Frooti is my most favorite mango drink since childhood. I guess most of you are like me Winking.On those days, for any small functions at home like birthday party or guest visits, Frooti bottle makes its presence without fail Happy. My mom used to serve it as a welcome drink. Even though there are many soft drinks available in the market, the craze for this store bought mango drinks like Frooti, Maaza or Slice never goes away. But once my family had a bad experience after drinking Frooti in a tetra pack. It must be an old stock I guessWorried. So we stopped buying it and started running miles away whenever I see it in functions or parties. I restrict Raksha & Sendhil too. Last week I bought few alphonso mangoes and a raw mango to try some interesting recipes with it. When I was browsing for it, I saw few homemade Frooti recipe. I never imagined Frooti making process at home would be so easy with very less ingredients and that too without any preservativesBatting Eyelashes. What else I need to try this !Happy I became very happy and tried it immediately with an over ripen mango which I wanted to finish off.This juice came out yummilicious in tasteLove Struck. It tasted very close to Frooti, Maaza or any store bought mango drink. Sendhil & Raksha loved it and gave a big thumbs upParty.You can make this as concentrate, refrigerate & store it, add ice cold water to dilute it and drink chilled anytime.The best part is we didn’t get any stomach pain, loose stools, cold/throat infection or feverPeace Sign. As everyone says, Homemade is always the best !! Now I don’t have to buy the highly priced mango drink from shops anymore. I have tried this drink thrice so far with different mangoes and observed few points. To make a perfect homemade Frooti recipe, you must follow this.
1. Use only Alphonso mangoes.It works the best ! Taste differs for Badami, malgova or Banganapalli mangoes.
2. Mango should be over ripen.Make sure it doesn’t have sour taste. You can clear off the over ripen ( about to decay) mangoes by making this drink.
3. The ratio of ripe mango & Raw mango should be 2:1 based on the size of raw mango.Raw mango is just to give mild tanginess.
4. Quantity of sugar differs as per the sweetness of mango.
5. Color of the juice also varies based on the color of mango.
Now I can confidently prepare this mango juice for my guests.  You too try this recipe in this summer vacation for your kids and family. I am sure your kids will sing  “ Mango Frooti Fresh and Juicy” Laughing. Ok, Lets see how to make Homemade mango Frooti recipe with step by step pictures and a video !
