Ingredients of Mango Coconut Ice Cream (Six Servings)

To make six servings of mango coconut ice cream, you will need the following ingredients:

  • Two large ripe mangoes: The key to a flavorful ice cream is using fully ripened mangoes. These will provide natural sweetness and vibrant color.
  • One can (400 ml) of full-fat coconut milk: This is important for a creamy texture. Avoid using coconut milk beverages, as they are too diluted.
  • Half (1/2) cup of coconut cream: Coconut cream is thicker than coconut milk and can be found in most grocery stores. It adds extra creaminess to the ice cream.
  • Half a cup of sugar: Adjust the amount of sugar to your taste. For a different flavor profile, you can substitute it with other sweeteners like honey or agave syrup.
  • One tablespoon of lime or lemon juice: It adds a hint of tanginess, balancing the sweetness of the mangoes.
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract: For an added depth of flavor.
  • A pinch of salt: Enhances the overall taste by bringing out the flavors of the other ingredients.

How to Make Mango Coconut Ice Cream

First Step: Prepare the Mangoes

Start by peeling the mangoes and cutting the flesh away from the pit. Dice the mango flesh into small cubes and place them in a blender or food processor. Blend until you achieve a smooth puree. If your mangoes are very fibrous, you might want to strain the puree through a fine mesh sieve to remove any fibers.

Second Step: Mix the Ingredients

Combine the mango puree, coconut milk, coconut cream, sugar, lemon or lime juice, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk everything together until the sugar is fully dissolved and the mixture is smooth.

Third Step: Chill the Mixture

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and place it in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or until the mixture is thoroughly chilled. This step is crucial as it helps the ice cream mixture to churn better and achieve a smoother texture.

Fourth Step: Churn the Ice Cream

Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into an ice cream maker and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. It usually takes about 20-30 minutes. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, pour the mixture into a shallow dish and place it in the freezer. Every 30 minutes, stir the mixture vigorously with a fork to break up any ice crystals. Repeat this process until the ice cream is smooth and creamy.

Fifth Step: Freeze until the Firm

After churning, transfer the soft ice cream to an airtight container. Please place it in the freezer for at least four hours or overnight to firm up.


  • Selecting Mangoes: Choose fragrant mangoes that give slightly gentle pressure. Overripe mangoes can be too mushy, while underripe ones won’t have the sweetness.
  • Coconut Milk: Shake the can of coconut milk well before opening to ensure the cream and water are well mixed. Use only the thick cream that rises to the top for a richer flavor.
  • Sweetness Level: Taste the mixture before freezing to adjust its sweetness. Remember that frozen desserts tend to taste less sweet once frozen, so it might be a good idea to make the mixture slightly sweeter than necessary.
  • Texture: To achieve a smoother texture, add a tablespoon of cornstarch or arrowroot powder to the mixture before chilling. It helps prevent the formation of ice crystals.
  • Add-ins: After churning, you can mix in chunks of fresh mango, shredded coconut, or even a swirl of mango puree for added texture and flavor.

Enjoy your homemade mango coconut ice cream on its own. For an extra touch of indulgence, serve it with a sprinkle of toasted coconut or a drizzle of honey. This tropical dessert is sure to become a favorite for all ages!
