The mum-of-four, who had her first baby at just 19, is the queen of parenting hacks – and her latest tip has been dubbed a game changer by her fans.
Taking to social media, Casey announced: “If your kids love the mango and passionfruit cooler [at Costa Coffee], then you need to try this dupe.
“It’s 26p per serving. It’s so cheap to make and it’s a lot healthier – so it’s guilt free.
“The taste is so similar, the kids can never tell.”
In the clip, Casey shows off a bottle of mango and passionfruit Vimto real fruit squash (£2 at Asda).
She dilutes the juice, measures a cup-full and pours it into her blender, followed by a handful of frozen mango chunks bought at Asda.
She tops up the mixture with water, adds a large cube of ice and whizzes in the blender until it resembles the popular iced drink.
Then, to prove how similar it looks and tastes to the real deal, Casey pours her drink into a Costa Coffee cup.
Want to try it? Here’s Casey’s recipe:
In a blender, add 120ml of Vimto passionfruit and mango juice.
Add 150ml of water and seven frozen mango cubes.
Follow with around seven small ice cubes (or a couple of giant ones).
Casey boasts 141,000 TikTok followers and fellow mums have applauded her money-saving hack.
One user replied: “Never mind the kids, I want some.”
A second commented: “OMG game changer.”
A third said: “Omg this is spot on.”
And a fourth chimed: “I’ve just tried this. You’re a genius, it’s amazing.”
