With temperatures reaching record highs, this summer is proving to be a really sizzling one. A cool glass of honey-mango fresca, an invigorating drink popular in Mexico, among other places, is just what the body needs to tame the heat. Mangoes are also now in-season, so take advantage of fruit’s availability to create this healthy refreshing way to cool down.
