Homemade Mango Ice Cream: A Summer Treat

***No ice-cream maker necessary***

My semester is simply a few days away from coming to an end, and I like to celebrate the little things in life, and celebration is another excuse to indulge in something sweet. So to celebrate the beginning of hot, sticky days I’m thinking of a cold, summer treat? Perhaps ice cream?

Mango ice cream is one of my favorite ice cream flavors (along with chocolate, chocolate chip cookie dough, cappuccino chunky chocolate, and cookies ‘n cream. I may or may not really like chocolate).


Don’t let the words “homemade ice cream” intimidate you- I promise you do not need to purchase an expensive ice cream machine, or hand crank your ice cream for hours in a prehistoric-style ice cream churner. This recipe is painless and inexpensive! And ridiculously easy- it literally takes tres steps and tres ingredients to make this!

So are you ready?

1, 2, 3…go!

Homemade “1-2-3” Mango Ice Cream (thank you Mother dearest for the recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 1 (30 oz) can of kesar mango pulp
  • 1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk*
  • 1 (8 oz) tub of whipped topping (such as Cool Whip), thawed

Directions:

  1. Mix together mango pulp, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped topping until fully combined. Place in some sort of (big) plastic container/Tupperware with a lid.
  2. Freeze for at least 6-8 hours (preferably overnight).
  3. Eat it.

*Note: You can cut down on the sweetness (and calories) by using only half the can of sweetened condensed milk and still get a really yummy ice cream!

Didn’t I say three steps? When have I ever steered you wrong? 😉
(wait don’t answer that)

  1. Kesar is just one of the many types of mangoes 🙂 You can use whatever mango pulp your local Asian/Desi grocery store carries! If you would like to use raw mangoes, be sure to puree the fruit (without the pit & peel of course!) so you have a liquid to work with. You can buy kesar mango pulp here: http://www.amazon.com/Swad-Kesar-Mango-Pulp-Pack/dp/B00ACMUUW4/ref=sr_1_16?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1401763028&sr=1-16&keywords=kesar+mango+pulp
