    Mango Iced Tea with Coconut Ice Cubes

    Our chilled mango tea is a bit like a mango lassi. Only rather than using yogurt, we added tea and coconut milk for a little Asian interest—beautiful flavours that can embrace any number of spices, from cinnamon or cloves to mint and cardamom. Explore and experience.

    Tip

    Iced coconut milk cubes can be jazzed up with any number of flavours. Instead of mint leaves, try cinnamon. Or pop a star anise into each cube before freezing.

    Tip

    If fresh mango is not available, you can use 2 cups (500 mL) canned mango purée.

    Healthy hit

    Just the colour of mango is enough to make you feel energized. In the summer season, fresh mango might be a challenge to find. But canned puréed mango is readily available; look for pure mango with no additives.
