Pune’s special Summer Drink-Mango Mastani. This drink is delicious, satisfying and is quite rejuvenating.It is similar to the milkshake , but little more thick and definitely richer. You can treat it like dessert as well.
This name from the legend of the famous Peshwa ruler Bajirao and his lover, the beautiful Mastani. Initially, when this drink was served to people they used to appreciatively remark ‘mast’ or awesome thus, this drink is called Mastani. Punekars are extremely proud of their cultural heritage and hence this delicious, famous dessert has been named after the effervescent, beautiful lady who stole the Bajirao’s heart.
Mastani is your very own thick mango milkshake topped with pieces of cut fruit, dry fruit, and whipped cream.Specially Alphonso mangoes used for this milkshake.Alphonso mangoes have very great taste and aroma.
There are lots of places like Gujar Mastani, Kasturi Mastani evolved over time in Pune for summer drinks.But I still prefer Sujata Mastani, a big brand in Pune where you can have this famous version of Mango Mastani.
Preparing juices, shakes, smoothies are high on the priority list during the summer months.I have made Mango mastani lots of times with many variations, but hard to get photos for my blog. As soon as I make it, my kids couldn’t wait longer….yummmm!!! My kids love these fancy stirrers, which you can buy from Amazon.Here I have found many fancy straws, also.These look great for the kids party.

This is best in season with fresh mangoes and served with lots of dry-fruits,cherries and lots of whipped cream.I have used vanilla ice cream instead of whipped cream.Mango ice cream also goes very nice with this.
