To make mango juice is very easy. All you need to do is puree ripe mangos then strain the pulp. Be sure to choose the ripest mangos you can find as they will have the most flavor and natural sweetness. You can tell when a mango is ripe by giving it a slight squeeze.
A ripe mango will give a little under your fingertips. Ripe mangos will also smell fragrant and fruit even before you peel away the skin. These are the mangos you want to use!
Once the mango juice is made, you can mix in your favorite brewed black tea. Use regular tea or decaf depending on your preference. A little honey and a few fresh raspberries complete the drink and make it picture-worthy.
Keep a pitcher of this tasty mango ice tea in your fridge this summer and you stay refreshed and happy all season long! Enjoy.
