It’s a very unique dessert that contains mango as you can tell by the title. For all you mango lovers this is for you. You’ll hardly find mangonadas or chamoyada unless you're at a mexican ice cream shop. Its very tasty and very refreshing on those hot summer days, its more like a slushy but with a kick of mango and spices. Keep reading and you’ll see that all you have to do is follow these few steps and you will have this delicious dessert to eat.
Before you get started you’ll need to get the ingredients. The materials you will need are all sold at a Mexican store near you. You would probably be able to find some of these items at your local grocery store, but you’ll need to find a Mexican specialty shop to get a few of the items. Here’s the list:
1 1/2 mango (peeled & chopped)
1/2 tablespoon salt
2 tablespoons chamoy (or how ever much you desire)
1 Cup sugar
1 Tray full of ice
1/3 Cup of orange juice
1/3 Cup fresh squeezed lime
Tajin Powder (seasoning for fruit)
Glass or plastic cup
Note: This recipe can vary depending on how much you're going to make. For example, if you're going to make some for two people just double everything.
Now we’re ready to start our process! YUMMMMM
First off you will need to wash your hands. Next you will get your mangoes and cut the edges a little then peel off the skin. Then once you're done with that you will then start cutting your mango into slices then from there to cubes. Be Careful with the seed in the middle make sure to throw out the seed DON’T EAT IT. After those are cut put them into your blender. Add your cup of sugar, and the 1/3 cup of water. Then blend half way till liquified you'll add half of the ice from the tray into the blender with the product. Once the ice is crunched into the mango add the rest of the ice until it looks like a slushy. Finally you will get your cup and add the chamoy on the sides or rim of the glass or plastic cup. You will then add tajin and the lime. Once your done add the mango into the glass and enjoy your Mangonada!!
Mangonada’s are really simple to do, it just takes a little time to make. At the end of the day you'll be happy you took the time to make a Mangonada or Chamoyada.
