Mango Strawberry Banana - Milk Shake Party

Favorite of kids and adults alike, this milk shake party is perfect way to bring smile at everyone's face. Specially during summer-time sleep-over, this trio of fruits shakes will make every kid feel-at-home!

Spring-Summer season is all about juicy and vibrant fruits! It's season of mangoes, finally! and Strawberries too!!!! and evergreen Banana is favorite of everyone, all year round! Isn't it?

In my home, Vishal is CRAZY for mangoes.... especially Indian mangoes! Every season, he will make sure to stop and ask every Indian Shop for Exported Indian Kesar Mangoes. During off-season, even if I keep saying "no", he will bring Kesar Mango Puree from Indian Stores and then I get a "chopped challenge". haha :)

"Present, Mango 3-Ways! Appetizer, Main Course and Dessert too" ;)

My list of Mango Recipes says ALL about my husband's love for mangoes :)

Almond Milk Shake - 3 Ways - Mango Strawberry Banana - chefdehome.com

Just so you know, mango is national fruit of India and NO Indian, I mean.... NOT EVEN a SINGLE ONE, you will find who don't have nostalgic memories attached to this fruit.

Growing up, my parents often took us for Summer Vacation to Haridware (an ancient city in Uttarakhand, India). One thing that was widely available in very nook and corner there, was mangoes. Every meal, those days, was accompanied with Fresh Mangoes. Refrigerators were not so common in hotels...... so, big burlap-bags full of mangoes used to be tied and dipped in river to chill. It was amazing time, seriously, even if you don't go whole day to grab bag from river, no one will steal it, ever!

Mangoes were (still are) favorite of every kid! Even rhythms or poems used to showcase mangoes to grab attention of kids.

Like, growing up, I have vivid memories of watching this short story "Ek Chidiya, Anek Chidiya (One Sparrow, Many Sparrow)" on National TV.

This animated (short story) rhythm was about teaching kids: "Unity is Strength". I'm sure, all of you, who have spent their childhood in India, have seen this sometime in your life, on TV. If not, you missed something really great. Watch it right now :) I could not find one with English Subtitles, so I'm sharing the gist of story here. But, trust me, it is fun to watch and specially kids will love it. I promise.

In the story, a little boy wants to pick mangoes from tree but mangoes are too high and he is too small to reach even a single one. This is when his elder sister tells him and his friends a story.... story about a group of sparrows who stayed united when hunter tried to catch all of them...... sparrows flew away carrying the net with them....... and then, their friends, "rats" helped the sparrows to free'em from the hunting net. In the end, boy and his friends understand the meaning of  "strength in unity" and together, they pick ALL mangoes from tree.

My MOST favorite scene used to be when rats chew-off the net from sparrows and set them free. Also, when everyone gets to eat a delicious mango! :)  yumm!

Enjoy Mango Season with Fruit Milk Shake Party - chefdehome.com

Vishal and I, both grew up listening this rhythm. Even today, when we remember, sometimes we play it on YouTube. When I was planning to share "Milk Shake" Kiddo Party, I thought to share this nostalgic video from my childhood..... This video also shows: how much every kid, specially in India, has loved mango in their young age.

Even today, this time of year, you will find all Indian bloggers sharing some delicious way to enjoy mangoes! More than a recipe, it is our love for this juicy fruit which starts spreading all-over in summers. :)

Mango Strawberry Banana Milk SHake for Kids Summer Party - chefdehome.com

I know, I just went all for mangoes and nothing for strawberry and banana. But, I'm sure you get it :)

Feel free to use just mango for shake or just strawberry! For personal taste, I have kept these shakes "vegan" by using almond milk instead of regular milk. However, regular milk taste great too and will be perfect for kids.

I hope you all having a wonderful Monday!

Enjoy!
