Nutty Mango Shots Recipe



Hello foodies. Mangoes are the only reason for me to love summers and look forward to it every year. Today’s recipe is a mango-based recipe. I had one mango left in my kitchen. It was far too less to make a cake using it. I didn’t want to consume it as is either. So I made this simple and yummy recipe that I like to call Nutty Mango Shots.

Mango shots are served chilled. It uses quite a few ingredients and gets ready in a jiffy. It is a great dessert to make when you have unannounced guests.

I have already shared the recipes of Mango Milkshake and Mango Lassi. Do check them out too. Let’s get started with the recipe of Nutty Mango Shots. I used a very sweet, ripe Kesar Mango. You can use any variety of your choice. Just that the mango should be pulpy and not fibrous. I used almonds. You can use any nuts of your preference. This recipe yields 3 shots. But the pictures show only 2 of them because I ate the other one as I was making them.




  • Kesar Mango – 1 medium, ripe and sweet
  • Condensed milk – 3 tbsp
  • Fresh cream – 5 tbsp
  • Softened butter – 2 tsp
  • Saffron – 10 strands
  • Almonds – 6, dry-roasted and coarsely ground
  • Salt – a pinch

How to Make Nutty Mango Shots

  • Take almonds in a pan. Dry-roast them lightly for about 5-6 minutes till they become aromatic on low heat. Allow them to cool and then ground them coarsely.
  • Wash and peel the mango. Chop its pulp and pulverize it lightly. You may make a puree if you like smooth texture. I like it chunky so I pulverized the mango pulp lightly.

  • When the mango mixture has cooled off completely, fill it into the shot glasses and seal the glasses with aluminum foil (I forgot to take a pic with the foil on) . Keep it in the freezer for 8 -9 hours to set.
