Homemade Mango Lemonade is simple to make and is bursting with seasonal flavors.
I’m sorry folks, but I’m just not ready to accept that summer is nearing an end. It’s hard to ignore the signs, but I’m trying my best. Pinterest is no longer filled with juicy berries and heirloom tomatoes. Family barbecues are getting less frequent, and the weather is getting cooler. But it’s still august, and I’ll post a summer recipe if I want to. The pumpkins can wait. So can the apples, the fall spices, the warm fall flavors. Today we can have a tall glass of homemade lemonade, served over ice. Hold on to summer, it’s fleeting, but it’s still here.
This Homemade Mango Lemonade couldn’t be simpler. Lemonade is a familiar and popular flavor, and the mango flavor elevates it to a whole new level. There are all kinds of artificially flavored lemonades out there (and don’t get me wrong, I totally enjoy them all!) but there’s nothing like the good simple flavors of fresh fruit…try this one – it will become a family favorite.
- 1 ripe mango, peeled and pit removed
- ⅓ cup water
- ⅓ cup lemon juice
- ½ cup sugar or sweetener

- In the bowl of a blender, combine the mango pieces with ⅓ cup water. Puree until smooth.
