Mango and orange juice

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

It is too hot nowadays in Oman, the temperature is never below 45 degrees, so you only feel like drinking cold drinks, they are refreshing, and keep you safe from dehydration.

Ingredients (they can be adaptable according to your preferences):
1 raw mango (which is green and May/June was the season for it, so I had them peeled, cut into thin pieces and freeze them to use them longer), peeled and cut into thin pieces
1 orange, peeled and cut into pieces
2 tbs tang (which is a flavoured powdered drink, comes in different flavours, I used mango and orange flavour)
2 tbs fresh mint leaves
sugar (optional)
ice cubes (optional)

mix all ingredients in a blender, modify quantities according to your preference, if you don't have raw mangoes (which are quite sour), you can add lemon juice.

For some variety:
I add frozen strawberries always, but didn't have them that day, moreover, you can add rose water which gives you a sweet flavour

A note:
having all ingredients make it easy to prepare a fast refreshing drinks for your family and guests
