Mango Ice Cream
Please vacuum the floor beforehand ! hee hee
I haven't eaten ice cream since October last year .
I know ! I missed half of my life tsk ! heh !
But then who wants to eat ice cream when it's about 15° outside ?
Now , now ! Most of you that resides where 10° is just ho hum will smirk at this but then I'm from the tropics where they're not selling puffed jacket or maybe they're selling it now ?! ^_-
I love winter here in Hongkong , partly because I can cover up my unmentionables hahahaha And just to let you know that , of course , ice cream shops here still thrives during winter and no , they're not selling it at half price hee hee . Maybe I'm the only one who doesn't like to eat ice cream during winter
So , as summer approaches , I'll start sweating like a pig *sigh* but then I can make ice cream to my heart's content . I'll still drool when I check out Haagen-Dazs or Ben and Jerry's but as it's $28/scoop ( don't know if the price's still the same ) I'll rather buy 1L of whipping cream , which is cheap , by the way and make different flavor . Hey ! I'm cheap ! hee hee
This is a strawberry ice cream recipe , I just used mango .
Recipe from Desserts for Beginners by Peggy Wong
180 grams fresh mango puree
60 grams sugar
2 egg yolks
120 grams whipping cream
60 grams milk
1/2 tsp lemon juice
I added some mango pieces
* Whisk egg yolks and sugar until pale yellow .
* Heat milk in a pan until warm ; pour half of the hot milk into the egg yolks , whisking as you add to prevent curdling . Return the mixture to the saucepan and stir with wooden spoon until thickened . Set aside to cool .
* Mix lemon juice to mango puree and fold this to the egg mixture . Cool completely and put into the fridge to chill .
* Add the whipping cream to the cold egg mixture , mix until well combined and pour into the ice cream maker ; spin until thick and creamy . Transfer into ice cream container and layer some mango pieces and freeze until firm , about 4 hours or overnight
*** If you're not using an ice cream maker , use handheld mixer to beat the whipping cream until stiff and fold this to the cold mixture into two portions . Freeze mixture for an hour until half frozen ; then scrape the mixture and beat using a handheld mixer , in high-speed , until smooth but not melted . Repeat this 2-3 times to improve texture ; then freeze until firm .
*** Check out some icy concoctions at Sugar Puff , she didn't use an ice cream maker and she made different yummy flavors .
I love ice cream and I remember I had my banana ice cream when I was in US another one was in HK both also during the winter time. Cool huh?ReplyDelete

It is already getting warm here, not springtime warm but summer warm! However, it is a great time for those frosty desserts. Mango ice cream does sound pretty delicious and your picture does make my mouth water! Stay cool Anne and enjoy your ice cream!ReplyDelete
The weather here's not summery yet but these past few days it's above 25°C , so that's an excuse to break out my ice cream maker hee heeDelete
i remember there was one time i had ice cream when it was i think around 12degress and the wind was blowing strong, i just cant stand the coldness and not able to finish the ice cream, it was just too cold eating ice cream during that time. I sure wld love to make my own ice cream!ReplyDelete
It's fine if you're inside the mall or shop while eating it but outside ?! Brrrrrrrr hahahahaDelete
I laughed reading your caption of your first pic! The weather now at Melbourne is cooling down and we are still eating ice cream every nite after our dinner and I reckon it is perfectly normal to eat ice cream even though it is winter :DReplyDelete
Your mangoes ice cream looks superb...Forget the vacuum. Just eat and clean up later :D
Zoe , the floor's a nice bet as it's a bit brighter there hahahahaDelete
Yum! Mango ice cream is my all time favorite! I can eat it regardless of the weather.ReplyDelete
Can't wait for sweet mangoes to be in season again so I can make mango ice cream again! I bought some last week and they're still kinda sour...
Tina , actually , I want it to be more yellow in color but the mango was muted by the cream . Will add more mango puree next time :DDelete
I love mango in any treat and this ice-cream seems to be calling out my name ;-) The texture looks perfect and love the chunks of mango in it. Delicious post!ReplyDelete
