Being from the Philippines, I’m no stranger to mangos. For Filipinos mangos are as much of a staple as rice. Growing up with two mango trees right in my front yard, I’ve had years to try and perfect my mango shake.
One of the most important parts of this recipe is making sure you choose the right mango. While there are lots of good mangos out there, nothing beats yellow mangos. At least when it comes to making shakes. The red and green mangos you see in the store, won’t give you the same sweetness that a yellow mango brings.
How do you know when a mango is ripe? The best way to see if a mango is ripe is to smell it. On a mango that isn’t ripe, you won’t be able to smell anything.
