Mangonada

Category : bdg recipes

Mangonadas are a delicious frozen drink originating in Mexico. Typically made with mango, lime, and chili powder, it’s a spicy, sweet and refreshing drink for summer. Topped with fruit and savory Chamoy sauce, it’s the perfect combination of sweet and sour. Don’t forget the Tajín powder for the rim! Which, incidentally, would be great on the rim of a frozen mango margarita.

If you don’t live in Texas or another Southwestern state, you might have to order the Chamoy sauce and Tajín online.

{RECIPE}

  • 10 oz. bag frozen mango chunks
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • juice of two limes (juicy limes!)
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1 cup water*
  • Chamoy sauce
  • 1 mango, diced
  • Tajín powder

To a blender add mango chunks, agave nectar, lime juice, ice cubes, and water. Blend until smooth.

While it’s blending, rub the cut limes around the rim of 4 small glasses. Dip the rims of each glass into a a bowl with some of the Tajín powder. Drizzle a teaspoon of the Chamoy sauce around the insides of each glass.

Pour the frozen mango mixture into each of the glasses. Top with diced mango and another teaspoon each of the Chamoy sauce.

*if your blender gets stuck, dilute with a little more water – or tequila! – to loosen. 

Makes 4 small (6 oz.) drinks.

If you want to make an alcoholic version, whir in 6 oz. of white tequila.
