If you’re a visual learner like me, below you’ll find step by step process shots to aid you in making your homemade mango ice cream.
In a food processor or blender, puree the diced fresh mango and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the chilled heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.
Fold in the mango puree.
Remove the chilled loaf pan from the freezer and pour the mango ice cream mixture into the loaf pan.
Place the loaf pan back into the freezer for 6-8 hours or until the ice cream is fully set. Once set, scoop into an ice cream cone or bowl and serve!
Store leftover ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 4-6 weeks or store in the loaf pan with plastic wrap for up to 1 week. But it won’t last that long!
