mango lemonade

Out with the old, in with the new.

mango lemonade | conifères & feuillusI was so happy to see that processed fruit juice was finally removed from Canada’s Food Guide. Fruit is perfect eaten as is. But sometimes, say a hot summer’s day, a drinkable version comes in handy. I came across this recipe on @itheloveofcakes and instantly knew I had to try it out. It’s proved to be a winner here as a perfect alternative to processed fruit juice. Thank you Deepika (The Love of Cakes) for allowing me to share your recipe on my blog.

Mango Lemonade (recipe from @itheloveofcakes)

(serves 4-6)

  • 2 mangoes, (I use Ataulfo mangoes)
  • filtered water
  • freshly squeezed juice 1 lemon
  • maple syrup, honey or raw sugar to taste
  1. Peel and pit the mangoes and cut into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Puree the mango pieces with about 2 cups water.
  3. Continue to blend, adding more water to achieve the consistency you desire.
  4. Add lemon juice to taste.
  5. Sweeten to taste. (If you start with sweet mangos, this really is not necessary.)
  6. Serve chilled.
