Summer is almost here.

Gimme  flip flops, sunglasses, beach chair and some mango coladas!

And drink away… it’s skinny……

Yessss.

These skinny mango coladas are very light and fresh since it begins with coconut water and fresh mangoes.

Sweet, ripe mangoes and good quality coconut water makes a delicious mango colada. 

Jalapenos ice cubes makes these coladas totally fancy. Place sliced jalapeños (I used red and green variety for photographic purposes) in ice cube tray, fill with water and freeze until solid. 

As ice melts into the drink, the jalapeños slowly start infusing its heat. YUM.

Sugar depends on the sweetness of mangoes and coconut water. Since, my coconut water is naturally sweet and mango was at the peak of ripeness, I used 3 tablepoons. You may have to add more, if using a different brand.
