Mango Ice-Cream

Mangoes are in season now. Bought 3kg of mangoes for RM10.00 from the market. Wanted to make mango pudding but ended up making mango ice-cream instead. We finished the rest of the mangoes. Really juicy and sweet. Everyone's favourite. My children have been 'complaining' that I have not made any ice-cream for quite some time. It's true. It's been awhile since I last made any ice-cream. If you have an ice-cream maker, try out this recipe of mine. The ice-cream turned out really creamy and delicious, with a slight taste of the lemons which really complement the sweetness from the mangoes. A wonderful combination. It is really easy. There's no cooking, cos there's no custard, cos there's no eggs! Simple and yummy! Here's the recipe. (I'm still thinking about the mango pudding, will have to buy some more mangoes and make some soon!).

Ingredients :
2 cups diced mango flesh (about 440gm)
1 lemon zest
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup icing sugar
130ml mango flavoured yoghurt (or plain)
300ml whipping cream

Method :
  1. Put mango cubes, lemon zest, lemon juice, yoghurt and icing sugar in blender and puree until smooth. (Adjust amount of icing sugar to taste, depending on sweetness of mangoes).
  2. Put mango puree in chilled bowl of ice-cream maker and churn for about 10 minutes until mango is mushy.
  3. Add whipping cream and continue churning for about 30 - 40 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Scoop into a container and freeze preferably overnight.
  5. To serve, take container from freezer and leave in chiller compartment of fridge for about 20 minutes to soften ice-cream before serving.
  6. Serve with thin slices of fresh mangoes or simply enjoy it as it is !


  1. It's still very cold here...but even that won't stop me craving for some good homemade ice cream, not to mention it's mango flavoured!

  2. I wish that the weather is a little cooler over here. It is blazing hot everyday! It's great to have homemade ice-cream around in the freezer!

  3. After reading your comment, I got to see your mangoes ice cream recipes. of my cooking friends made a creamy mangoes ice cream for me before with just thickened cream, puree mangoes and sugar. We believe that mangoes have a natural creamy texture and has not as much water content as other fruits and that will enhance the texture of an ice cream without addition of yolk. I did ask my husband before that if he want to eat mangoes ice cream but all agree that we prefer to eat fresh mangoes as it is...or unless we have too mangoes which is unlikely...there will never be surplus of mangoes in my home because they will be chomped off very quickly.
