Mango Ice Cream

We often buy mangos by the box over the summer, children love mangos and it's a lot cheaper to shop that way and share the fruits around.

However, there always a couple of mangos left, that we just felt we would like to move on to other fruits.

So I made this mango ice cream, to use up the last three ripe mango we got from the previous box.

Mango Ice cream

3 ripe Kensington mangos, fresh only, mashed.
100g sugar
250ml thick cream
150ml milk – full cream
5 egg yolks
1.5 tsp gelatine

Whisk eggs till light and fluffy.
Bring the milk, sugar and cream to boil and take it off heat, add gelatine and stir well.
Let it cool a while, and then add to the egg mixture, mix well.
Let liquid pass through sift, and add to the mango mixture.
Mix well and let it cool down in fridge.
Use ice cream maker as directed, or freeze in the freezer, but you have to bring out and stir occasionally if not using ice cream maker.

Adjust the amount of sugar as the sweet level of the mango.  It's very refreshing as you can still taste the original mango flavour.
