This vegan Mango Lemonade is citrusy, juicy and an ultimate refreshment to beat the heat! It’s easy and quick beverage that even kids can enjoy.
Mangoes are for summer and lemonade is the only beverage that everybody wants when the sun is at its peak.
This time I decided to blend this summer fruit into lemonade and it was an instant hit.
In fact, my daughter wanted to put a stall outside in the neighborhood with my homemade mango lemonade.
We did it and everybody passing by tried it and totally appreciated and loved every sip of it.
It has a beautiful color that goes well with the weather and looks so attractive that you can happily serve it to your guests as well. Hence, it is a crowd pleaser too.

Mango pancakes are Yashvi’s favorite and is a must when in season. It has real flavors made with real ingredients.
Every year this time, I stock my refrigerator with mangoes and innovate kid friendly recipes with them. However, this time I used frozen ones to bring out a certain consistency of my recipe.
Whether its frozen or fresh, every year we totally gorge on this summer fruit heartily. We all love mangoes.
I remember in my childhood days, when I was in India, my dad used to bring big crates of mangoes and it used to be our staple throughout the season.
We enjoyed this fruit all through the day with every meal. Sometimes, we used to just start juicing it or eating directly. I remember the juice dripping through our fingers to our elbows and mom running around to clean us.
It always felt like mango festival so here I try and create similar atmosphere for my kids as well.
I want them to enjoy this fruit every season and create memories which they will remember all through their lives.
Moreover, mangoes are rich in vitamins and minerals and are a great source of antioxidants. They improve immunity and benefit skin and hair immensely.
Also, it’s a healthy alternative to late night snacks and or desserts because its health benefits outpowers its sugar content. However, even though it is sweet but its sweetness is natural and healthy.

Ingredients you will need
I have used these easily available ingredients which you may buy from any local grocery store. However, I have provided links to few of them here for your convenience.
If you plan to buy from these affiliate links then I get a small commission which in turn encourages me to bring in more delicious recipe for you all.
Mango chunks – I used frozen ones to thicken the lemonade a bit but you may use fresh ones. This would be lightly thinner in consistency but as delicious as ever.
Lemon juice – you may squeeze fresh lemon juice or use bottle ones. Also, you may simply peel and blend a lemon in it as well instead of juicing.
Maple syrup – this should be used as per taste because my daughter liked it on a sour side but we liked it on a sweeter side. So, this sweetener depends on individual taste. However, do not overly sweeten it.
Now, after going through the ingredients in details I am sure you must be excited to quickly make it.
So, simply follow two simple steps and enjoy it with your loved ones.
