Hi everyone! Hello? Hello? Hello?
My mom, she gets a food co-op, which means you get organic fruit and vegetables, a whole big bucketful, every other week. She got it yesterday and there were mangos in it. Now my family doesn't like mangos all that much so we were all debating what we should do with those.
We were struggling with what to do, but then my mom was looking up recipes and she found this one called Mango Coolers. It was super duper easy and it looked very good. It had this orangish look and since it's still really hot here in Texas, I wanted to make something not hot, but not freezing, freezing cold. And so I made this.
Before we could start, my mom had to look up how to cut a mango. You cut it in sections around the seed, then cut little squares and slice it off the skin.
After that, I put 1/3 cup of milk, the mango, one cup of ice, lime juice, and honey or brown sugar. Then you blend that all together in a blender and then after it's all blended, you put it in the fridge for about 20 minutes. You can add a little more brown sugar or honey if it's not sweet enough.
And that's it.
I think it's okay. The first taste you get is a little overpowering with mango flavor. It's strong. But once you get use to it, it gets a little sweeter.
I think the mango wasn't quite ready. Jamie Oliver's recipe says to have it as ripe as possible, and ours weren't that ripe.
I'm definitely going to do a take 2 on this when the mangos are more ripe.
