Mango frooti is a very popular beverage made with raw and ripe mangoes. This recipe has a sweet and tangy taste making it a perfect option to beat the heat. Frooti is readily available in the market but this homemade recipe turns out to be more healthy and refreshing as no harmful preservatives are added to it and all you get to drink is thick, juicy and yummy beverage. This recipe is loved by all and is specifically famous among children and teenagers.
This yummy drink is made by boiling raw and ripe mangoes along with sugar and water and then blended and strained well to get the perfect puree. Later water is added to it as per requirements and stirred well until there are no lumps. You may add colour to it. I prefer avoiding it and using ripe juicy mangoes which helps to give the drink the perfect colour. You can store it for a week in refrigerator. It tastes best when served chilled.
