Mango season is here in Miami! I love love love mangoes and I am fortunate enough to have great friends and family who have a mango tree in their backyards! I live in an apartment so my dream of growing my own fruits and vegetables is still far away.

I got these yummy mangoes and they made the entire room smell soooooo good! I thought it is so hot outside and they will be perfect for ice cream!  I didn’t realize how easy it was to make it, and I have my own ice cream machine my Vitamix Professional Series which is not only the best blender for smoothies but also makes ice cream!

This is such an easy recipe: some ice, milk or water and magoes. That’s it! 3 ingredients and you have a delicious summer treat!

Mangoes are really sweet so there is no need to add any sugar, making this recipe a healthy snack or dessert option. Pure mango flavor! You can try this recipe using water, coconut water, or any type of milk: dairy or non-dairy. I am now experimenting with almond milk and the reason why I used it to make the ice cream.

The ice cream came out super yummy! I am also adjusting the recipe for you to calculate the amount of ice and liquid you need for each mango. I made a big container with 3 mangoes so you might want to see how much you want to make.

If you don’t have a high speed blender you need to blend and freeze for a couple of hours in a closed container.

If you are using a regular blender you can also use less ice and more milk or water because you will freeze it anyway.  This is also a great smoothie or ice pop recipe if you add more liquids.  Enjoy!

If you would like to purchase good quality ice pop molds, click on the photos below for information and where to buy. Great size for a small child and very easy to clean! They are super easy to peel off too! (the silicone ones are easier, the others you need to run a little hot water before peeling off) I have tried them all. These are my favorite molds!
