Cool and refreshing drink of mint and mangoes

As the Summers are still here so mangoes are still in season. We all have our own favorite ways to enjoy this king of fruits,some just slice the fruit and enjoy it, some make desserts, pudding, pickles and so many different and creative recipes with mangoes are tried every season.My family favorite dessert  is - Home made Mango kulfi

Today I am sharing the quick and so refreshing mango mint lemonade drink, which have sweet and tangy flavours of mint , lemon and mangoes. Lemon and mint not only give flavour and taste to the drink but also balance the heat and sweetness of mangoes.I have added aerated water but you can also make it with chilled water.

INGREDIENTS-

  • Ripe mango -1
  • Mint leaves / pudina - 10
  • Black salt / kala namak- 1/2 tsp
  • Roasted cumin / bhuna jeera -1/3 tsp
  • Aerated lemon drink or soda -1 can
  • Sugar - 3 tbsp
PROCEDURE-
  1. Wash and peel mango skin and chop it into small pieces.
  2. Add chopped mango pieces, mint, sugar, salt, cumin powder and 1/4 cup water in a blender
  3. Blend it to make a smooth puree.
  4. Add the puree in the serving glass to fill it about 1/3 and add some ice cubes.
  5. Add aerated lemon drink over it and serve with a stirrer 
  6. OR mix puree and aerated drink in a pitcher,mix well and serve in glasses
Serving-
Rub the glass rim with a slice of lemon and then in a plate mix some sugar,chili powder and salt .
Dip the glass rim in the sugar solution and then gently fill it with the lemonade

Note-If you are using water instead of aerated lemon drink then add 1.5 tsp of lemon juice at step-2
