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)


  • 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


  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
