Come APRIL i am reminded of 2 things - summer vacations & mangoes (the king of fruits) and of late an addition to this is my hubby's birthday which falls in the month of april.I am no longer in school so no more summer vacations but mangoes - they are always there!!I am a mango connoisseur. So my love for mangoes never never fades.

Even in terms of nutrition Mangoes has a lot of health benefits.It contains a stomach-soothing enzyme -so very good for your tummy. It also contains plenty of fiber, vitamins A and C, and potassium. One mango has about a hundred calories with no cholesterol and half of the necessary daily fiber.

I love to eat this fruit as it is but sometimes you need a change in the form you have them.

Now that happened to me - i felt like having Mango ice cream and the search started...

I googled a lot in search of some good mango ice cream recipes, and zeroed on to mango ice cream recipe of Spicy Chilly b'coz it was egg free and guilt free - i mean no cream used in the recipe . I followed the recipe with slight modification -

  • I pureed the pulp from mangoes instead of using the canned ones.
  • I did not add the fresh cream as the ice cream mix was already thick enough, and I did not find any ice formation.
  • Used milk powder.
I got to eat this eggless ice cream with less guilt as it was minus the whipping cream which most recipes call for.And i must say i relished it.Thank you Bharathy very much for this yummy recipe. This is a keeper for sure.
Mango puree-->1 cup
Water-->1 cup
Milk powder-->6 tbsp
Corn flour-->1 tbsp
Sugar-->3/4 cup
Milk-->1/3 cup

1)Mix the milk powder & water.See to it no lumps are formed.

2)Pour this into a heavy bottom pan & reduce the quantity till the whole mixture thickens i.e., reduce to a quater of the original quantity.
3)Dissolve the sugar and simmer for a few more minutes on low flame. The consistency should be like that of condensed milk.
4)Now in another container dissolve the cornflour with cold milk thorougly.See to it no lumps are formed.
5)Now add this cornflour milk mixture to the boiling -milk powder sugar mixture and keep stirring all the time to avoid lumps.
6)Simmer again till you reach a thicker consistency.Remove this from stove top & allow it to cool

7)Now mix in the mango puree to the cooled mixture and pulse this mixture using the blender.
8)Transfer this mixture to a container with lid & refrigerate it.
9)When it is half frozen -remove this mixture and whip it in the blender.Now pour back this mixture into the same container and re freeze it till it hardens.
10)Once done --Scoop them & ENJOY!!
