Vegan Mango Ice Cream Lower-Calorie
Vegan mango ice 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. Sometimes, no matter how much water I drink, it’s so hard to cool down. For that reason, we love to have ice cream to cool down.
This vegan mango ice 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. There are only 4 ingredients that go into making this ice cream. The canned coconut milk, frozen mangoes, and a little vanilla extract. Then I add a little granulated sugar to give the ice cream a little more sweetness.
No ice cream maker is required for this recipe. Just pop 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 it’s still a little too soft, put in the freezer for a bit to firm it up.
What if I don’t have a blender to make Vegan Mango Ice Cream?
If no blender is available, you could put the mixture in a Ziplock 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. The mixture becomes very frozen once in freezer, so it may be easier to transfer from Ziplock to a freezer-safe container before placing in the freezer.
You can use frozen peaches, or another frozen fruit in place of the mangoes if you’re not a fan of mangoes.
