Light and refreshing mango coladas with fresh mango puree and coconut water. Oh yes, these are served with jalapeños ice cubes!!!
Summer is almost here.
Gimme flip flops, sunglasses, beach chair and some mango coladas!
And drink away… it’s skinny……
Place sliced jalapeños (I used red and green variety for photographic purposes) in ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze until solid.
As ice melts into the drink, the jalapeños slowly start infusing its heat.
The given measurement of mango puree makes about 3 to 4 drinks.
Harmless coconut water is naturally sweet, so it does not require any added sugar.
