Mango Colada (Mango Drink With Coconut Milk)


          I like Pina Colada, with all the tropical flavors of pineapple and coconut in it, but of course without alcohol. Got to taste it only after marriage and thereafter, one of my favorite mocktails. I had bought this huge box of mangoes and wanted to make something with it apart from eating them plain and I also had some coconut milk ( not the canned ones, it comes in tetra paks at Trader Joe's, without the oily smell), so putting the two together, I made this delicious drink, replacing the pineapples with mangoes. Cheers, to all those mango lovers out there..

Need To Have

  • Mango (ripe) cubes - 1/2 cup
  • Coconut Milk - 1 cup
  • Sugar - 3 tablespoons
  • Water - 1/2 cup
  • Lime juice - from 1/2 a lime




Method
          Blend the mango pieces to a smooth pulp, add the coconut milk, sugar, water and lime juice, blend everything together, serve it cold.


Sending it to Tickling Palates for the Let's Cook: Chilled Delights event,
                to Food Corner for the Midweek Fiesta event,
                to Vegetarian Food & Me for Gayathri's WTML event,
                to Tomato Blues for the Summer Spirits event,
                to Srav's Cooking Concepts for the CC - Spring Seasonal Food event and
                to The Pumpkin Farm for the Mango Mania 99 event.

Note
You can replace the water with ice cubes.
Adjust sugar according to the sweetness of the mangoes.
Can use fresh coconut milk, and also sugar replacements.
