Just recently I bumped into this article about Paletalandia, a place in Lodi, CA where you can get all sorts of Mexican-style snacks from the traditional raspados, to the not-so-traditional Mangonada - a mix of Mango, Mango sorbet and spicy Mexican candy (Chamoy and Tamarind).  A lover of mango myself, I thought the combination was heavenly, so I wanted to share with you all.

From the article: "Mangonada is a dessert that mixes spicy and sweet. Chunks of mango are mixed with mango sorbet and covered in spicy chamoy sauce. One popular feature is the straw, which is covered in tamarindo candy."

In order to do this you will need:

  • 1 Mango chopped in little squares.
  • 1 Cup of Mango sorbet
  • Tajin Chamoy sauce
  • 1 Tirolo tamarind straw
  • You can add a little Tajin Clasico seasoning if you want/can take additional spicy

Enjoy!
