This Raw Mango Mint Drink is my mom’s recipe. Since it’s a mango season here in India and summer is on the peak with the temperature reaching around 46°C, there are increased chances of the heat stroke. So, I decided to post this raw mango mint drink, which helps to keep the heat stroke at bay. I have also prepared popsicles for my kid. Made with raw mango, mint, cumin powder and sugar, it tastes superb with a sweet and sour flavor.
