Dairy Free Mango Ice Cream

April 18, 2013

This dairy free mango ice cream conjures up memories of my childhood. My Tutu Bee had a gigantic mango tree in her front yard that was the envy of the neighborhood.

Mr. Jack Frost Be On Your Way!

It’s been a long, cold, windy six months and we are pining for warmer weather. For the last two days we’ve been snowed in. School was cancelled and roads were a mess, so we hunkered down and plotted.

How can we speed old Mr. Jack Frost on his way?” I asked the kids.

Let’s make ICE CREAM!” they cheered.

So we did. And for good measure we added an extra dose of the tropical love—mango and coconut.

Dairy Free Mango Ice Cream

Cannonballs and Mango Ice Cream

This dairy free mango ice cream conjures up memories of my childhood. Tutu Bee had a gigantic mango tree in her front yard that was the envy of the neighborhood.

Summers with my cousins at Wailupe Circle were a highlight of childhood. We’d spend hours out on the pier (in the background above) dangling our feet off of the diving board and cannonballing as high as we could and splashing down into the deep blue.

Summer visits always coincided with mango season—and that meant churning up gallons of mango ice cream.

Dairy-Free Mango Ice Cream

I make my ice cream lower in sugar by adding stevia. Feel free to replace the stevia with your favorite sweetener, to taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 (14 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk
  • 2 cups mango puree (I use this one, found where Hispanic groceries are sold)
  • 2 tablespoons honey or granulated sugar
  • 1 dropper of my favorite liquid stevia concentrate (or and more sweetener to taste)
  • 1/2 heaping teaspoon guar gum

Instructions

  1. Add ingredients to blender container; cover and blend until smooth.
  2. Refrigerate (or stick in freezer) until chilled through.
  3. Add to 1.5 quart ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions OR pour into popsicle molds for pops.

Notes

Using fresh mango? If you would like to use fresh mango, I'd suggest chopping and simmering the mango with a little water to help break down the pesky fibers in the flesh. Simmer it for a bit, let cool, and then puree.

Oh, how I love mango ice cream! I've made Debi's (Hunter's Lyonesse) recipe before using fresh puree. It was great. Yours looks fabulous, Lexie, and I'll definitely be looking for that mango puree. That would be much eaiser to deal with. 🙂 Tell your kiddos that they are brilliant and that we can all appreciate this "sunny" ice cream today. 😉

I totally need to make ice cream. Maybe that would urge Jack Frost to leave Wisconsin, too! (I'm glad we at least haven't had snow. That's a plus!) 🙂

This looks amazing Lexie. I cannot believe the snow you guys have gotten this year. I don't miss it one bit and I don't envy you. I would say if this ice cream can't get the sun and warmer temps out, I don't know what can 🙂

I just discovered coconut-based ice cream – amazing! I made a batch with pineapple, and now mango is next on my list. This week I made a dairy free ice cream birthday cake that turned out delish – here's a link http://lifeovereasy.com/ice-cream-cake-easy-pie/ I think I have A LOT of coconut ice cream in my future – yum!

Mango's bring back such gorgeous memories for me too, growing up in South Africa. We had them in our back garden, and we used to eat them in the pool, and when the juice and furry bits got all stuck to our faces and fingers we would just dip under the water… Aaaah memories, thanks for the flash back! Just waiting for it to warm up and then I'll have a bash at this recipe, it looks amazing! xx
