Mango Lemonade Recipe | Easy Mango Drinks

Print Friendly and PDF

Summer has come to an end and the rainy season has just started in Mumbai.I have prepared this drink on one of those hot summer days last week. During summers, I try increasing the quantity of fluids I take in order to keep myself hydrated and hence I try preparing various kinds of juices. I like having Nimboo Sherbet and so I usually keep a bottle of Lemon squash in my refrigerator.As I get bored drinking the same thing every time, I usually play around with various flavors based on the season.You can use the lemon squash as the base and add any fruit pulp like mango, strawberries, watermelon and churn it with chilled water to get a refreshing drink.I even use various fruit crushes like Kiwi or strawberry crush instead of the fresh fruit pulp.

Check out few other refreshing drinks with mangoes - Mango Milkshake, Mango Lassi , Mango Juice   and if you want to prepare a few more refreshing drinks- check them out here.

  1. I usually store Lemon Sherbet squash in my refrigerator and hence I do not prepare fresh sugar syrup every time,all I need to  do is to mix the blended fruit puree with the lemon squash and water to make respective fruit lemonade.It is easy and refreshing.
  2. I highly recommend to use sugar syrup rather than mixing the plain sugar in the mocktails,it adds nice taste to mocktails.
  3. I even use plain soda water instead of plain water for a fizzy touch.If you are using lemon flavor drinks you need to reduce the quantity of lemon and sugar syrup in the recipe.
  4. You can use any ripen mango variety for this recipe.Adjust the sweetness according to the taste of it.
