Mango Iced tea

A cool recipe for hot days…Mango Iced Tea

Use per 1 liter water
4 teabags
1 large ripe mango or two small ones
1 tbsp. of honey or raw sugar (optional)
squeeze of lemon or lime juice

Make this recipe as is, or dilute it with ice-cubes or water

Full of anti-oxidants and vitamin C

Boil half of the water and pour over teabags. Brew 3-5 minutes, depending on how strong you like your tea. Meanwhile, peel the fruit. Slice the outer layer of the mango into small chunks of flesh, drop them in the remaining 500 ml cold water. Hold the remaining mango above the cold water and squeeze the flesh around the pip while removing the remainder of the flesh as a pulp. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon or lime, and stir.

Remove teabags, stir in honey/sugar until dissolved. Mix the tea brew with the mango water. Set in fridge to cool. Make it taste super special by serving it sprinkled with some coconut flakes and a dusting of cinnamon. Do it as a mocktail? Serve in cocktail glass and add a thin slice of lemon on the side of the glass  to make it look super fancy

This recipe works with all current seasonal stone fruits, and is a great way to use up fruit that is getting almost too ripe. Mixing fruits can be really good too; adding pineapple creates an even richer flavour to your iced tea.

Have a great summer
