I love mangoes but I have to admit I’m shy of them in processed drinks and smoothies.
The rich nectar is far too thick for my tongue and heavy.
This season, I’m determined to do more than ‘eat mangoes’. I’d very much like to drink them – the colour is beautiful to the eye.
Bright, orange, indicative of the goodness within.
I don’t know if it was the lime quarters that made it look a bit curdled but that didn’t come through on the tongue. It was a smooth, sweet and refreshing blend of mango puree and lime.
We had this at a little lunch with friends and family and it was a hit. The limes added the perfect zing to cut the sometimes over-the-top creaminess of mangoes. The scent leaf syrup added a certain je ne sais quoi as did the soda water.
Perfect sunshine of the season, in a cold, tall glass, with none of the heaviness I worried about.
