Mango Shake

Ma Muang Pun

Serves 2 Cooks in 10 minutes Difficulty Easy

I had to feature the recipe for Mango Shakes on my blog because it is such a popular drink here in Thailand.

I run Riverside Guesthouse where my Khao Lak cooking class is located and get asked for this all the time. So if you’re not in Khao Lak right now I will tell you how to make it.

If you can get fresh, juicy ripe mangoes where ever you are then you have to try this. Mango shakes are so easy to make and delicious and refreshing.

As well as mango, a decent syrup is required to make your shake. If you want to make your own syrup that’s really easy too. Simply heat one litre of water and add one kilogram of sugar. Stir until the sugar has fully dissolved.

You can keep the syrup for two to three months and make loads and loads of other shakes with it too. Try it with bananas or strawberries or your favourite fruit


  • 1 large ripe mango
  • 35ml syrup
  • A pinch of salt (to taste)
  • 25ml milk
  • 150g ice (crushed if available)
  • Mint leaves


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a blender.

To Serve

Pour into tall glasses and garnish with a couple of mint leaves.

Please try this shake at home, its so easy and fun. Hope you enjoy Ma Muang Pun by Apple 🍎 Riverside Thai Cooking in Khao Lak.

As my mango shake recipe was so popular I have added a recipe for mango smoothies too. It’s healthier as it doesn’t use any syrup and can be made with low fat yoghurt too. Read more
