Mangonada: The non-alcoholic frozen treat

Mangonada is a Mexican frozen drink somewhere between a mango smoothie and a slushy. It's made with blended frozen and/or fresh mango chunks and lime juice, generally topped with the tangy fruit condiment chamoy and Tajín or chile powder. It's often served with big straws made from tamarind leather.

Market research firm Datassential reports that 22% of the population knows about mangonadas while only 10% have tried it. Mangonadas have the highest awareness from Gen Z, vegetarian, and vegan consumers as well as Hispanic consumers.
