About Mangonadas

On warm days, there’s nothing better than a Mangonada. It’s a fun and exotic treat that combines the sweetness of mango, the spicy kick of chamoy, and a little tartness from lime juice.

The exact origins of Mangonadas are not well documented, but it is believed that they originated in the late 20th century. This delicious and refreshing drink is a popular street food and snack, especially in regions with warm climates, such as Mexico. It is believed to have its origins in the Mexican state of Sinaloa, known for its vibrant street food culture and culinary innovations.

Their popularity is also increasing in the U.S. as several locations have begun to offer them for sale. Today, Chamoyadas are a popular treat that can be found in almost every ice cream shop or from street vendors. The good news is that now you can make your own chamoyadas at home. Well, let’s take a look at the best Mangonada recipe and make this yummy treat together!

mangonada step by step

  • Mangos – Before making the drink, freeze fresh chopped mangoes or use frozen ones from the grocery store. Leave one fresh mango aside for garnish.
  • Mango nectar – If nectar is not readily available, you can substitute it with juices like pineapple, guava, or passion fruit. The combination will be amazing!
  • Lime juice – You may need one or two limes depending on their size and juiciness. If fresh lemons are all you have, they can be used instead.
  • Chili lime seasoning – I use my homemade version, but you can use a store-bought brand like Tajín. Don’t skip this ingredient!
  • Chamoy – I have a recipe for making homemade Chamoy, but it can also be found in Latin stores.
  • Tamarind Candy Straws – This is a fun ingredient to garnish with! In Mexico, we call them Tarugos. They may be hard to find locally in the U.S., but look in your Latin stores if you have one nearby. Luckily, they’re also sold online!

How to make Mangonada

Ensure your food tastes like it’s straight from Mexico with this easy Mangonada recipe:

Make the mixture

  • Start by blending the frozen mango, nectar, lime juice, and ice. Add booze if desired.
  • To make a smoothie, blend all the ingredients until they become a smooth and consistent mixture.

Prepare The Cups

  • On two small plates, add some chili lime powder to one and chamoy to the other.
  • Grab your cup, dip the edge on the chamoy, then transfer to the chili lime powder plate to seal the chamoy on the cup.

Serve the Mangonada:

  • Swirl some chamoy on the sides of the cup and a little bit to the bottom.
  • Pour some Mangonada mixture into the cup, top with fresh mango chunks, and sprinkle with chili lime powder. Add more chamoy on top, optional.

Garnish each glass with a tarugo (tamarind candy stick), which acts as the straw! If you don’t have tarugos, you can use a thick straw to enjoy this delicious Mexican treat!

The most satisfying aspect of this drink is witnessing how much it is enjoyed by everyone!

A fantastic fruit snack that contains only natural sugars and carbohydrates, as well as 6 grams of fiber. The low calorie content per serving makes Mangonada a recommended choice even for those watching their figure and following a weight loss program. The key is to fit this dessert within your daily calorie intake and consume it in the first half of the day (or at the latest by 5:00 PM). If left for an evening meal, the simple carbohydrates in this dessert may cause an insulin spike before bedtime, which can hinder effective weight loss.

Mangonadas are similar to smoothies. They are sweet, salty, tart, and fruity. A definite cool-down drink for those hot summer days. It is a great way to use up fresh, ripe mangos.
