Author Notes: Licuado de agua is a refreshing drink made by blending fresh seasonal fruit with fresh fruit juice. Originally from Latin America, the most popular flavors are made with tropical fruits like mangoes, papayas, and bananas, but you also see licuado de agua made with strawberries and melon. On the street or in open-air markets, these drinks are like smoothies without the ice. They are blended in licuadores and then poured into "to go" cups. On a hot day, they are delicious.

Serves 1-2

  • 1 cup chopped very ripe mangoes
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 small Mexican lime, juiced (use 1/2 an American lime)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. BLEND: Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend on HIGH until liquid is pureed and frothy.
  2. STRAIN AND SERVE: Pour liquid through a mesh strainer into one or two tall glasses and serve.

This sounds great! I love fruits, and I die for lemons and limes. Mangos are sweet and with a touch of any citric they will be terrific. I can’t wait to get some ripe mangos and try this "Jugo de Mango".
My daughter is coming back from France with a lot of recipes to share, but I already know that she will make this one, one of her favorites.

Ooooh. I can practically taste it just from your ingredients. My favorite fruit flavors all in 1 glass.

These are delicious although i have never been to latin america there was this little make shift stand in the lower east side of NYC that served these. There was usually a line around the block waiting to get one, So refreshing and absolutely delicious.
