Every time Mango season comes around, I am at a loss with what to do with all of the mangoes!  In my search for new ideas, I came across a recipe for a Mango Colada via RealSimple.com and I had to give it a try.  It was a yummy alternative to the traditional Pina Colada.

1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1 cup ripe mango cubes
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 ounces (1/3 cup) cream of coconut
3 ounces (1/3 cup) light rum
1 cup crushed ice

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and thick. Pour into tall glasses and serve with a straw.
