Mango Ice Cream

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.

Mango Ice Cream 
3 mangoes, peeled & cubed
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Note:  Color isn’t necessarily indicative of a ripe mango.  A ripe mango will yield slightly to pressure, it’s not unusually for a few dark spots on a ripe mango.

Once your mangoes are peeled (I used a carrot peeler) and cubed you will need to puree them in a food processor or blender along with 1/2 cup sugar.

With a beater, beat the whipping cream until soft peaks form (like you would for whipped topping).  Fold in the mangoes and lemon.
Freeze for about 3 hours.  Less than that and your ice cream will be soft, more than that and the ice cream will be to hard.  If frozen for more than 3 hours, thaw the ice cream for about 1/2 hour prior to eating

    • I too appreciated the fact that it didn’t need the ice cream maker. On the flip side, this motivated me to think about all the great ice cream recipes I could make if I had one. There might be one in our future 🙂

      Thanks for hosting every week.

  1. Any kind of ice cream is good ice cream to me but this one looks especially tasty. Simple to make too! Thank you for sharing the recipe. I’ve pinned it to my “Sweets” board.

    • I hate to say this but I can wait for your winter to be over. Winters in Wisconsin USA get VERY long and cold. However – I do hope you get to try the ice cream soon 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • I’ve been eyeing up an ice cream maker. I have all sorts of ideas for homemade ice cream but I didn’t think about banana – that would be good.
