Slushies are a great warm-weather staple because they come together quickly and make use of all that amazing seasonal fruit.

Serves 2 to 4

What You Need

3 cups fresh mango, peeled and roughly chopped
2 cups ice
2 tablespoons lime juice
⅔ cup carbonated water

What You Do

  1. In a blender, combine the mango, ice, and lime juice. Blend until the ice is finely chopped.
  2. Add the carbonated water and pulse once to combine.
  3. Pour into glasses and serve with a straw.

Chef’s Tip: If your mango is not ripe, add a little more sweetness with a pitted date, a drizzle of agave, or splash of simple syrup. If you like spice, sprinkle a pinch of cayenne pepper or grate in a teaspoon of fresh ginger.
