Mango Ice Cream (Soft and Smooth)

Recently I said that I won't make anything with Mango unless I am bored of eating this fruit. Well, that day has come. Actually, I am still not bored to eat this King of Fruits, these days I am eating Mango for Lunch and Dinner. As my family from hometown visited us, they brought so many mangoes which are very tasty there (in Andhra) compared to Bangalore. Now these are all getting ripening faster than I am eating them. So I have to make something so that these will be put to good use. These days my mission is to load Abhi and Anvi with lot milk based dishes so that they get their dairy intake. (Oh yeah, it's a challenge for me to make them drink the milk as it is, so I have to use my sneaking techniques.). So as the recent Badaam Kulfi was such a hit for kids, today I wanted to try some thing in the same notes.... and that is Mango Icecream. and I have all the ingredients in my pantry, Ola!..Let's cook and chill with some Mango IceCream today. Here is the recipe, Enjoy!

Though I have seen several mango icecream recipes online, I have learned the effect of slow churning ice cream which makes it soft and smooth with out forming any ice crystals from Edible Entertainment by Kavi.

Milk - 2 cups ( 1/2 liter)
Corn Starch or Corn Flour - 2 Tbsp
Fresh Cream - 1 cup (250 ml)
Powdered Sugar - 1 cup
Fresh Mangoes  - 2 medium (or Mango Pulp - 1 Cup)

  1. Take 1/2 cup of milk and add corn starch, mix it very well with out forming any lumps, and keep it aside. 
  2. Boil the remaining 11/2 cup milk, until it becomes into 1 cup milk. And add 1/2 cup sugar and corn starched milk at the end. Turn off the heat and Let it cool.
  3. Meanwhile add 1/2 cup of sugar and cream in a medium bowl and whisk it (by hand) until the whipping cream forms. (it takes about 10 minutes). You can check out how to make the Whipping cream at home.
  4. Cut your Mangos into small cubes and make a puree in the blender or medium jar of mixie. That should yield 1 cup of Mango Puree.

Now you will have 3 mixtures. Condensed Milk with Corn Starch, Wipped Cream, Mango Puree.

Mix all the ingredients together and blend it well with electric blender. Nice foam forms.

You can transfer this into Aluminium vessel or in glass bowl and cover it with Aluminium foils and set it in the refrigerator. (put the cold setting to maximum).

After 2 hours take it out and you will see in the edges the ice crystals forms and the edges becomes firm and middle it still smooth. Now blend it again with electric mixer for 5 minutes until everything becomes smooth. Now close with the foil and keep it in the refrigerator.

After 2 or 3 hours, repeat the same step as above. I think this is the slow churning effect that ice creams stores use to get the cream and soft effect. This will be your last time. Be patient now, you are almost in the edge to taste the creamy mango ice cream.

Now Transfer it into your real container with lids (usually I store all my used ice cream bins, I have used them to store today). and keep it in the refrigerator and let it sleep overnight. Now you get into bed and dream about it, wake up the next morning and your creamy and soft Mango Icecream welcomes you for the sweet day!!

just top with some chocolate wafers or oreo cookies...
Now Dig in, feel the heaven! :-)

  • When you are storing, store in several small containers instead of one big container. That helps not to mix everything when you need to serve for small crowds. 
  • If you have ice cream or kulfi molds, you can make store in that, that makes it fun for kids to eat.
  • The color and sweetness depends on your Mango Pick. Pick mango that is rich in color for this recipe.
  • If the Mangoes are little sour or not that sweet, you may have to increase the sugar measurement. First taste the Mango puree and adjust the sugar based on that.

  21. First time here..mango ice cream looks creamy..never know that it is easy to make without an icecream maker..

    1. Very True, that the best thing with this recipe that with few handful known ingredients you can make this...

      And Welcome to Yum! Yum! Yum!, Ramya! Be in touch...

  22. I followed recipe and it never froze in my refrigerator as posted.

    1. Slow Frequent Churning( in the middle)and MAX cold setting in your refrigerator is the critical thing to get that texture. Heavy Cream also will help to set the ice cream firm. It was a test for my patience too when I was making it. Hopefully you will get the texture with one more try.



Thanks for visiting Yum! Yum! Yum!. I really appreciate your time in dropping a note for me. Your comments are truly motivating and feedback allows me to improve more to bring the best.
