Almíbar de Mango
(Mango Syrup for Snow Cones/Shaved Ice)
- 3 ripe mangos, peeled and finely chopped
- 2-1/2 cups water
- 2-1/2 cups granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
- Tajin (dried chile and lime fruit seasoning) (optional)
Combine the chopped mango, water, granulated sugar, and ground cinnamon in a medium saucepan. Stir to combine until sugar is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 to 15 minutes until the mango has cooked and the syrup has thickened slightly. Remove from heat and let cool completely. To serve, ladle over shaved ice. Sprinkle with Tajin, if desired. Enjoy!
Refrigerate syrup in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
