Mango Ice Cream
Mango ice cream is a delicious treat for summer. If mangoes are in season you should definitely try making fresh home made mango ice cream.Creamy and rich mangoes add great flavor and taste to any dessert. This is an easy recipe if you have an ice cream maker.
Mango puree - 1 1/2 cup
Chopped mango- 3 tbs
Lemon zest- 1/3 tsp
Milk- 1 cup
Heavy cream 2 1/2 cup
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Make a puree of mangoes and allow it to chill.
Heat half of the cream and milk in a heavy bottom Do not allow it to boil. Beat egg yolks and sugar. Gradually add 1/3 of the milk into the egg mixture stirring continuously. Add this egg mixture to the milk and bring back to simmer whisking continuously. When the mixture thickens into custard form ( it should coat the back of the wooden spoon) switch off the flame and strain it to take off any lumps and you get a smooth silky custard. Cover with a cling wrap. It should touch the top of the custard and allow to cool.
Once the custard is in room temperature mix in the rest of the heavy cream,lemon zest, chopped mangoes and the mango puree. Allow this mixture to chill for at least two hours.
Set the tub of the ice cream maker to chill in the freezer ( best if it is left to chill over night). Add the mixture and blend in the ice cream maker till you attain the desired consistency. It will take about 20 minutes. Once done transfer to the freezer for about an hour and serve.
Note:if you are making it without the ice cream maker , mix the custard and the cream and puree transfer the mixture into a freezer safe bowl and put in the freezer. Take out after two hour and blend so the the ice pieces breaks. Put back in the freezer for another two hours and continue the same process one more time or till you get the desired consistency.
Hope you will all enjoy!
