Mangonada Popsicles (Paletas)

A Mangonada paleta is a blended frozen Mexican popsicle primarily made of mangoes and Chamoy. This sweet, spicy, and salty dessert gives a big power punch that’s supremely refreshing for a hot summer day!

A Mangonada is a traditional Mexican frozen beverage that combines the sweetness of. mango with the subtle saltiness of chamoy and spicy Tajín® Clásico Seasoning.

The drink is then served with a straw that's wrapped in tamarind paste and chili ... this delicious beverage's origin is that it came from the streets of Mexico. 
Mangonada popsicles grew popular in the US after Mexican fruit popsicle stores started to sell them.

What's in a Mangonada Popsicle

  • Mango: Frozen mango chunks or 2 ripe mangoes
  • Nectar: Mango nectar is what I prefer, but fresh-squeezed orange juice can replace nectar.
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar 
  • Lime juice: Key lime or regular lime juice
  • ChamoyChamoy is a condiment from Mexico that is typically served as a dip for fresh fruit. It is made with fruit, such as apricot, mango or plum, chiles, and lime juice, and is bottled and sold in varying degrees of spiciness. Chamoy can be bought in most grocery stores in the Hispanic aisle, or you can order it online like I did.  Order Chamoy here
  • Tajin: Tajin seasoning is a balance of salty, citrus, and mildly spicy flavors.
