Mango Limeade

 

The weather in our neck of woods this year has been weird. Can't believe that I had made this limeade to beat the heat a couple of weeks ago when we had to endure 80 deg F and above temperatures. Now we are back to 50's and had to turn on our heaters today. Anyway though this drink it not for days like today, this fruity limeade is a perfect foil for those hot, sultry days. A quick one to put together if you don't want to toil around the kitchen preparing the sugar solution. I used the canned sweetened mango puree and if fresh fruit is being used, just run the mango flesh along with the other ingredients in a blender.

Ingredients for 2 servings:
1/2 cup sweetened mango puree
Juice from 2 limes (about 2 Tbsp lime juice)
Sugar to taste
1.5 - 2 cups of water or adjust as needed
Crushed ice as needed

Method:
* Add everything expect ice in a pitcher and stir well. Refrigerate until serving.
* Add ice just before serving to avoid the limeade getting diluted.

This refreshing thirst quencher goes to Blogging Marathon #29, under the theme "Cooking with Colors".
