Mango Agua Fresca

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sharon123

This is a light, refreshing drink very popular in central America. A great thirst quencher! The recipe was inspired by Maria Gonzales, a street food vendor and Whole Planet Foundation borrower, who lives in León, Nicaragua, via the Whole Foods store.

As offered, this drink really was light & refreshing! This is not a smoothie, but a perfectly balanced drink with the mango sweetness mellowed by the water & perked up by the lime juice for an everyday refreshing beverage. I used a very ripe sweet Honey Haitian Mango too. It was super fast & easy to make. I feel the future cravings for this refreshment on hot humid Summer days already! Thanks for sharing another fantastic beverage recipe! [Made & Reviewed for Everyday is a Holiday Tag]
