Top Tips for Making a Mango Slush:

  • Make sure your fruit is ripe! The best slushy texture is achieved when the mango is fresh and juicy.
  • I always start a slush with a 2:1 ratio of fruit to ice. Feel free to play around with it, if you like yours more fruity or more icy, there’s always room to make it your own!
  • If your mango isn’t very juicy (or if you’re using frozen mango) you’ll need to add some liquid. I like adding a little lime juice (I’m obsessed with its bright, citrusy flavor) but you can use water, juice (like pineapple, apple, white grape, or even mango nectar), or even your preferred liquor if you’re over 21.
  • Keep an eye on the blending – if you like your slushes a little icier, go for a little less time, but if you like a super smooth slush (like my kids do), blend the full two minutes.
  • Oh yeah, and if you have leftovers? Grab a popsicle mold (we love this silicone one!), pour in any leftovers, freeze overnight, and enjoy a mango popsicle another day.
