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:
- In a blender, combine the mango, ice, and lime juice. Blend until the ice is finely chopped.
- Add the carbonated water and pulse once to combine.
- 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.
