Mango’ade

by on April 14, 2015
 

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.

I love the combination of mangoes and lime, of sweet and fresh. I love it raw. With yogurt, in a salsa or salad and quite frankly on its own – just the two of them.

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.
