What is chamoy?

Chamoy is a Mexican condiment that is made from fruits like plums, apricots and mangoes, but each recipe is different. It also contains chilies and it’s both sweet and spicy in flavor.

Can you make it ahead of time?

You can make the pureed mango ahead of time and keep it in the freezer. Take it out 20 to 30 minutes before you want to pour the drinks.

The mango should be thick and iced so don’t let it thaw out if you are able.

Can you use fresh mango?

I prefer to use frozen mango when making mangonadas. The drink should be ice cold and thick and smoothie like.

If you use fresh mango, you can add in some ice cubes to the blender or be sure to chill it well for a few hours.

Tips!

  • Make this a cocktail (Mangonada Margarita!) by adding 1 shot of reposado tequila to each drink.
  • These mangonadas are best enjoyed immediately so that the ice doesn’t dilute the drink.
