- 1 mango
- ½ stem of lemon grass
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 60ml golden rum
Prep: 10 mins + freezing | Cook: nil
1. Slice the fat cheeks off the mango. Halve and slice the flesh off the skin. Slice the smaller sides off the mango and cut off the skin. Chop the flesh into small chunks and pop in the freezer for a few hrs or overnight till frozen.
2. When you're ready to make your frozen daiquiris, finely chop half a stem of lemon grass. Pop the lemon grass into a blender along with 1 tbsp sugar and 60ml golden rum. Add the frozen mango cubes and a handful of ice cubes (if your blender can take it. If not, crush the ice first). Blitz till smooth.
3. Pour into two chilled glasses and serve.
4. Mix It Up
Lemon grass is a great flavour match with sweet and tropical mango, but there are some other flavour combos you can try. How about:
Mint & Lime – add a handful of chopped mint leaves and the juice of ½ lime
Chilli & Lime – add the zest and juice of lime juice with a couple of thin slices of red chilli.
