ICE CREAM TIPS
Even though this is a super easy-to-prepare coconut mango ice cream, there are some tips that can help you to make this a great ice cream recipe and a classic dessert. So check the list below to make this coconut mango ice cream even easier!
- Fruit: I made this recipe with canned mango pulp however, you can also use: mango puree, mango chunks, frozen mango, and fresh mango – ripe mangoes (with this last one you will have the additional step of peeling and cutting in chunks the fresh mango).
- Food processor/blender: in order to blend the ice cream ingredients you will need a food processor or blender. A normal food processor should be enough for this ice cream recipe; but, if you are using frozen mango it is better to use a high-speed blender (or large food processor).
- Container: I use a ceramic and glass container to place the mango coconut ice cream in the freezer. Another type of container that works really well is made of stainless steel. The last resource, if the other options are not available, would be a plastic container.
- Freezer or ice cream maker: I don’t have an ice cream machine and I made this recipe just using a freezer and the result was really good, so no need to go to the store and buy an ice cream maker, the freezer you have at home is more than enough for this recipe.
- Cooling times: my vegan ice cream was ready to enjoy after around 7hr in the freezer. If you use frozen mango to prepare this homemade ice cream you can reduce the cooling time to around 1 or 2hr. As I don’t have and didn’t use an ice cream maker I can’t give you times I’m afraid. If you would like to use an ice cream machine check the times in the manual as times can vary.
- Serving: when you remove the ice cream from the freezer it can be really hard; therefore, is advisable to remove it from the freezer around 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
