A friend gave me some mangoes from Cebu. Since I love fresh fruit shakes, I decided to look for a mango smoothie recipe. I stumbled upon this Mango Iced Tea recipe. I love drinking iced tea and mango juice, why not try something that combines both?
I enjoyed the final product but I prefer the pure mango juice. But still, a good variance of the mango drink. This is especially nice to try if you want to spice things up with your drink selections. Most perfect when drank freshly made.
