Homemade mango lemonade is a delicious drink that you *need* to run and make if you are a mango and lemonade lover. You’ll love the fact that you don’t need to make a simple syrup first and that everything comes together inside a blender. 

It has a bright and fresh lemon flavor from freshly squeezed lemon juice and a good amount of mango flavor. Serve it over ice at your next summer cookout or potluck alongside this Fried Chicken Sandwich with Coleslaw.

Recipe Ingredients

Mango – I used frozen mango chunks but fresh mango would taste probably even better! Use 2 large mangos is using fresh.

Lemon – Freshly squeezed lemon juice will be the best for homemade lemonade. It has a fresher brighter flavor than store-bought with a nice tanginess! You’ll need about 5 – 6 large lemons. We love to use this manual citrus juicer whenever we are squeezing a large amount of lemons. 

Sugar – I used cane sugar but white granulated sugar is perfect too. Feel free to adjust the sweetness of your lemonade based on your personal sweetness level and depending on sweet your mangos are. Use a couple tablespoons of local, raw honey instead for a healthier alternative.

Water – Cold, filtered water is the best. You’ll also need ice for serving!

Variations

Add other fruits like strawberries, peaches, or pineapple to give this mango lemonade a different flavor. 

Use freshly squeezed lime juice instead of lemon juice to make delicious mango limeade!

Tips and Tricks

  • Strain the mango puree. If your puree has some chunks in it, it might be a good idea to strain it before serving. 
  • Adjust the sweetness level. I used ¾ cup of sugar for this lemonade but try using ½ cup if you want a tangier lemonade or if your mangos are sweet enough for your liking.
  • Make a simple syrup. For most lemonde recipes you make a simple syrup by heating an equal amount of sugar and water on the stove so that it dissolves, then it cools then you can mix with the rest of the ingredients. I always like to skip this step but it’s helpful to ensure that the sugar is completely dissolved before serving.
