11 Jun 16 (Sun) - Mango Ice Cream (Improved Version)

It is thick in the summer and there are mangoes everywhere so what's a better to scream summer than having mango ice cream!

Bought four mangoes for $5 from the market and they smell heavenly. Used the three ingredients recipe but this time round, I added 50g more mango puree and a twist to the usual method. And the results? Simply divine! 

Those who tasted the ice cream shouted "Nice!" and "Fresh!". A few of them commented that the mango taste was very strong and not too sweet. Guess this will become the new improved recipe for the three ingredients mango ice cream.

200ml whipping cream
200g diced mango
80g icing sugar

1.  Place diced mango in a blender and pulse 2-3 times
2.  Add whipping cream and 1/3 of the icing sugar then pulse 2-3 times
3.  Add another 1/3 of the icing sugar and pulse 2-3 times
4.  Add the remaining icing sugar and blend the mixture for about 10-15 seconds
5.  Pour mixture into a container of your choice and put into the freezer
6.  Remove from freezer after 3 hours to churn* with a fork
7.  Repeat step (6) for another time 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

Since I have some diced mango, pomelo and strawberry sauce, tried to do plating and I think I need to work on my plating skill. Nevertheless, after I was done with it that I realized that the combination was that of the Mango Pomelo Sago (杨枝甘露) dessert minus the sago and coconut milk. Haha....
