Mango Ice Cream

"Here's another ice cream recipe; I added a couple of variations that you can try. Mango ice cream is popular in Hawaii; mango sorbet is also very tasty (unfortunately, I don't have a recipe for that one - hint, hint). The time does not include freezing time."

Ready In:
3 cups




  • Beat egg whites until frothy, then gradually beat in sugar.
  • Mix the mango puree with cream, then fold in egg whites.
  • Churn and freeze by hand or with an ice-cream maker.
  • As a variation, replace the cream with yogurt (you may need a little extra sugar).
  • Another variation is to omit the egg whites; replace the mango puree with 1 pound of seeded, peeled papaya and the juice of one lime.
  • Puree with one cup sugar, blend in the cream, and churn and freeze.

    Lovely! I added an additional chopped mango. Really very easy and special.

    Delicious! Not rich and heavy as egg yolk ice creams tend to be, but light and creamy. I do think though, that mango needs a little lemon juice added, when combined in creamy sauces, it brings the mangos own flavor out sharper. So I did add a spoonfull or two. Will do again.

    this is one of the better mango ice recipes i've tried. it's light and fluffy instead of custardy like a "traditional" ice cream. use mango pulp that you buy in a can from the indian store for a nice mango punch (vs using fresh which is going to taste more muted bc it's less concentrated).

    This recipe tasted more like cream than mango and I added a half a cup more mango than the recipe called for. Instead of lemon juice I added lime juice, which is better at bringing out the fruit flavor. The result was good but not very mango.

    A friend of mine gave me a couple of cases of mangos...and I decided to make some ice cream. This was the 1st recipe that showed after I googled it and it's a keeper! Easy...and I had the ingredients on hand! I did add the lemon and a pinch of salt. Will make it again!

    Easy and delicious. I used Splenda instead of sugar & yogurt instead of heavy cream, reducing the carbs & fat content. Only problem, using my variations, was that it froze so hard I couldn't get a spoon in it to scoop it out!! I had to let it thaw out for awhile. Nice cool treat for our hot summers!
