Why You’ll Love This Mango Ice Cream Recipe

No Shortcuts – You’ll find many different recipes for mango ice cream that use just 3 ingredients or are no-churn, and promise to be super simple and perfect. I’m not convinced. This recipe uses all of the necessary ingredients (there are just 7) to make the most delicious, and creamy mango ice cream.

Bright, Fruity Flavor – Fresh mangoes at the peak of ripeness plus a bit of lemon juice give this Mango Ice Cream its amazing flavor.

Easy to Make – Philadelphia style ice cream recipes don’t use an egg custard base like French ice cream recipes do. This means that there is no cooking on the stove required, and therefore the ice cream base is ready sooner since you don’t have to chill it.

Egg Free – Some churned ice cream recipes require egg yolks to create a creamy custard base, but not this one. Mango ice cream is perfectly creamy without a single egg in sight.

No Chemicals – Making your own Mango Ice Cream from scratch allows you to control the ingredients that go into it. Store bought ice creams are often filled with preservatives that aren’t necessarily needed.

Sugar – Granulated white sugar is the simple option here, and is the most effective way to get the right sweetness and the perfect texture in your ice cream. We will use sugar to make the mango puree, and also in the ice cream base.

Lemon Juice – a squeeze of fresh lemon adds a bright flavor, plus it helps to keep the mango its beautiful yellow color.

Heavy Cream – I don’t think we can call it ice cream without adding heavy cream to the mix.

Whole Milk – A blend of both whole milk and heavy cream creates the perfect creamy texture.

Vanilla Extract – Vanilla elevates the flavor of the milk and cream.

Salt – A bit of kosher salt balances the sweetness and makes your mango ice cream perfect.

How to Make Mango Ice Cream From Scratch

  1. Create mango puree by adding the diced mango ¼ cup of granulated sugar and lemon juice to a food processor. Blend until smooth and set aside. You will need about 2 cups of mango puree.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining granulated sugar, heavy cream, whole milk, vanilla extract and kosher salt. Whisk for 2-3 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved into the mixture. You should not feel any grit if you rub the mixture together between two fingers.
  3. Add the mango puree to the milk mixture.
  4. Stir until fully incorporated.
  5. Churn the ice cream mixture in the bowl of your ice cream machine according to the manufacturer’s instructions until it is thick and the consistency of soft-serve ice cream. Mine took about 25 minutes.
  6. Spoon the ice cream into a shallow container or a loaf pan. Press plastic wrap of wax paper to the surface of the ice cream and freeze for at least 4 hours, or until solid.
  7. Let sit at room temperature for about 5 mintues before serving.

How to Store Mango Ice Cream

Your mango ice cream will stay fresh in the freezer for up to one month if stored properly. Store in an airtight container (we really like these reusable ice cream containers) with a piece of parchment paper or waxed paper pressed on top for up to one month.

Tips for making the best Mango Ice Cream recipe

Use quality ingredients – When making homemade ice cream, you’ll want to make sure you are using high quality ingredients for the best outcome.

Use Ripe Mangoes – Fresh and ripe mangoes will give you the best flavor, but you can use mango puree or frozen mangoes if that’s what you have access too.

Chill out – If possible, always start with chilled ingredients. This is important for homemade no-churn ice cream recipes and ice cream maker recipes. Also be sure that your ice cream maker bowl has been chilled until completely solid.

Don’t skimp on the fat – High fat milks and creams are essential when making homemade ice cream. Opting for a low-fat option often leads to icy ice creams and inconsistency in the texture.

Don’t go crazy with the add-ins – If you’re adding in additional ingredients, pick one or two and make sure they are chopped into pieces no larger than a blueberry or pea.Don’t skimp on the sugar – Sugar not only adds sweetness to homemade ice creams, it also helps with the texture. Sugar is essential for the creamy texture in ice cream.

No Churn Mango Ice Cream Directions

You can make creamy and delicious mango ice cream without an ice cream maker. Just follow these simple instructions.

Chill a shallow container or loaf pan in the freezer while you mix the ice cream ingredients.

Pour the ice cream mixture into the prepared pan and freeze for 3-4 hours. Stir the ice cream every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours to help add air. This will help create a creamy, smooth texture.

Mango Ice Cream Add-ins

Play up the tropical flavor of mangoes with some delicious additions to your mango ice cream.

Sweetened flaked coconut or crushed coconut cookies will be an amazing flavor paired with mango.

To add creamy sweetness, chopped white chocolate will do the trick.

A small amount of crushed pineapple swirled in would be delicious (too much will affect how the ice cream freezes, so go light), or use a pineapple ice cream topping instead.

Try some heat! Mango goes really well with spice. Consider sprinkling on a bit of chili salt or tajin spice either before freezing, or when serving. Cinnamon or cardamom will add a gourmet flavor too.

Can I make Mango Ice Cream with Frozen Mangoes?

Yes, frozen diced mango can be used to make this ice cream recipe. Allow the mango to thaw and drain the liquid from it before making the mango puree.

How to choose a ripe mango

The success of this ice cream recipe rests on the ripeness of your mangoes. If they aren’t ripe enough, you won’t get the amazing flavor that we’re looking for.

To choose a ripe mango, apply gently pressure to it. It should give slightly when squeezed. A ripe mango will also give off a sweet and fragrant aroma when it’s ready to eat.

You cannot rely on the color of a mango to determine ripeness.

If the mango feels too soft it may be overripe. Using an overripe mango for ice cream is not ideal, as the fruit can get fibrous and the flavor will be sweet, but more dull.

What Can I use if I don’t have a food processor?

Make mango puree using a high-speed blender if you don’t have a food processer. A hand blender should work too. The key is to break down the fruit as much as possible so that there are no large chunks of mango in the ice cream that will get hard and icy.

Why is my mango ice cream icy?

Icy fruit ice cream is usually a result of too much water in the recipe. Be sure that you drain away any liquid that comes off of frozen mangoes, and watch the water content if you’re using canned puree.

Why is Homemade Ice Cream So Hard to Scoop?

Directly out of the freezer, homemade ice cream will be too hard to scoop. This is because we haven’t added anything to it to keep it soft. Commercial ice creams often include extra ingredients to allow them to stay soft at freezer temperatures.

To get your homemade ice cream soft enough to scoop, simply allow it to sit on the counter for 5 minutes.
