I mentioned this mango lemonade a few weeks ago when I made mango ice cream. Whole Foods had sent me a huge box of mangoes and I was experimenting with fun new recipes (mangoes taste great in smoothies, by the way!). I have made peach lemonade in the past and it was such a huge hit that I decided to try mango lemonade. It was definitely a good idea because Mike and I both ended up really liking this. It’s refreshing and sweet, and the buttery mangoes give it a nice smooth texture. I would recommend stirring it before you serve it, as the mango part tends to settle at the bottom. You can bet that I’ll be experimenting with many more lemonade recipes as we enter the Summer fruit season – strawberry lemonade is next on my list. 🙂
1/2 cup mango puree that has been strained through a fine mesh strainer
3/4 cup granulated sugar
5 cups water
3/4 - 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
Bring the mango puree, sugar, and water to a boil, and then simmer until the sugar is dissolved, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely then stir in the lemon juice. Serve over ice.

Sounds like a perfect summer beverage!
So tasty and so delicious! Love it!
I *love* the flavor mango adds to drinks and smoothies. I want to drink the whole pitcher of this stuff!!
Looks delicious! My husband LOVES mango so I want to use it more often. How many mangoes did you use for your puree?
Oh I LOVE this! I bet it is so refreshing. Must try!
This looks so refreshing! I would have never thought to use mango as a lemonade base. You are a genius!
This looks like the perfect refreshing summer beverage! and I’m super excited to try out the peach lemonade version as well!
sounds so refreshing!
