Frozen mango slice

Bite into this cooling treat during the heatwave.

Australia’s hot summer days call for something a little creative when it comes to finding a treat to satisfy those sweet cravings. These cooling frozen mango treats really hit the spot and we have to see – they taste amazing! The recipe calls for over a kilo of tinned mango, but don’t be put off as that basically equates to two standard sized tins from the supermarket. The lemon juice helps lighten the flavour even more to create that super fresh and uplifting taste. It’s perfect for the grandkids too if you’re looking after them on a particularly hot day and want to treat them. You’ve got to give it a go!
