Coconut Mango Ice Cream


I have been seeing so many posts about ice cream lately so I have been craving it like crazy.  So I got a little creative and this is what I came up with. I have a hard time with a lot of dairy (milk) so I use coconut milk or soy milk whenever I can. We always have milk here because Rikard is one of those tall glass of milk guys… You know what I am talking about, one of those people who like to have a big glass of milk with a dessert. YUCK.  Just watching him drink his milk brings the heaves on!


I know I am weird, but milk and I have beef! Haha I love yogurt and cheese but there is something just really gross to me about milk. What? Don’t judge. I still cook with it! Ok enough of that… You are going to really like this it was so easy and so delicious. 

I don't have an ice cream maker and this was still creamy. 

Coconut Mango Ice Cream

Ingredients
1 can                Sweetened condensed milk
1 can                Coconut Milk
2 cups               Canned or frozen mangos (pureed)
Directions
1.  Mix all ingredients and pour into a freezer safe bowl. Freeze.
2.  Every 30 minutes for the first 3 hours stir the mixture. Enjoy.

  2. Coconut milk does make a great substitute for heavy cream, I could just freeze and eat it by itself. Mangoes and coconut do make a tasty pairing. Thanks for sharing the recipe for this frosty treat!

  12. Sounds like really good ice cream! Btw, I feel the same way about milk--icky by itself. In the meantime, my husband and daughter can drink it by the gallon. :)

  16. I stirred it with a spoon, but I bet a fork would fluff it up more. To be honest, I forgot about it after stirring it 3 times.... Woops! It still worked out great.
    I really appreciate all of your nice comments and support! Xoxo
