This really is a creamy ice cream made without an ice cream machine.
Summer and mango season comes, ice cream is a must in my house. In summer season especially in India, the markets are flooded with mangoes so we make a good use of it be it raw or riped mangoes. Hence, make a lot of tasty and delicious dishes. So coming to the ice cream, my little one is very fond of ice creams. But this year due to the corona virus pandemic, I was ignoring to his request for ice creams. But finally I decided to make for him atleast once and serve him before the mango season goes off.
So I made the 3 ingredients mango ice cream which is a super easy one. Also I am glad I could photographed it for my blog which I never got the opportunity to do it before. Photographing ice creams is very critical. We need to be quick and act fast since the ice cream starts melting instantly specially in place with high humidity. So this time I decided to shoot and tried my best. Hope you like it!
Mango ice cream is one of the most popular variant of ice cream recipe especially during the summer season or mango season. So when summer approaches and the seasonal fruits hits the market, I buy those fresh fruits and make homemade ice creams and jams.
Rather than buying out from shops, I prefer to make it at home with fresh mangoes, because nothing can beat the taste of fresh and aromatic mangoes in the ice cream without any artificial flavors and colours. The recipe is pretty simple and taste ridiculously delicious. I’m sure you will love every bite of this deliciousness!
What are the ingredients to make this easy mango ice cream?
Let’s talk ingredients!
Mango: I have used alphonso mango for making this ice cream. It is the best variety to make ice cream or any dessert. Alphonso mango are creamy and sweet. It usually gives a creamy texture and natural sweetness to the ice cream or any desserts. The flavor is also very aromatic. If alphonso variety is not available use a good variety mango which is not sour and gives a better texture and flavor.
Whipping cream: I have used 30% fat Amul whipping cream for making this ice cream. Any heavy or whipping cream is important and necessary for making ice creams. The fats in the cream makes the ice cream taste rich and more creamy. The original ice cream recipes will always contain heavy cream or whipping cream. Use any brand heavy or whipping cream.
Sugar: Adding sugar depends upon the variety of mango used in the recipe. We need not add a lot of sugar if the mango has natural sweetness. Sugar can be adjusted just to suit your taste bud. Another reason for adding less sugar is some whipping cream has already sugar in it. So if your mango and cream are sweet enough, you can skip adding sugar or add just as required.
How to make this easy mango ice cream?
Make a mango puree: Wash the mangoes and peel the skin. Dice them into cubes. Blend them into a fine puree along with sugar without adding water using a mixie or blender. Taste the puree and add sugar if required. This step is not required if you are using g canned mango puree. You just need to taste the sweetness and add sugar if required.
Whipping the cream: Before starting off make sure you chill the whipping cream for sometime; this will help to whip the cream nicely and pretty faster. Add the whipping cream in a mixing bowl. Whip the cream using a hand mixer or a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, until soft peaks form. You can also use a manual hand whisk if you don’t have them but it will take little longer time.
Mixing the ice cream mixture: Add the mango puree to the whipped cream and mix them just until they are well combined. Do not overmix them. It will just take a minute or two.
Freezing the ice cream mixture: Pour the combined mango and cream mixture into a freezer-friendly container, level it nicely and cover it with a lid. Freeze the ice cream for 7-8 hours or overnight until it is set well. The freezing time depends upon the kind of refrigerator you have. If your refrigerator is quick freeze it will take lesser time to get freezed.
Serving the ice cream: Remove from the freezer and let it stand for about 3-5 minutes to let it slightly soften. Use an ice cream scooper or a multi purpose scoop to scoop them. Scoop and serve!
How to make this vegan?
To make this mango ice cream vegan, you can non-dairy whipping cream, coconut cream, full fat coconut milk, almond milk etc.
Can store bought canned mango puree be used to make this ice cream?
Absolutely yes! The measurement remains the same. You just need to taste the puree and check the sweetness and add sugar if required.
What kind of mango should I use?
Alphonso mango is the best to make ice cream or any kind of desserts because of its creaminess, sweetness, natural aromatic flavor and rich taste. If alphonso mango is not available you can also use any other better variety mango which is sweet and will give creamy texture.
Can add-ons be added to the ice cream?
Yes why not! You can add the add-ons as per your taste buds. You can add candied fruits, dry fruits, nuts like cashew, pistachios, almonds. The ice cream taste great with the add-ons giving a nutty texture and crunch in every scoop of it. Also I like the addition of chocolate chunks or chocolate chips to the ice cream. You can use any variety of chocolate be it milk, dark or white chocolate. All these addition takes the ice cream to another level.
