What Is A Mango Chamoy Drink?

Before we can discuss how to make a mango chamoy drink recipe, we should understand what the drink is. It is not served all over the world and although the drink is growing in popularity throughout the U.S, it is more common in Southern states bordering Mexico.

The History Behind Mango Chamoy

 Is a Mangonada healthy?

Although Mango Chamoy is popular in Mexico, its origins are in China. You see, in China, mangos grow and thrive.  Chamoy and Tamarind came from China during the 1560s by the Spanish. These two ingredients, mixed with mangos and native spices, created the Mango Chamoy drink.

Spanish and China traded many things to get Chamoy. This is actually a very similar sauce to a Filipino and Hawaiian dish/paste called see mui. Although the drink is popular now, it was not always this way. Actually, Chamoy and tamarind were not popular flavors until candy companies began cheaply using them.

During the 1990s, the candy companies grew in popularity and it was rare to see someone without a chamoy or tamarind-flavored candy.

What You Will Need For This Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups of Frozen Mangos. If you have the time and ripe mangos, you can also buy them fresh and instead peel the mango and take the pit or seed out. Cut into thin slices and measure out to approximately three cups, which is usually equivalent to 3-4 mangos.
  • 4oz of Mango Syrup. For lower sugar, there are mango juice and nectar options. These tend to be thicker though and can change the consistency of the mango Chamoy drink.
  • 4 tbsp of lime or lemon juice. Like the other ingredients, if you prefer to use freshly squeezed lemons or limes, you can do that too! However, it may take more then 4 limes to get a full four tablespoons of the liquid.
  • Chamoy
  • Tamarind Candy
  • 2 Cups of Ice
  • red hot chili pepper seasoning

Equipment

  • 2 measuring cups
  • cutting board

Step By Step Instructions On Making a Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe

Step 1: Prepare Ingredients

The first step in this Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe is to prepare the ingredients. You will need chopping or cutting board and a knife to properly cut the mango, lime, and other ingredients. Set everything to the side.

Step 2: Start by Blending the Mango, Lime Juice, and Ice

After you have everything prepared and ready for blending and processing, you will add the fruit, lime juice, and ice to the blender. Blend until it is smooth. This may take up to 3 minutes if you are using frozen mangos instead of raw mangos.

Step 3: Add the seasonings

Next, you will need to add the seasonings to the mix and blend. Make sure that you do not accidentally add the Chamoy or tamarind candy to the blender just yet! Blending Chamoy can change the mango flavor significantly.

Step 4: Add Chamoy

This is my favorite part! After the drink is blended in this Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe, you will need to pour the mixture into a glass about 1/4th of the way. Then, add chamoy and tamarind candy in between layers. Continue to repeat this. You will get swirls of colors! It is okay if it is not even.

Step 5: Decorate Glass, Chill, and Serve

Once the drink is done and poured into the cup, decorate the glass! Using sugar water, sprinkle tamarind candy and chili pepper like Tajin to the rim of the glass. This is optional but does make the delicious drink look even more mouthwatering.

Tips and Tricks

Although I have broken down this Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe into five steps, it is simple enough to complete in less than ten minutes! One tip or trick I have for you is to keep it simple! Although it is nice to use fresh and raw fruits, frozen mangos and lime juice is still as delicious!

However, if you have time and extra mango slices or cubes, you can use this in the blender as well. Actually, there is a way to make this Mango Chamoy Drink Recipe last for months. If this is a drink you really enjoy, I recommend making the drink in advance, however, don’t pour the mango mixture into a glass.

Instead, pour the mixture into a popsicle container or a plastic bag. This way, when you want to drink it in the future, you will only need to grab the bag or popsicles from the freezer.
