Another school project means another yummy food! This time it’s music class, and I am presenting Vodou music from Haiti. As my interactive element, I decided to make mango juice!
Due to its tropical climate, juice is a mainstay in Haiti. Juices from many fruits are commonly made and can be found everywhere. Guava juice, grapefruit juice, mango juice, along with the juices of many citrus fruits (oranges, granadilla, passion fruit etc.). To me, mango sounded the best.
- 4 cups water
- 3 cups orange juice
- 2 mangoes
- 1 cup sugar
Boil the sugar and water together until sugar is dissolved; let mixture cool. Scoop out the mango flesh and combine with orange juice in a blender. Add the sugar water with puree and continue to blend.
Pour into a pitcher filled with ice cubes and serve. Serves 8.
There you go! I know this isn’t the most extravagant recipe I’ve ever posted, but it is a perfect drink for the morning and is very refreshing.
See you next post.
