Ingredients

Kid Version

  • 2 large ripe mangoes chilled
  • 1/2 lime juiced
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 cups ice

Adult Version

  • 2 ounces dark rum We like Mount Gay or Myer's for this

Special Equipment

  • a heavy duty blender such as a VitaMix or NutriBullet

Instructions

  • Peel and pit the mangoes and transfer the flesh to the blender along with the lime juice, honey and rum(if using). Secure the lid and puree.
  • Add the ice. Secure the lid on the blender and start at a slow speed, gradually increasing until the fruit and ice are pureed into a smooth consistency.
  • If the blender freezes up, or doesn't seem to be making progress, tamp down on the ice or turn off the blender and stir the mixture, then resume blending.
  • Serve immediately, preferably in an insulated glass to prevent it from melting too quickly.
