Mango Iced Tea is a refreshing drink to sip on warm summer days. Now chuck the expensive Starbucks or Lipton Tea and make it at home using fresh mango puree. Here is how to make it.
I always get excited about Summers, and why not its the season of my favorite fruit, Mangoes.
I am sure it’s not only me who gets excited about Mangoes, but there are also many fellows out there who love this fruit as well.
So when the season comes up, my urge to experiment with new recipes starts using this versatile fruit, Mango.
I use them in almost everything, from Salads, Desserts to even Curries.
You name them and I must have tried it.
But for my everyday meals, I enjoy relishing it as Aamras, a popular North Indian dish. But this time, while working, I craved a fresh and chilled drink and as fresh mangoes were sitting in the fridge, I tried my hands on this Mango Iced Tea.
Believe me, it was the best decision ever!
Since then, I make it for my family or even when guests come to visit us during Summers.
You can also make it and store in the fridge, how amazing is that?
Just because we have to wait for the mangoes for a whole year, I keep a jarful of delicious Mango Mint Iced Tea ready in the refrigerator so that we can sip on and celebrate the last of fruit this summer.
What is Mango Iced Tea?
It is one more refreshing cooler that I relished almost every day this summer.
It is easy to make and gets ready in just 15 minutes.
In this version of Iced Tea, strained black tea is mixed with fresh mango puree, lemon juice, and mint leaves.
The flavors of this iced tea are so soothing, that it instantly gives you relief from the scorching heat outside.
To make this Iced Tea, you just need 4 ingredients – Black Tea, Mango, Lemon, and Mint Leaves.
Yes, that’s it. While the mangoes give it that sweetness, lemon juice provides it a tangy and refreshing taste.
You can add a little sugar in this if you like it to be sweeter.
Sometimes, when the mangoes are sweet enough. I avoid adding sugar to this.
Can we use Canned Mango Puree to make this drink?
Yes, if fresh mangoes are not available, you can use the canned ones too.
But I recommend you to try this recipe with fresh mangoes.
Can Green Tea be used instead of Black Tea?
Yes, you can use green tea as well.
Strain the green tea and mix it with mango puree, mint leaves, and lemon juice.
This delicious and refreshing drink is perfect to have on warm summer days as it keeps you fresh and hydrated and is very soothing to the body.
Mangoes help in the prevention of cancer, they also support in lowering the cholesterol.
I have even observed that mangoes even makes my skin look better.
Most importantly, mangoes fight against stroke, hence, it is good to consume mangoes during summer.
On the other hand, mint acts like a palate cleanser and an appetizer.
It even promotes smoother digestion.
How to make Green Mango Iced Tea?
To make Iced Tea with green mangoes, just replace ripe mango puree with green raw mango puree.
The taste will be a bit tangier as compared to the Ripe Mango Tea, but it tastes yummy too.

You can use peach, rose, lemon, apple, hibiscus, raspberry, strawberry to make this Ice Tea.
