When looking at allrecipes.com, my eye caught the title of a five-minute ice cream.  The recipe seemed so simple, I had to try it out.  I had some mangoes that were going too ripe, so I chopped them up and stuck them in the freezer to try out this recipe.

The taste is pretty good, though the texture isn't really that of an ice cream.  It is more like something in between an ice cream and a sorbet.  I guess it is hard to expect an ice cream texture if you aren't using an ice cream maker to make this. 

The original recipe was found on allrecipes.com and was submitted by Pamela Euless-BarkerHer recipe called for strawberries, while I used mangoes. Also I used slightly less sugar in my recipe, as the overripe mangoes were already very sweet on their own.


  • 2 cups frozen mangoes, cubed.
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream


Process mangoes in the food processor, until the fruit is roughly chopped. With the processor running, slowly pour in the heavy cream until fully blended. Add sugar slowly until reaching desired sweetness. Serve immediately, or freeze for 30 minutes before serving.

If you eat immediately, it has the texture of melted ice cream.  The freezer will firm it up but also makes it more icy.

    I have a question: What if one doesn’t have a food processor..will a blender work? Thanks

      I think so, as long as you have a good powerful blender.
