Expert Tips for Making Mango Slush

Using frozen fruit is key to making the perfect slush. However, you may want to make the most of the gorgeous flavors of a ripe in-season mango. The solution? Freeze the mangoes yourself!

To make a low-carb mango slush, use diet soda.

There are endless variations you can try. Add other fruit like berries, bananas, oranges, pineapple, peach, apples, melons, and so on.

You can also add milk, coconut milk, or other plant-based milk for a creamier slush.

Make a boozy version by adding a shot of alcohol to your slush. Rum, vodka, or schnapps are all great options.

Use crushed ice to make your slush – it'll mix better and be easier on your blender.
