A yummy drink makiing good use of the mango! Adapted from Cooking With Too Hot Tamales cookbook. I have put this under Southwestern and Mexican catagories, but it also is very Southern and Carribean! Love that mango!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 946.36 ml cubed ripe mangoes
  • 709.77 ml water
  • 28.39 ml honey, to taste (or use 1/4 cup sugar)
  • 1 lemon, juice of
  • lime wedge, for garnish


  1. In a blender combine mango and water and puree until smooth. Thin with more water if desired. Add sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Blend again and serve in tall glasses over ice.
  3. In the original recipe a thin layer of teguila is put on top. I think it's better without!

Mmmmm yeah so good I couldn't help but drink it straight! Good thing there's still more for refills! I just love the taste of mangoes with honey :D Garnished it with lemon wedge as there's no lime. Thanks, Sharon! Made for Veg Swap #3.

Excellent. I agree that this is best if served very cold. Made exactly as directed and we loved it. Thanks Sharon for another great recipe.

Great for a hot day, this is best served ice-cold. From one mango I got about 1 cup of cubes. I also added some extra sugar. This would make a great brunch drink. Thanks Sharon!
