Homemade Mango juice

This will be a very short post but I really wanted to share my own homemade mango juice. During summer time, I love to make fruit juices from scratch because it’s healthy to have fresh fruits as much as possible in my diet.

While I’m not the biggest fan of mango juice or even mango nectar, with time, I found myself appreciating this drink more and more as I’m growing older. Especially now I know the many benefits mango juice has on our health. In fact, mango juice is rich in vitamin C and minerals.

Ideally it’s best to not add sugar in the mango juice in order to benefit from all of its positive health contributions. However, depending on how your mangoes are ripe or not, you can choose to add sugar in order to balance the sourness of the fruits. But it’s totally optional.

INGREDIENTS

2 Mangoes

Juice of 1 Lemon

Water

½ or 1 cup of Sugar (Optional)

DIRECTIONS

Peel the mangoes and cut their flesh into pieces.

In a blender, mix mango pieces, lemon juice with water (up to 7 cups of water depending of the capacity of your blender or of the consistence of the juice you are looking for).

If you choose to add sugar, do so.

Using a strainer, pour the juice into pitcher and chill in the fridge until it’s time to serve. And for easy storage, transfer the mango juice in a bottle and store it in the fridge.

Enjoy!
