Tips & Tricks to Make a Mangonada

Think you’re ready to give the recipe a try? Here are some more tips and tricks you might want to take note of.

  • If you don’t have the mango nectar that the Mango Chamoyada recipe calls for, you can use mango jam or apricot jam instead.
  • Remember to add some ice cubes in addition to the frozen mango chunks. This will help turn it into a thick smoothie.
  • If you don’t have the Tajin, which is a chili lime seasoning, you can actually make it yourself. Simply combine chili powder with a bit of salt and turn it into a versatile chili lime salt that you can use with tons of other Mexican recipes.
  • If you don’t have homemade Chamoy sauce, you can use some hot sauce to line the edge of the glass. Just remember to use a thick sauce to help the chile lime salt stick to it well.
  • Don’t forget to garnish the mango juice with some more chili lime seasoning and some fresh mango pieces added in towards the end.

Can I Use Fresh Mango Instead of Frozen Mango Chunks?

You totally can! This Mangonada recipe can be made using fresh or frozen mango chunks.

In fact, I would highly recommend using fresh mangoes if you can. Just remember that need to choose ripe mangoes to get the best flavor.

What Can I Use Instead of Tamarind Candy Straws?

If you don’t have the tamarind candy straw that the recipe calls for, you can totally skip using them.

The purpose behind using them is to add a bit of sourness and tanginess to this mango drink.

If you still want that tangy Mangonada taste, you can add some more fresh lime juice into the mango smoothie.

What Other Variations Can I Try?

You can throw some other fruits into the mix and bring some more variations to this Mangonada drink if you want to.

Passion fruit is a good choice, and has flavors that work well with the flavors of mango.

You can also try adding some fresh or frozen berries if you want to. This can also make the Mangonada healthy.
