If there’s anything that can rock my world in the hot summer months, it’s a frozen beverage. Seriously! Lounging in the hammock, reading a juicy novel, and cooling off with a cold drink – that’s heavenly! These delicious, refreshing frozen mango slushies do not require any added sweetener thanks to a healthy dose of fresh (or frozen) mango and orange juice. A small amount of fresh lime juice adds just the right amount of tangy taste to balance out the sweeter flavors. Want an adult version? Turn this into a mango margarita with the addition of tequila.
