Storage Options

Best enjoyed fresh to maintain the frozen texture, but you can store any leftover mango mixture in the freezer for a short time.

Ingredient Substitutes

Experiment with different varieties of mango or add a splash of pineapple juice for an extra layer of tropical flavor.


For a non-alcoholic version, replace the tequila and triple sec with mango juice and sparkling water for a refreshing mango mocktail.

For those who prefer an alternative with alcohol, consider:

  • A Piña colada as it brings a tropical flavor of coconut and typically includes a sweet rich taste with the help of pineapple.
  • A Coconut Mojito brings together the minty freshness of a classic mojito with the creamy, tropical flavor of coconut.
