Mango is one of the most popular fruits in Nepal, which makes this beverage a popular choice. If mangoes are not in season, use frozen mango or mango pulp as an alternative. This recipe is best used with ripe mangoes for a naturally sweet flavour. Add honey if required to sweeten it a little and sprinkle with a dash of ground cardamom.
