Mango: Mango has often been referred to as a cross between a peach and an orange. They add a tropical sweet and citrus flavor to the milkshake.
Pineapple: Pineapple adds a fresh yet sweet flavor to this drink.
Milk: Milk serves as the liquid that helps the mangoes, pineapples, and ice cream blend into a smooth, creamy shake.
Vanilla Ice Cream: Vanilla ice cream creates a rich and creamy texture. It also adds an extra dose of sweetness to your shake.
Whipped Cream: Whipped cream is optional; however, it adds to the overall appearance of the Mango Milkshake.
Sparkles: Like whipped cream, sparkles are optional, but they do make the drink more appealing.

Are Mangoes and Pineapples Healthy?
This minimal effort Mango Milkshake is not only cool and refreshing, but it contains two nutritious ingredients: fresh mango and pineapple.
Pineapples, as well as mangoes, contain high concentrations of vitamin C. Vitamin C is a superstar. Vitamin C helps decrease wrinkles and boost collagen generation, visibly giving you tighter skin.
How Can I Tell If A Mango Is Ripe?
Contrary to popular belief, red color is not an indicator of ripe mango. To determine whether the mango is ripe, carefully squeeze the mango. The mango should be slightly firm but not overly hard and should give in the way that a peach or avocado would.
Additionally, if the mango has a tropical aroma near its stem, it is probably ripe. Make sure the mango you choose is not overly ripe, or it will be difficult to cut.
Firm mangoes are optimal for cutting. However, if the mango is too soft, you can simply use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. If your mango has not ripened, store it at room temperature until it is ripened enough to use.
Do not store unripe mangoes in the refrigerator, as this will prevent them from ripening. You can only store mangoes in the refrigerator for 4-5 days after they have ripened.
To ripen mangoes quickly, place them into a paper bag and store the mangoes at room temperature. The mangoes will release ethane gas which speeds up the ripening process.
How To Cut Mango
To cut a mango, you need a mango that is ripe but firm. Cutting an overripe mango will lead to a mushy, sticky mess that is hard to cut into pieces.
Mangoes contain a slightly flat oval pith in the center of them. The goal is to cut around the pit to detach the pit from the flesh.
Hold your mango with one hand, stand it on its bottom with the stem facing downwards and cut one side of the mango with a sharp knife from top to bottom of the mango.
Repeat with the remaining sides of the mango until you have 3 pieces: two sides and the middle section of the mango that contains the pit. Cut lengthwise and crosswise cut into one mango half, being careful not to cut into the peel and repeat with the other mango half.
Pick the mango up, keep your fingers at the edges of the mango, and press the center of the mango so the flesh is sticking up. Cut or peel the mango flesh from the peel.
Place the middle piece of mango with the pith still attached on a cutting board. Cut around the pit with a pairing knife and remove the peel. Depending on the size of your mango, you may be able to peel more mango flesh away from the peel.
How Do I Know If A Pineapple Is Ripe?
The best way to tell if a pineapple is right is by using your hands and your nose.
A robust sweet smell means the pineapple is ripe.
However, to ensure your suspicions are correct, tug one of the middle leaves on the pineapple’s head. It is ripe if the leaf detaches from the pineapple with little resistance. If you are fighting to detach the leaf from the pineapple, find another one.
How To Carve A Pineapple Into A Cup
You can use a pineapple corer to easily remove the pineapple flesh and turn it into a cup. Twist the pineapple corer into the pineapple to remove the flesh.
Place the pineapple onto its side and use a sharp knife to cut off the top of the pineapple head carefully. Run a knife in a circle along the inside of the pineapple 1/2-inch from its outer shell. Do not pierce the bottom of the pineapple with your knife, or your pineapple mango drink will escape.
Next, carefully score the core inside the pineapple into 4 sections without piercing the bottom or side of the outer pineapple to create 4 sections. Use a large spoon to scoop the pineapple’s flesh out. You can chop the pineapple flesh if necessary or place it into your blender as is.
If you are using a pineapple corer slicer then you can use the same method to cut off the top of the pineapple head carefully. Then simply insert the pineapple corer slicer into the top of the pineapple and push down and twist to remove the flesh from inside. Again, be careful not to puncture the bottom of your cup.
