I grew up having the benefit of being able to go outside and pick our own fruits to make juices.

We had just about any tropical fruit you could think of. From varying mangos (Julie, ice cream, starchy) to cherries, pommerac, oranges, grapefruits, pommecythere, passion fruit, pomelos/shaddock, and a few more.

Juice combinations ran from plain old single fruit to combinations made up of whatever was in season at the time.

One great combination is mango and passion fruit. I mean even Starbucks has its own mango passion fruit drink.

This is a refreshing drink with no artificial flavors. Fresh combination with tropical flavor to entice your taste buds.

A combination of sweet, from the ripe mango, and tart from the passion fruit.

Great fruit combinations make for such refreshing drinks.

What is passion fruit?

This fruit is also known as grenadille, maracujá, maracuya or lilikoi and is sometimes written as passionfruit.

Passion fruits cut with some seeds in and some seeds in a bowl.

Passion fruit can either be yellow or purple in color and is found growing on a vine. I grew up mainly with the yellow ones.

It has this very tart taste. Some may say even sour. The riper it gets though, the sweeter it becomes.

The interior of the fruit is what is eaten. It’s a pulpy inside filled with seeds.

I know people are sometimes concerned with the seeds but they can be eaten with no recourse. Ask my toddler.

Passion fruits are filled with antioxidants and are known to have multiple amounts of beta carotene.

Nutritional benefits of mango

And then we want to include the best ever fruit, mangoes.

Varieties of these are in the thousands. And the benefits of mangoes are endless.

Mangoes, among other benefits, include:

  • help with digestion
  • promote a healthy gut and eye health
  • clears the skin
  • lowers cholesterol
  • aids with clearing the skin from blemishes

How to select the best mangoes?

For this recipe, we want to get the mango at the sweetest point so that will be a ripe mango. Almost like what we would use to make mango ice cream.

A ripe mango should be gently squeezed to test if it is soft. Not firm and hard.

It needs to give slightly when you touch the skin like what happens with ripe peaches.

I try to avoid stringy mangoes for this drink. But you can use them. You will just need to strain them out to get the juice and less string.

Ingredients for making passion fruit mango juice

The best ingredients for this juice need to be fresh fruit.

  • Fresh mango pulp.
  • Passion fruit pulp.
  • Water.
  • Sugar.
  • Angostura bitters.

Equipment and tools

For this recipe it would be good to have a:

  •  Sieve of some type. This could be a regular strainer (what I use) or cheesecloth.
  •  A good non-reactive bowl to catch the juices that have been strained. I don’t like using plastic containers because they sometimes retain the smell of the last thing you stored in there.
  •  A good blender of some sort. It doesn’t have to be a big brand blender. In fact, my ninja blender worked fine mixing the pulp of the mango.

Making mango passion fruit juice

Wash your mangoes and passion fruits. We are not going to use the skin or the shells but we do want to not have any debris or dirt in our area.

Cut the passion fruits in half and scoop out the fresh passion fruit pulp and seeds. We are trying to get 1/2 cup.

Add the pulp to a fine-mesh sieve and using a spoon, stir to strain the liquid through. Save some of the seeds for garnish.

Remove the meat of the mango from the skin and seeds. Blend the pulp with enough water so that your blender does not stick. You do not want it to be too runny.  

Once blended, combine the mango pulp and the passion fruit juice.

Add water to the juice mixture and add sugar. Adjust to taste as this can vary depending on how sweet your fruits are.

Add the bitters and put to chill.

Best served chilled, and you can use passion fruit seeds as a garnish at the base of the glass.

What is Mango Juice?

Mango juice is just what it sounds like, juice made from mangos. The liquid from mangos can be pretty thick – if you’ve ever drank a can of mango nectar, you know what I mean. So to make mango juice, we add water to achieve an authentic “juice” consistency.

Recipe Ingredients

Everything you need to make mango juice
  • Mangos – Sweet and fleshy, this fruit is great to snack on, but it also makes a fantastic drink!
  • Sugar – This ingredient is optional, but you can incorporate it to dial up the sweetness if you want to.
  • Mint Leaves – This herb makes for a pretty garnish and is also the secret to my perfect sugar syrup. 🤫

How to Make Mango Juice

Making the simple syrup

The Sugar Syrup

  • Start the Simple Syrup – Combine water, sugar, and mint leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Simmer for one minute. Remove from the heat and let syrup steep for about 30 minutes. (Photos 1-2)

The Mango Juice

Cutting and making the puree
  • Peel and Slice Mango – Slice the sides along the mango seed. Cut the mango flesh in a grid-like pattern without going through the mango skin. Detach the flesh from the skin with a large spoon and scoop the cubes out. For more tips on doing this step, see my guide on how to cut a mango(Photos 3-5)
  • Puree – Transfer the mango flesh and water to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. (Photos 6-8)
  • Finishing Touches – Pour the mango juice into a jar. Next, add the sugar syrup to taste. This step is optional, and the amount of sugar syrup you use is entirely up to you. Stir to combine.
  • Serve with ice cubes and garnish with mint leaves. Breathe deeply and enjoy!!!

Recipe Variations

  1. Make your mango juice extra tropical by substituting the water with coconut water, orange juice, pineapple juice, or any other juice you love.
  2. To make mango nectar instead of juice, leave the water out and only add sugar syrup. The finished product will be a much thicker and sweeter mango drink.
  3. Make a mango smoothie by adding milk instead of water. Creamy and delicious! 😋

Tips and Tricks

  1. With this mango juice recipe, consistency is totally up to you. Add more water if you would like a thinner juice.
  2. If you choose to add sugar syrup, do so a little at a time and taste the juice as you go until you reach your desired sweetness level. You can always add more sugar syrup if it isn’t sweet enough, but it will be hard to take it out if you add too much.

Make-Ahead Instructions

Mango juice stays fresh in the fridge for 3-5 days, so you can make it a few days in advance if you’d like. You can even freeze mango juice. It will keep good for three months in the freezer, so technically, you can make it way in advance if you’d like.

Serving and Storage Instructions

Serve mango juice cold! Add a few cubes of ice, give the glass a stir, and serve it up right away.

Store mango juice in a pitcher or jar with a lid in the fridge. You can freeze mango juice in any airtight container. I like to use ziplock bags personally.

When you are ready to use frozen mango juice, simply take it out of the freezer the night before. Once it’s thawed, you can serve it immediately.

FAQs

Can I put mangos in a juicer?

You can, but honestly, mangos do best in a blender or food processor when you want to get the juice out. The shredding and grinding action of a blender will get much more juice out of the fruit than the juicer.

Are mangos high in sugar?

Yes, as fruit goes, mangos have quite a bit of sugar. If you are watching your sugar intake, you can probably still enjoy this juice, but definitely skip the sugar syrup.

What is mango juice good for?

Feeling refreshed on a summer day! 😜 In all seriousness, though, mangos have many health benefits. They have loads of vitamins and plenty of minerals like potassium, calcium, phosphorous, and iron.

What Goes With Mango Juice

Mango juice goes well with so many recipes. I like to pair it with Caribbean food myself, such as Jamaican jerk chicken or Jamaican rice and peas.

It also goes well with coconut shrimp or anything spicy. Try it with a plate of kelewele (spicy fried plantains) or Poulet DG, and you’ll see what I mean. 👌
