HOW TO MAKE MANGO JUICE AT HOME
During rainy season in Benue state where I live, mangoes of different varieties, named after humans (like John, Peter, Juiie, peach, e.t.c) abound.
In fact, you eat as much as your belly can carry no wonder Benue is referred to as the ‘Food basket of the nation’.
I thought of other ways of enjoying my mango fruit and the idea of making juice from mango pulped into my mind.

First, peel and chop some mangoes.
Then you place the mangoes in a blender with ice and some water.
Blend until smooth.
If the mango has a lot of fiber, pass through a fine sieve to remove the fiber. If not, serve and enjoy!
My blended mangoes turned out quite smooth so I didn’t have to sieve.
1. I got 4 cups of mangoes out of 3 large mangoes. It might be different for you depending on the kind of mango you use.
2. This recipe calls for no added sugar. I find that the juice is sufficiently sweet without the added sugar. However, if you want it sweeter, feel free to add in some sugar or some honey right before blending.
3. You could add some freshly squeezed orange juice to your it. This will help boost the taste of the mangoes.
