Mango chilli lemonade

There is no love sincere than the love of food -  Quote by George Bernard Shaw
If you ask me, there is no love sincere than the love for mangoes!

Mangoes have officially arrived and what better way to start using them than in a gorgeous drink!!

Mango chilli lemonade happened over the weekend and I am so glad I made this drink. Its sweet, sour, salty, mildly spiced and bursting with the flavour of mangoes. So so refreshing!!!




I know I will be making this lemonade all summer to accompany all of my favourite appetisers. It will go really well with Roasted Potato wedges, Vegetable Tikka, Bruschetta Bar, Green goodness hummus and whole wheat pita chips. Not to forget Margherita Pizza made with homemade pizza dough and sauce.



This is a perfect summer drink and an interesting twist on regular lemonade. Mango and green chilli really work well together and to make this lemonade more delicious, I added some chilii-salt mix on the rim too.

Adding green chilli might sound weird but it adds just the right amount of mild heat which balances out sweetness of the mangoes. Tastes really amazing. You gotta try it.


If you love mangoes like me, there are lot of recipes on the blog. Mango salsa is one of my favourite which is great in tacos,wraps, sandwiches. I also love making smoothies with mangoes.You really have to try Mango Chia seed pudding too.
