I am also enjoying this drink as I review it, sitting at my computer. I used about 1 cup of ice to make mine frozen. I think I'd like to add a couple more teaspoons of powered sugar when I make this again. Other then that, it's a perfect summer drink. Thank you for posting the recipe.

I'm enjoying this as I type my review, it is very good and quite strong :) Love the flavor of the mango; however, the drink is a bit gritty, which I know can happen with mangoes. Next time, I will be a little more choosy about which parts of the mango go in to hopefully minimize this. ETA: As I'm finishing this, I realize that some of the grittiness is due to the powdered sugar, as it has sank to the bottom of the glass, so I may reduce that next time. Thanks for sharing!
