Mango ice cream


I’ve been holding on to this photo since the summer. I actually made this last summer but never had the time to post it.

Mangoes are very popular in northern India and invariably would be the favorite fruit of one and all in the summers! It’s known as the king of fruits. Needless to say mango ice cream is also very popular! Last summer we got really good mangoes at Costco and it was those mangoes that motivated me to try mango ice cream at home! I’m happy to report that the experiment turned out to be very successful – in fact it had repeated success. The ice cream was a big hit!

You do need a ice cream maker for this recipe.


  • 1-11/2 cups mangoes, pureed. The slender mangoes – typically labeled champagne mangoes in costco – worked better. The variety of mangoes which is fat has more fiber and results into a lot of fiber in the ice cream. Roughly 2 mangoes yielded this quantity of puree.
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 3/8 cup sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream


  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Chill the mixture in the fridge for a few hours. If your cream and milk were cold to begin with and the mixture is cold enough then you can skip this.
  3. Freeze according to the directions of your ice cream maker.
