Summer time means movies and mangonandas! A mangonanda is a frozen mango treat similar to a snocone or raspa but add chamoy – a savory and picoso Mexican sauce. This summer I’m making homemade chamoy and mangonadas inspired by HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA 3: SUMMER VACATION! It’s called the Vampire Mangonanda. Queridos, gather your familia and channel your inner vampiro by enjoying this refreshing HT3-themed treat.
