Mango ice cream recipe without an ice cream maker. There are many ways a mango ice cream is made. Over the years I have tried a few recipes and loved 2 simple methods of making this. To minimize the quantity of sugar and to keep the ice cream flavorful, use the best quality ripe mangoes that are deep in color. This way you will get bright, smooth and flavorful mango ice cream. I used the andhra popular variety banginapalli, you can use any sweet mangoes with deep color pulp.
I am sharing 2 different mango ice cream recipes on this post. The first one needs a hand mixer and the second one needs only a blender. Texture wise both are different and taste good. These 2 recipes are perfect even for those who don’t have whipping cream or looking for a low fat mango ice cream & can also be made with unrefined sugar.
The only 2 things I follow to get a best ice cream when made without a ice cream maker is to use high fats and avoid much of milk, juice or liquids as they tend to form ice crystals in the ice cream once it is set. This needs blending many more times to break the crystals.
This mango ice cream recipe also works well with coconut cream. Since we do not prefer milk and fruit combination much, sometimes I also make this using coconut cream. Do not use sour mangoes in this recipe, it may cause stomach problems.

How to make mango ice cream recipe – step by step photos
1. Wash and cube mango to pieces. I used about 1 and a half cups mango cubes. Add them to a blender jar.
2. Add sugar. Make a fine puree. Use sugar as needed depending on the sweetness of the fruit used.
3. The pulp turns thick and may also gets jammed in the blender since there is no water or juice added. Give a quick stir with a spoon. Set this aside.
4. Pour the cream to a bowl. I have not chilled the bowl and beaters as it is not very hot in the place where I live. If you are making this when the temperature is high, then it is good to use a chilled bowl and beaters.
5. Whip the cream until peaks. If you are using low fat cream then you may get soft peaks.
6. Do not over whip the cream, it tastes like butter after the ice cream is set.

7. Pour the mango puree.
8. Gently fold the mango puree with whipped cream. It should not be mixed vigorously otherwise the cream gets deflated and the ice cream may not turn light. Keep folding until the mango cream turns creamy and smooth.
9. Transfer to a freezer safe jar. Cover and freeze it until set. It may take about 8 to 12 hours to set depending on the fridge. You can also pour this to steel cups and insert a ice cream stick.
10. Scoop it to a serving bowl.
11. If the ice cream is too hard, then dip the scooper in hot water and scoop.
Garnish with sliced pistachios or cherries. Serve with your favorite toppings
