Ice Cream Sunday: Mango & Coconut Milk Ice Cream

I recently bought this Cuisinart ice cream maker as a present to myself for my birthday. I'm so excited to start making ice cream, sorbet and frozen yogurt! So excited in fact, that a new feature has been born, Ice Cream Sunday! Get ready for a new frozen desert recipe every Sunday for the rest of the summer! It's gonna be awesome.

To kick off this ice cream marathon is a simple, yummy and kinda healthy (it has fruit in it!) mango & coconut milk ice cream. Made with only fresh mangos, coconut milk, half and half lime and optional sweetener (I didn't use any), it's a little spoonful of tropical deliciousness. I topped mine with a bit of toasted coconut. Perfect for eating outside on a hot summer day!

Mango & Coconut Milk Ice Cream
2 fresh, ripe mangos, peeled and cubed
1 14 oz. can regular coconut milk
1/4 cup half and half
lime juice from 1/4 of a lime
sweetener (sugar, agave syrup, etc.), optional

1. In a blender, blend mangos, coconut milk, half and half and lime juice until very smooth. Taste mixture and add sweetener if needed. I didn't add any and it was great! Place in fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight.
2. Add cold mixture into ice cream machine for about 20 minutes or until you have the texture of soft serve. If you prefer a harder ice cream, place into an airtight container and let harden overnight.


  1. Oh my god this sounds fabulous and I LOVE the Ice Cream Sunday idea! I am an ice cream fanatic so I can't wait to try your recipes!

  2. Two of my favorite fruits, coconut and mango. Great combo.

  3. 3 Researches PROVE How Coconut Oil Kills Belly Fat.

    The meaning of this is that you actually burn fat by eating coconut fat (including coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from large medical magazines are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
