Ice Blocks, Sorbet and Ice Cream:
Fun Fact: The paisley pattern popular in clothing is based on the shape of the mango.
They are the easiest summertime treat you could ever make and the flavour options are endless. Have fruit that is getting too ripe? Make them into popsicles. When you make your own pops at home, you control the ingredients which is usually about two to four max, and you can feel really good about eating them and feeding them to your family! And hello inexpensive dessert!
Feeling really hot this summer? Try this wonderful concoction using fresh, ripe mangoes! You will need superb whisking skills or a good ol’ blender for this one. You could also lower the calories by using low fat cream.
Summer is here and it’s also desert season. So lets get your ice cream machine ready and bring the summer to your table! These ice cream bars, made with homemade vanilla bean ice cream, are topped with tropical mango and pineapple puree – hello sunshine! The tropical fruitiness paired with the velvety rich vanilla bean ice cream is so divine. And let’s not forget the graham cracker crust, which adds delicious buttery crunch to the recipe.
Again, mangoes and ice cream machine. Enough said.
If you don’t have a Blendtec or a Vitamix you can do this in a regular blender if it handles frozen things well. You’ll need to add more liquid to get things moving though, so the texture might be more smoothie-like.
Erm. Mango plus coconut doesn’t need an explanation anymore.
Fresh, fruity, natural, fun, eye-catchy, versatile, these colourful frozen treats are for everybody. Instead of mixing the fruit puree together, go for a fun striped effect by layering mango puree and strawberry puree and freezing them in stages. You can use any kind of berries, or you can try peach, nectar, cherry, even citrus would be a great idea.
