Introduction: 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

    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.

    Question 1 year 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.

    Sorry for the delay; yes I'm sure it would be perfectly fine to substitute it with mango pulp! Just account for the extra liquid content of the mango pulp - I'm not sure what the consistancy is for that...

    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!
