I have lots & lots of memories attached to this wonderful recipe. Every summer my mother used to make homemade mango ice cream. We used to happily help her to make the mango pulp. It was such a fun activity. I remember she used to make two box full of mango ice cream which we used to polish off within no time. Most importantly, this recipe is very simple and needs only 4 ingredients to make it. It also tastes so much better than the ready made ice-creams! It has the same soft, creamy texture and you know that all the ingredients you’ve used are fresh and have no artificial added flavours.
It has all the goodness of the Alphonso mangoes. You can also enjoy the ice cream with freshly chopped mangoes or mango pulp.
Recipe for Homemade Mango Ice Cream
- 1 litre milk
- 5 tbsp sugar ( adjust the sweetness as per your liking)
- 4 tbsp milk powder
- Mango pulp made from 3 mangoes ( I used fresh Alphonso mangoes)
- In a deep bottom vessel mix the sugar, milk powder to the milk and bring it to a boil. Switch off the flame after the milk starts boiling.
- Keep the vessel away to cool.
- In the meanwhile make fresh mango pulp and add it to the cooled milk which is now at room temperature.
- Blend this and store it in the ice cream box. I used Tupperware box meant for making ice-creams. Leave it in the freezer for 3 hours.
- Remove it from the freezer after 3 hrs & blend the ice-cream. This procedure is done to avoid crystallization of the ice cream. Refreeze the ice-cream for 12-15 hrs. Remember the freezer should be at maximum temperature & the ice-cream is made in air tight box. My mother used to make the ice-cream in aluminum container with a lid.
- When you blend the ice-cream, it should be of the same consistency of that of a softy ice cream.
- If the ice-cream is not similar to softy ice cream, please leave it in the freezer until it reaches the correct consistence.
- If the ice-cream is too hard, leave it outside to melt for a while.
