Mangonada is a sweet and tasty Mexican frozen treat. Full of flavors and colors, this mango-flavored chamoyada is easy to make and a great Summertime drink. 


  • 1 12 ounces can mango juice
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 16 ounce bag frozen mango chunks
  • 4 teaspoons chamoy sauce (approximate) + more for glass rimming
  • ½ teaspoon tajin (approximate) + more for glass rimming
  • 1 fresh mango, cut into chunks
  • 2 tamarind candy straws (optional)


  1. Add manjo juice, lime juice, and sugar to blender
  2. Add mangos and blend until mango is well incorporated
  3. On one plate add some chamoy sauce and spread out for glass rimming
  4. On second plate, add tajin
  5. For each of two glasses, dip top in chamoy and then tajin to give each glass a spiced rim
  6. In two glasses, add about 1 teaspoon (each) of chamoy sauce to bottom
  7. Using spoon or container, place some more chamoy along the inside of the glass. This will help flavor and give a colorful look
  8. Sprinkle just a dash of tajin inside each glass
  9. Fill each glass until almost fill
  10. Add just a splash of chamoy
  11. Add fresh mango. Then sprinkle with more chamoy and tajin
  12. Add tamarind candy straws and serve (optional)


  • For added adult fun, consider adding Rum or Tequila to your mangonada
  • In your blender, add liquids before the frozen mango
  • If you have a less powerful blender, add ½ the frozen mango and blend. Then add the second ½ of the mango.
  • Calories are NOT considering a tamarind candy straw, as that can vary widely.
