Made this for 4th of July. It was a big hit. I used 2 cans (15oz ea) of sliced mangos. I saved the juice, added enough water to measure 2 cups of cold water. I could not find apricot jello so I used peach instead. Will keep this recipe for sure.

Refreshing! This recipe is a keeper. I used fresh mangos and measured out for the correct amount. I had on hand sugar free lemon gelatin and only orange gelatin. We enjoyed it for dessert! Yum!
