Homemade mango ice cream drizzled with butterscotch sauce and topped with crushed pistachios all piled into a delicious cookie cup. This fresh mango ice cream recipe will have you screaming for more. 🙂
I'm proud to be partnering with Milk Means More to bring you this recipe, all opinions are mine.
Nothing says summer like ice cream. In our family, we love to make Sundays about sundaes, or at least about ice cream. 🙂
Many years ago we invested in one of those ice cream makers. Ya know the ones that look like a big wooden bucket on the outside?
Sometimes we opt for something a little healthier, this 4 ingredient Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana ice cream is one of our favorites, and don't miss Strawberry Nice Cream.
I keep seeing "no churn" ice cream all over the internet. To be honest, it doesn't really matter to me whether its churned or not--I just want to eat ice cream, but, it definitely had me intrigued, so I wanted to try it out.
All of my research turned up a basic recipe with just a few ingredients, and then you can add flavor or mix ins. So it's pretty low maintenance and the results are fabulous!
I tried out a few different versions of this fresh mango ice cream recipe. In one version I left chunks of fruit. In another version, I swirled pureed mango throughout, and in the last version I just blended everything together.
As you can see from the picture, the last one was our favorite. When I left whole fruit or even swirled in puree', the fruit tended to be a bit icy in texture. Not bad at all, we just preferred it blended.
The options are endless in this basic no churn recipe, so if you like low maintenance, you'll be cranking out all sorts of flavors! Cookie dough, mint chocolate chip, strawberry, peanut butter... so many to try! What's your favorite flavor of ice cream?
Since we did a Sundae this time, I thought it would be fun to create an edible bowl. This is just a basic cookie dough recipe, but you bake it in a muffin pan and press them down to form the cup. Watch the video to see how it's done.
You could fill them with so many things besides ice cream. Who doesn't love an edible bowl? Plus, no clean up! 😀
