A frozen mango lemonade recipe you’ll fall in love with!
Fall might be upon us, but it’s still pretty hot across most of the nation. Don’t give up the fresh flavors of summer just because the season passes when you can still visit your favorite local farmers market and pick up the ingredients to make this simple and refreshing Frozen Mango Lemonade!
Many of us don’t want to fuss with making elaborate recipes so it’s been my goal to come up with simple and fast recipes that are both beautiful and delicious. This is why I love this mango lemonade so much. It takes the beloved sweet and juicy mango that is often times hard to eat because of the large seed in the middle, and transforms it into a refreshing drink.
The riper the mangoes, the better. I often use the mangoes that are too ripe for my taste because when blended, you get a very sweet outcome. All you need to do is chop the mango into small pieces and puree with lemon juice and a sweetener. For a super short cut, you can buy the lemon juice, but I find that freshly-squeezed lemon juice tastes so much better. The sweetener can be honey or a simple syrup. You can even get creative here by using coconut sugar. I made a simple syrup using equal parts of water and white granulated sugar.
Kids will love this lemonade because of the sweetness, but if you want to dress it up and serve it to adults with some booze, then add rum or Moscato to the mix! I also like to garnish the rim with the Mexican seasoning, Tajin. It’s a blend of chili pepper, lime, and salt. The Tajin really enhances the flavor of the fruit all while giving a tangy and spicy kick!
Home Chef Tip: To make this beverage adult friendly, add your choice of rum or Moscato and garnish the rim with Tajin Classic Seasoning.
