Mango Juice | Fresh Mango Juice | Summer Drinks

I can never get tired of mangoes, can you??? Mangoes are my weakness and everytime I come up with a mango recipe for the blog, I am at a loss for words... How many times do you think that I can keep on repeating the same "I love mangoes" phrase over and over for every post. Yet again I am here with a refreshing mango juice and I so have to say again that I am addicted to this fruit...

If I say eating mangoes as it is, is a pleasure then I would say drinking this juice cold on a hot summer day is double the pleasure. Chennai had some showers last week and the weather was at its best after the unbearable Agni. But things have come back to normal and it was blazing hot yesterday... Even the air from the fan was laced with heat and we were sweating like anything when under the fan. Only another shower can revive the climate...

We have to keep us hydrated and so juices are the only option. The last week had been quite busy and I had to travel a lot. So a big batch of mango juice was all I could think about. Chopped, blended, dumped into the fridge and whenever I came back home after a ride in the hot sun, the drink was a refreshing welcome. Again use best quality mangoes that are fully ripe so that u can minimize the sugar. Alphonsos are the best down south and banganapalles come second. The drink is really easy to make without any preservatives and tastes just like frooti or slice or maaza or any mango-based drink, infact it is more tastier and healthier when compared to its artificial counterpart.

~*What U Need*~
Ripe Alphonso mangoes - 2
Sugar - 2-3 tbsp
Ice cold water - 3-4 cups
Ice cubes - to serve

How I Made it:
Remove the skin and chop the mangoes. Take the mango pulp in a blender, add sugar and 1/4 cup water and blend tille smooth. Add ice water and bring to desired consistency.

Serve chilled!!!

** My Notes:
** Use best quality, very sweet and ripe mangoes.
** Add sugar to taste.
** U can replace sugar with honey also.
** If you donot have ice cold water, add ice cubes.
** U can also chill the mango in the fridge and then use the pulp
** If the mangoes are too fibrous, strain this mixture.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,

Signs off!!!
