Tropical Mango Breeze Ice Cream Recipe
- 2 cups heavy cream, chilled
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 large, ripe mangoes (ripe mangoes give slightly when you give them a gentle squeeze)
- 6 jackfruit bulbs (you can find canned or jarred jackfruit at most local grocery stores)
- coconut shavings
- sweetened condensed milk
- crushed pistachios
- fresh mint
Step 1: Whip the Cream
Step 2: Puree the Mango
Peel and dice the mango removing the large pit in the center. Add the diced mango and sugar to a blender, blend until smooth.
Step 3: Dice Up the Jack Fruit
Slice jackfruit into strips then dice into small chunks.
Step 4: Stir the Mango & Jackfruit Into the Cream
Pour the mango puree & jackfruit chunks into the whipped cream, and stir until well combined.
Step 5: Churn
Add the mixture to your ice cream maker, and churn according to the manufacturer’s specifications. This can take up to 20 minutes.
Step 6: Freeze
Add to a freezer-safe storage container. Freeze until the ice cream is set. This can take up to 3 hours.
Step 7: Add Toppings and Serve
Use coconut flakes, sweetened condensed milk, crushed pistachios and top with a sprig of mint!
Tip: A mortar and pestle is a great tool for crushing pistachios with ease!
