Ice Apples and Mango Smoothie

Ice Apples or the Palm Fruit is known as Tadgole in Marathi. These are seasonal and are found only during summner season. They taste a lot like the malai of the tender coconut and have cooling qualities.




                                                         
                                                          Skinned Ice Apples (Tadgole )


I love this fruit and often like to have it combined with the mango. See one more simple yet delicious
 recipe of tadgole and mango here.

Whenever I make this smoothie I remember my childhood . When kids we were not aware of all the fancy and yummy desserts like  tiramisu or pannacotta but still the childhood evokes nostalgic memories of certain seasonal fruits and dishes which I immensely miss. This dish is one of them .

This smoothie that I have made today with tadgole and mangoes is very tasty and easy to make. 
Chilled smoothie with some mint leaves  satisfies and refreshes you in this summer heat . Enjoy it chilled .












Ingredients :

3 to 4 ....................Tadgole ( Ice Apples)
2 ............................mangoes ( pulped)
10 to 15 ..................fresh mint leaves
sugar if needed
ice cubes








 Method :

Wash and remove the skin of ice apples carefully.
(They are very tender and the water inside may ooze out).
Grind every thing except the ice cubes.
Add water if the smoothie is too thick.
Serve chilled topped with ice cubes.
