18 May 14 (Sun) - Mango Ice Cream

Recently a friend posted a photo of the chocolate ice cream that she made and it reminded me that it has been quite a while since my last attempt on ice cream making. So after that day, I brainstormed on what ice cream I can try. Corn ice cream and matcha ice cream came to mind but they flew out of my head after I saw some nice rainbow mangoes from Thailand in NTUC selling at $1.20 each.

Bought two mangoes plus a packet of whipping cream and transformed them into mango ice cream. The end result turned out to be surprisingly good with the right texture and taste. And guess what? It's only using three ingredients!

200ml whipping cream
150g mango puree
80g icing sugar

1.  Whisk whipping cream till foamy for about 3 mins
2.  Add icing sugar in three batches and whisk the mixture after every addition
3.  Add mango puree and whisk till well combined
4.  Pour mixture into a container of your choice and put into the freezer
5.  Remove from freezer after 2 hours to churn* with a fork
6.  Repeat step (5) for another two times before freezing it overnight

* Try to churn the mixture in a whisking manner to try to incorporate as much air into the mixture as possible

One thing I learn from this experience is that by churning the mixture in a whisking manner to incorporate as much air as possible into the mixture create a closer texture to the commercially made ice cream. Decorated the ice cream with some dice mango, orange rinds and glazed cherry and presto!

Brought half of the ice cream to office for my group of food buddies to try and it received many positive reviews.

CC and TYY said “Yummy” while NYP exclaimed loudly over the panel that it was really "authentic" and "can really taste the mango". This goes to show that even simple ingredients can be transformed into delicious food.
