Mango Mood #7 - Homemade Mango Ice Cream

Mango icecream2

The hidden kid in me loves icecreams a lot. The urge for icecreams has not changed even after growing up ;)

I admit that my most favorite flavor is chocolate when it comes to icecreams but I do enjoy such seasonal flavors too.

It was exciting to make icecream at home and I enjoyed the entire process. Hope you all remember my strawberry icecream which was made with custard powder too.

The challenging part was to click pics of the melting icecream. Oh my god! I really wonder why I choose to do the photoshoot at 12pm this day!! ;) Somehow managed to capture decent photographs.

I am sure all of you would have enjoyed mangoes this season just like how I did :) In fact I had a over dose of yellow this season. But I am happy to have done this lovely series with mangoes and would end it up here with this special homemade mango icecream for you all :)

Ingredients:

Milk - 1 + 1/2 cups
Sugar - 10 tsp
Custard powder(vanilla or mango flavor) - 2 1/2 tbsp
Mango puree - 1 cup

Method:

Take few spoons of milk(from the 1 cup of milk) in a small bowl and dissolve the custard powder in it. Add sugar to the remaining milk and allow it to boil. Simmer the stove and add the custard powder mixture while stirring it continuously. Once it starts thickening, remove from flame and allow it to come to room temperature.

Peel and chop mangoes roughly. Blend the pieces to make puree. Add 1/2 cup of milk along with it and blend again. Now add the above prepared custard and blend well.

Transfer to a freezer proof box and chill it in the freezer for atleast 3 hours. Then remove from freezer and blend it again in the mixie. Repeat this process after every one hour for 3 times.

Scoop out the ice cream and serve it on wafer cones or along with chopped mangoes :)

Happy making :) Enjoy eating :)

Note:

Once the custard is ready, keep stirring it until it comes to room temperature. Don't allow it to set hard. This will help in making the texture of the icecream smooth and creamy.

Use mangoes that are not too fibrous. I choose alphonso mangoes for making this icecream.

Tips:

You can add some nuts on top to make it exotic.

If you would be consuming the icecream on the same day, chop small pieces of mangoes and mix it along with the icecream before it sets to get chunks of mango in between :)

Grate some dried mango bar(Naturo mango bar) on top of the scoop for garnishing.
