Mango Yogurt Ice Cream

I had a big imported mango that Hubby bought from NTUC Finest at an exorbitant price. What made it worse was that it did not ripe evenly and only one side was ripe while the other parts were still "green". Hubby took one slice and decided that this mango is not sweet and therefore doomed for the thrash bin.

Coming from a background where things should not go to waste especially food, I salvaged the mango in time and kept it in the fridge for my mango experiments.

One of it was this - Mango Yogurt Ice Cream. No raw eggs required and no ice cream maker necessary.

I halved the recipe and managed to fill a nice Island Creamery tub with that portion. Leaving some mango cubes in there for the extra oomph factor. I did not have mango flavored yogurt but made do with the plain one in my fridge and omitted mango essence. It worked well. Will definitely try this recipe with other leftover fruits or if I am up to experimenting - teh tarik, coffee or some homemade caramel next time.



Mango Yogurt Ice Cream
(Makes 1 litre)

Ingredients
300g fresh mangoes
100g sugar
100g plain yogurt
200g whipping cream

Method
  1. Blend mangoes and sugar till it becomes a puree
  2. Mix yogurt with puree
  3. Whisk whipping cream till stiff 
  4. Fold mango mixture to whipped cream
  5. Pour into a container and freeze it overnight till firm. (I suggest freezing it till the sides are firm and center is still soft. Then whisk it to incorporate more air. Then redo this again for 2 more times before freezing till firm to have a more creamy effect)

  2. Hi Mel, yah it was not very creamy at first. After some research, I recommend to do it the more troublesome way i.e. to whisk it a few times whenever it is semi-frozen. Apparently that's how homemade ice creams are made for even other recipes. Go try! It's worth it.

  3. Looks good! Yes, whisk it a few times can make it more creamy. I have another ice cream recipe which is already very creamy without the extra whipping. Let me experiment it a few more times first. :)
