Mango Lemonade

Limonada de Mango

Summer is right here! And is here to enlighten our lives and Today I bring you this new recipe to help us ease the sultry weather in our towns, this Mango Lemonade is tropical, flamboyant and thirst-quenching. Ripe mangoes stretch their natural sweetness to this lemonade making it the perfect pair! 

I love mangoes but as you might noticed sometimes I tend to go for tangy and acidic flavors which is ironic being baking my main profession hahah but you know life’s full of this little hints of contradictory and enigmatic cues… my point being when choosing mangoes; I prefer them to be sour and unripe, in Venezuela for example is commonly eaten raw with vinegar, salt and adobo, I know it’s kinda weird here on top of the hemisphere but every culture has its charms.

Well, getting back to the Mango Lemonade, I thought perhaps unripe mangoes weren’t the best option here, because it will probably turn out a sour Mango Lemonade, therefore I used ripe mangoes for a change, for me it was a surprise that those two together were to taste so splendid.

This Mango Lemonade is full of bright yellow color, packed with a lot of vitamins and freshness and is perfect to receive the Summer, enjoy the sun, the beach and keep hydrated no matter what.
