This treat is simple to make, and so refreshing! It’s also a great way to re-purpose leftover lemonade into a delicious new treat. It only takes 3 ingredients – frozen mangos, lemonade, and a handful of ice. And what is better on a warm spring or summer day than sitting on the porch with a cold drink?
Of course, ice cold lemonade is the perfect solution to cool you off. Many of us are familiar with frozen strawberry lemonade, so it’s about time to try something new, don’t you think? This frozen mango lemonade is so simple to make. It is an icy blend of fresh squeezed lemonade, frozen mango, and ice. That’s it!
I really do love mango. It’s a fun flavor that can be used in savory dishes, desserts, and drinks. I use to think it was only good in sweet foods like my mango sorbet but then I discovered Kimi’s mango chutney, which is what makes my tandoori chicken sandwich so tasty.
So, back to the lemonade…
The sweet mango and tart lemonade balance each other out to create a refreshing icy treat. Let’s just say it was enjoyed a few times over the past week, and I will be making it again in the very near future. I used my basic honey sweetened lemonade for this recipe but you could stevia sweetened lemonade. All three options make for a tasty lemonade and go well with the mango. However you make it, I’m sure it will be tasty!
