Vegan mango nice cream is light and refreshing. Dairy-free and perfect on that warm summer day.
My family is on a huge ice cream kick right now. It’s been a miserably hot summer here in Arizona. The temperatures have been on average anywhere from 105-115 degrees every day for several months. For that reason, we love to have ice cream to cool down!
This vegan mango nice cream is so easy to make. If you love mangoes, this is the perfect sweet treat. It’s made with canned coconut milk and is completely dairy-free.
No ice cream maker is required for this recipe. Just place all the ingredients into a blender until everything is blended together well. Since the mangoes are frozen the mixture is already really cold, and ready to eat once blended. If the nice cream is still a little too soft, put in the freezer for a bit to firm it up.

How to make this recipe
1 – Add the canned coconut milk, frozen mangoes, and vanilla extract to a blender.
2 – Blend until the mangoes are broken up into small chunks and everything is blended well together.
Taste test the nice cream and if it’s not sweet enough, add a little extra sugar to give the nice cream a little more sweetness.
What if I don’t have a blender?
If no blender is available, put the mixture in a resealable storage bag and carefully knead the mixture. Then, place in the freezer for a couple of hours. Just be sure to dice up the mangoes into smaller pieces first since they won’t be blended.
The mixture becomes very firm once in the freezer for a bit, so it may be easier to transfer from resealable bag to a freezer-safe container before placing in the freezer.
What fruit can I use instead of mango?
You can use frozen peaches, nectarines, papaya, apricots, or another frozen fruit in place of the mangoes if you’re not a fan of mangoes.
How long does homemade nice cream last?
