Mango ice cream is a delicious summer treat. However, most store-bought mango ice creams are filled with artificial flavors and preservatives. Homemade mango ice cream is much healthier and can be just as creamy and delicious as store-bought stuff. Making your own mango ice cream at home also means you can control the amount of sugar and other ingredients that go into it. Here is an easy, quick recipe for making homemade mango ice cream from scratch at home, followed by some variations to try out.

The Easiest Homemade Mango Ice Cream Recipe

The easiest mango ice cream recipe starts with ripe, fresh mangos or mango puree. Ripe mangos will have lots of flavor and sweetness, making them perfect for this recipe. You can peel the mangos before blending them for the ice cream, or leave the peel on for added fiber and nutrients.

If you are using unripe mangos, you can add a bit of sugar and let them ripen in a paper bag for a couple of days before blending them. Unlike some mango ice cream recipes that use heavy cream and eggs, this mango ice cream recipe also requires fresh ripe bananas, coconut milk, and gelatin.

You do not need an ice cream maker for this recipe! You just puree in your food processor and use the frozen bowl variation of this recipe.

How to Make Homemade Ice Cream

To make mango ice cream at home, start by placing the chopped ripe mangos, frozen ripe bananas, and coconut milk in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, then add the optional vanilla extract.

Blend again until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Pour the ice cream base into a container and let it chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours or overnight. You can top with whipped cream if you want an extra treat!

  • 1 frozen banana

Pro Tips for Making the Best Mango Ice Cream recipe

Here are a few tips to help you make the best mango ice cream recipe at home.

Mangos: Choose ripe mangos that are yellow-orange in color with soft skin. Avoid unripe mangos, which will not have as much sweetness or flavor. You should not use canned mango purees or a pulped fruit. That will have different results. Make pulpy, less juiced or less fibrously sweet mangoes. If you have a mango that is too fibrous then put it into a strainer. Avoid using juicy varieties of fruit or slice mango slices and separate the juice first, which is used only for this recipe. It’s best if you find mango pulp. Heavy cream: Apply heavy cream sometimes called whipping cream. The fat contained in the cream must not exceed 36 per cent. Some days I have found cream that contains 40 percent fat. You’ll use it as you wish. Alternatively, you can get a fresh cream that is 30% fat.

Use a blender to mix the ice cream ingredients together. You can also use a KitchenAid stand mixer with a whisk attachment for this recipe.

Once the ice cream is done churning, transfer it to a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least three hours before serving.
