No-Churn Mango Lime Ice Cream (Sugar-Free)




About: Michael's Test Kitchen - FOOD - SUGAR - RECIPES

It's getting warm over here! Time to make your favorite treat for a summer day: Ice Cream! Skip the sugar, and the tedious churning process (for those who don't have an Ice Cream maker).

(Check this recipe out on my food blog Michael's Test Kitchen )

Who says you need high sugar content to make ice cream? Obviously the texture is going to have to be a little different than regular ice cream, since we aren't churning it, and the sugar crystals do make a little difference. But it's worth it, especially since the only thing sweetening this ice cream recipe is the natural sugars from the mango, and a bit of added honey.

So go ahead, make it, and let me know what you think!

Step 1: Ingredients

¾ cup thawed mangoes

⅓ cup evaporated milk

Zest and juice of one lime

⅓ cup honey

12-ounce can coconut cream, chilled

1 cup heavy cream, chilled

Step 2: Blend It

Blend mangoes, evaporated milk, lime zest and juice, and honey in a blender, and set aside.

Step 3: Coconut Cream

Scoop the cream off the top of the can, discarding the liquid underneath.

Step 4: Heavy Cream

Add coconut cream with heavy cream in a medium bowl, and whip until stiff peaks form, after a couple of minutes.

Step 5: Mango Mix

Gradually add the mango mixture to the heavy cream mixture, folding in the heavy cream until completely combined.

Step 6: Freeze It

Place mixture in a freezer-safe loaf pan or other baking dish. Freeze overnight before serving.

Step 7: Enjoy!

Let sit at room temperature a bit before scooping

    Question 1 day ago on Step 2

    Oh, wow, this sounds delicious and I can't wait to try it.
    I know this is an entry in the frozen treats challenge, but I was wondering, as you blend the thawed mango, would it be ok to substitute tinned mango pulp, please? I have a couple of large tins in the cupboard, and have been looking for recipes.

    If you take it out of the freezer before it is 'solid' and stir it up then put it back to freeze. You will get a smoother texture as you will break down the ice crystals.

    This looks delicious! However, this recipe is Not "Sugar Free". You said, "natural sugars from the mango, and a bit of added honey." Sugar is sugar is sugar. Whether it's from mangoes, honey or cane. Even regular white Cane Sugar is natural, since it is a plant. So, there is definitely sugar in this recipe. Good luck on the contest. I'm voting for you.

    Thanks! Yes that's what I've heard alot and I sort of agree with that, although some studies claim that not all sugar is equal, and different sources are processed differently...but yeah I agree with you. Thanks for the vote!
