Mango Ice-cream

This light creamy ice-cream is deceptively easy to make. It uses no ice cream maker and yet you get a lovely soft creamy texture. There is something special about the king of fruits… sweet-scented and aromatic, it imparts a luscious creamy texture to this heavenly dessert. Serve it with chocolate shavings or chips as chocolate and mango are flavors that complement each other beautifully.

You need to plan ahead before you start with this recipe. If you start during the morning, you can have this ice cream as a dessert after your dinner.

This post is my contribution to the Mango Mela, an event hosted by Srivalli of Cooking for all Seasons.

Recipe adapted from tarladalal.com

Serves 4.

Here are the ingredients that are required for this delicious ice cream..
1½ cups ripe alphonso mangoes, around 2, peeled and chopped
2 to 3 tablespoons sugar
½ can sweetened condensed milk, 200 gms
2 cups full fat milk
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method
Blend the mangoes with the sugar into a purée in a liquidiser.

Combine the condensed milk, milk, puréed mangoes, lemon juice and mix well.

Pour the mixture in a shallow freezer proof plastic container. Cover and freeze till slushy, for about 2 hours.

Pour the mixture into a deep vessel and blend using a hand mixer, or you can even use a whisk, but thats going to take lot of your time. Blend till it is smooth and creamy.

Transfer the blended mixture back to the plastic shallow container. Cover and freeze again till slushy and follow this step one more time and you're done.
Cover and freeze till it is firm. Shift it into the refrigerator 45 minutes before you serve.



Scoop and serve.



Tips
The lemon juice is added to enhance the flavour of the mangoes. If you find that the mangoes you're using are a little sharp,
Do not add the lemon juice.

Have a great week!
