% pasteurized and toned milk. I boiled the milk, and let it cool down to room temperature before chilling it in the refrigerator until it was time to make the drink.
Sugar: The quantity of sugar used will depend on how sweet the mangoes are. So you need to adjust it accordingly.
Ice Cream: Most commonly, vanilla ice cream is used to make this mango mocktail. You can use either store-bought or homemade ice cream for this.
Water: It is best to use ice-cold water while making this cold summer treat.
Ice Cubes: Using ice cubes will make the mango julius a great frozen treat.

How to make Mango Julius
Being a blended mocktail recipe, you simply need to add all the ingredients to the blender jar and blend until smooth.
Enjoy it cold.
Tropical Mango Julius
Replace cold milk with coconut milk
Use Pineapple ice cream or Coconut ice cream instead of vanilla ice cream.
If you want to enjoy this drink during non-mango season, then you can also use canned or tinned mangoes instead of fresh ripe mangoes.
You can also use either fresh mango juice or bottled juice instead of water. In the case of using mango juice adjust the quantity of sugar.
If the drink is too thick, add more water or mango juice and if it’s too thin, then add more ice cubes or ice cream.

If you are looking for non-alcoholic drinks to use your stash of ice cream, then this mango julius is for you.
But at the same time, if you do not happen to have ice cream on hand but still wish to make this mango mocktail, then you can use condensed milk in its place. You need to skip sugar as condensed milk in itself is very sweet.
You can also pour the drink into popsicle moulds and freeze them to enjoy it later on like a frozen treat, which is great for summer on hot days.
Mango Julius tastes best when enjoyed right away. But in case there are leftovers, then pour them into a Tupperware and stash them in the freezer.
When you are about to serve it, you can either enjoy it as scoops of ice cream or blend it once again and enjoy it as a slushie or as a frozen smoothie treat.
Pick mangoes that are sweet and fleshy. Varieties like Alphonso, Mallika, Javadhu, Badami, Malkova and Banganapalli are pulpy and naturally sweet tasting.
Avoid any variety that has a lot of fibre in them like Sendhura and tangy-tasting mangoes like Roomani.
Yes, you can use canned or tinned mango pulp. If possible, go for canned Alphonso mangoes to make the best mango julius.
Adding ice cream gives the mango julius the creamy texture and also its flavour. But if you do not have it on hand, then you can use condensed milk in its place.
