How to create that magical first sip

First, the star put the diced mango (one of her favorite fruits) into the blender, followed by ice cubes and creamy coconut milk “the really fattening one,” she joked. Laughing, she also recommended that if you’re not looking for a calorie splurge, you can forego this ingredient, but the drink will lack that creamy, ice-cream-like texture.

Next, she added coconut water, two spoonfuls of sugar (to taste; you can also use another sweetener or skip it entirely) and a splash of mezcal. Finally, she added her “little secret touch,” a few leaves of fresh basil, and blended until smooth.

And that’s it! All that’s left is to enjoy this delicious and refreshing tropical drink endorsed by Salma Hayek on a hot summer day! ¡Salud!
