The wholesome goodness of homemade mango ice cream
This to-die-for fruit ice cream delivers a flavour burst of the real McCoy without a single bit of artificial flavouring or added sugar in sight. Try to use sweet-tasting mangoes if possible and ensure that the mangoes are not fibrous.

Easy does it: Tips for the perfect ice cream
Whip the cream (heavy cream or whipping cream are the best options) until you get stiff peaks on medium-high to high speed. Do not overdo as the cream can curdle.
Fold the mango pulp into the yoghurt and cream gently. Do not mix vigorously as this could cause the mixture to fall flat and lose its volume, resulting in a dense texture.
- 440 g mango slices, frozen
- 500 ml coconut yoghurt
- 250 ml cream
- 1 packet of vanilla wafers, or any flavour of your choice
- Slightly defrost the mangoes and puree in a food processor. Set aside.
- Beat the cream and the yoghurt in a small bowl until peaks form.
- Gently fold in the pureed mango in the cream and yoghurt mixture.
- Spoon the mixture onto a prepared flat surface dish, lined with non-stick baking paper, spread evenly and freeze for at least eight hours.
- Remove from the freezer and divide each wafer. Arrange the divided wafers on the top of the ice cream. Tip the dish over on a flat surface and arrange the other wafer halves on top and slice according to the wafer size.
