Indian | Indian Mango Ice Cream

Posted on February 20, 2014

When I saw this Indian ice cream I had to try it.

Yield: 3 pints

Indian mango ice cream


2 cups whole milk

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 ounce sugar

1 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

12 ounces mango purée from fresh ripe mangos



In a small saucepan, combine the whole milk, cardamom, and sugar; bring mixture to a gentle simmer over a low flame.

Once simmering gently, continue to cook over a very low flame for 5 minutes to infuse the flavors into the mixture.

Remove from the heat, and allow to cool completely by stirring over an ice bath to prevent the formation of a film.

Once cooled, add the sweetened condensed milk and mango purée.

Taste the mixture for mange flavor, which should be pronounced; if it isn't, add more mango (the ripeness of the mangoes will affect this).

Freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacture's instructions.
