Can you image summer without Mangoes? Because I can’t! I start dreaming about mangoes in spring itself 😉 that much I am crazing about this fruit.
I got some fresh mangoes from my local grocery store. They were so sweet and pulpy; I immediately decided to make some limeade out of it. During summer I have a habit of consuming lots of juices and smoothies to keep myself hydrated. So I always make some lemonade or juices ahead to stock up for the next 2 days.
Adding grated ginger to the limeade or lemonade gives you that zing 😉 so I love to add some fresh ginger in my juices. Apart from that, ginger has a power to lower the blood sugar levels, so it’s good to add ginger in our day today meals.
Normally limeade is made using sugar syrup. If you don’t have time to make them ahead you can very well add honey instead of sugar. Since this limeade can be made ahead it’s a best option for any picnics, get together, celebrations, parties, etc., this is kids friendly version. For adult version you can add 2 cups of white rum instead of water, it will turn into to Mango ginger mojito 😉
So, enjoy this summer with this Mango Ginger Limeade or lemonade.
