Mango ginger limeade

Posted by

I started with something else in mind and ended up creating a perfect summer drink with a zing. Mango ginger limeade is sweet, fizzy, and has a kick from the ginger. I wanted to prepare iced tea with some leftover mango puree but instead prepared limeade. And I am so glad I did.

Mangoes are still available, and I am trying to prepare my favorites before bidding adieu to mango season. I saw this as an opportunity to add some much-needed vitamin C to our diets. Kiddo loves oranges, and I try to add a little variety to these drinks. He gets to sip on these without soda and loves them.

Win-win for me.

Spices add the edge to drinks. Cinnamon, ginger, and chili are some pantry staples that I love adding to my drinks. Apart from the dominant flavor, I look forward to the extra touch with these magical ingredients. 

How are you keeping yourself cool this summer?
