  2. When you’ve mixed the ingredients, blend it using a wire whisk or a hand blender. You don’t need to vigorously beat it. A cut and fold method using a spatula would work great as well.

3-Ingredients Mango Ice Cream Recipe:

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Chilling Time: Overnight

Makes: About 4 cups

Ingredients: 1 cup cream (at least 35% fat content)

1 cup condensed milk

1 cup mango purée (fresh or canned; preferably fresh)

Instructions:

  1. Blend the cream until it slightly thickens. Do not over blend or else the butter will be churned out of the cream.
  2. Add one cup of condensed milk and give it a little whisk.
  3. Finally, add the mango purée and blend again until well combined.
  4. You can add finely chopped mangoes at this stage. It will give way to mango bits in the ice cream when you eat. This is to add the extra mangooey goodness to the ice cream.
  5. Pour the ice cream into a container with a tight lid. Cover with the lid and freeze for at least 5 hours, preferably overnight.
  6. And there you have it ready. When you want to scoop it, let it sit out for a few minutes.
  7. Serve as is or garnish with mango chunks, mango crush, pistachios or almonds. J

Notes:

  1. You do not need to blend the ice cream after it has been prepared. No crystals will form provided the ice cream has been set in a container with a tight lid. This is an important step. You wouldn’t like ice crystals in the otherwise fabulous ice cream. I have tried a plastic container as well as my aluminium bread pan and they both worked great.
  2. Let the ice cream sit outside for 2-3 minutes before trying to scoop.
  3. Garnish with mango pieces, mango crush, slivers of pistachios or slivers of blanched almonds. But I bet you will be tempted to eat it straight out of the container.
  4. The taste may vary, depending on the mango used. Alphonso mangoes work the best when making this ice cream. The others can definitely be used as alphonsos are not always readily available. When using mangoes that have threads ingrained in them, it would be wise to strain the purée  through a wire mesh.
  5. The sweetness of the ice cream will vary depending on the type of mangoes used. Taste the mixture once you’ve combined all the ingredients. If you find that it isn’t as sweet as you’d like, you can either add more condensed milk or powdered sugar. Do not forget to mix it. You, however, do not need to blend it again.
  6. I use either a hand blender or a wire whisk to blend the ingredients. Both work great. It doesn’t need to be vigorously beaten, just whisk enough to blend the ingredients together.
  7. If the colour isn’t deep enough, don’t let it dishearten you. The taste will be great, rest assured. You can add food colouring if you want a deep colour. I personally wouldn’t change anything about this heavenly scoop of ice cream…Wait, not a scoop…I want more!
