Mango Ice Cream


Today is Reveal Day for Secret Recipe Club. This month I was assigned to Simply.Food. Nayna's blog is vegetarian and there are a lot of great recipes to choose from - because I can't quite give up on summer (especially since it was still in the 80s this weekend!) I chose Mango Ice Cream. I love mangoes - and I had a bag of frozen mango chunks in the freezer so this was the perfect recipe to use them in.

This is a very easy recipe to make, and very tasty to eat! I think it would be especially good as a closing course for a Thai or Indian meal. Next time I make this, I may also substitute coconut milk for the half and half. Coconut and mango - yum! I used my ice cream maker for this, but there are directions in the original recipe for making this ice cream without an ice cream maker.

Start by combining the sweetened condensed milk, mango chunks (thaw them if they're frozen)


and half and half


in a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Then add to the ice cream maker,


and churn according to your maker's directions, likely about 15 minutes. Transfer the ice cream to a freezer safe container, and freeze for another 4 hours or so until it's your desired consistency.

Enjoy!

  7. I'm a huge mango lover and always say I love them too much to make anything with them--I'm a mango purist. Well, I have to say I'd make an exception for this ice cream.
