So, last week I was perusing the Internet and I came across a recipe for mango ice cream from A Baker’s House that does not need an ice cream maker to make. It immediately piqued my interest and I set it aside to make this week while I was on vacation.
This recipe, being so easy and inexpensive (I paid less than $3 for all the ingredients) is a great way to entertain the kids. We made it this morning and took it to grandma’s house as a treat for everyone. I had to wrestle my father-in-law for the left-overs, he won 🙂
While good, this wasn’t my favorite recipe. Because of the whipping cream it tasted a lot like flavored whipped topping. I think in the future I’ll modify the recipe a little bit and actually use it as a dessert topping instead of ice cream.
With that being said; the “ice cream” is fairly tasty, easy to make and we had some fun in the kitchen. I would definitely recommend trying it out if you’re looking for something to do with the kids and/or a light dessert.
