My first taste and attempt at Gelato. Thought it was great but don't have anything to compare it to. Made it for guests who also thought it was fabulous. I also took another reviewers suggestion of making this with canned pineapple and we loved it.
I thought 1 c sugar might make it too sweet but not at all (although that depends on the sweetness of the mangoes used I guess). We didn't have the regular milk on hand (we drink 1%) so I use 3/4 c whipping cream + 1/2 cup half n half + 1 cup 1% milk. Mine turned out fluffy and silky (so more like regular ice cream than gelato). Nevertheless, it's delicious! P.S. It's also great with sweet coconut milk sauce.
As my two year old son says "nummy!" Great recipe, silky, rich and lots of mango flavor. I used 3 ataulfo mangoes, 1/2 of the sugar called for and substituted half & half for the cream to cut down on calories and I still love it!
Luscious gelato! Used mango slices from the jar--Dole?- which worked fine.
I subbed pineapple for mango and was great! Will make again, for sure!
