This easy mango “ice cream” has only two ingredients, but is it pinworthy?

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Pinteresting challenges|Recipes and Food

Edited to add: Awhile back I decided to take a closer look at some of the items I’ve bookmarked via Pinterest and actually DO something with them instead of admiring them. This is the second in the series so far.

Spoiler alert: If you’re looking for a healthy treat to whip up this weekend, this mango ice cream is it. No ice cream maker required!

When I pinned this idea originally, I figured that if this mango “soft serve” was anything like the banana version it was going to be a winner.

This quick mango ice cream recipe

I can’t even call this a recipe, because all you need is:

– two cups of frozen mango cubes
– two tablespoons of whipping cream

Let the mango sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before pulverizing it in your food processor. Add the whipping cream near the end as the mango is reaching a creamy stage (you will need to scrape down the sides a few times). You can add sweetener but it was plenty sweet for us. It serves two, and it was a lovely snack to enjoy on the back porch. I might even make my next batch for a summery breakfast.

Soooo… was this recipe pin worthy? I say YES!

Is it pinworthy?

Want to follow my recipe board on Pinterest? You can do so right here. And if you try this recipe yourself, don’t forget to let me know! I’d love to hear how your batch of mango “ice cream” turned out.

FYI, this does NOT work in a high powered blender, lol. I’ll try the food processor next time!

I would have assumed this would have worked in a blender. Weird! We used a food processor and had no issues.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
