Easy Mango Passionfruit Ice cream recipe (eggless)

Mango season is upon us here in India, which means a lot of Mango recipes coming your way. Nothing screams summer louder than this mango passionfruit ice cream. It’s bursting with the fresh and refreshing flavors of mangoes, and with a slight tang of passionfruit. A perfect treat for the summer heat.

A few years back, when I was still in US, I had visited India during the summer months. Häagen-Dazs had just opened its first outlet in Delhi and I went to try it out. They had certain local flavors and mango passionfruit ice cream was one of them. I had never eaten passionfruit anything before and when I tested the mango passionfruit ice cream, I was sold. It was tangy, creamy yet refreshing. The flavors were fresh and since then I have been meaning to recreate that flavor combination of mango and passionfruit at home.

I had some frozen passionfruit puree left from the time I made the passionfruit ice cream. When mango season hit, it was one of the first things I set out to make. Its weird how tastes evolve as we grow older. As a kid I hated mangoes- I didn’t like the mess that came with eating mangoes (In India, we use our hands and mouth to eat mangoes, and it gets messy). Now, I don’t mind the mess and in fact love mangoes. They work very well in desserts, and the possibilities are endless.

This recipe is easy. Just a whiz in the blender and you are set. I used an ice cream maker (this one), but in case you don’t have one you can still get good results. The addition of milk powder is what keeps this ice creamy and keeps it from forming ice crystals.

Hope you get to try the recipe. If you do, please share your feedback here. You can also tag me on Facebook, instagram or twitter.

The Spice MadamsSpiceMadam subscription box

I met Meghana at one of the pop up festivals in Dallas.  She and Kim, her business partner and co-founder of Spice Madam, were two bright and cheery people that you couldn’t miss at the festival. On the pretext of being a food blogger and photographer, and potentially interested in their spice boxes I took Meghana’s number. Honestly, I just wanted to be friends with her.

Meghana is one of those people, whose energy and spirit is contagious. Kim shares that same energy and the two make excellent business partners. When we met for coffee afterwords Meghana told me more about Spice Madam and I was intrigued by the concept.

Founded in December 2013, Spice Madam is a global lifestyle brand that brings friends and family together through food. Every month, Spice Madam subscribers explore, discover & experience a different culture through each box. The Spice Madams, as Meghana and Kim are known, create subscription boxes filled with global spices and recipes, music playlists and fun cultural facts. A shopping list & meal plan is included to save time for busy lives and the authentic recipes are researched and tested to ensure that every customer can make them in their home kitchens. I can attest to their recipes- I shot the recipes for their Senegal subscription box and each dish was something I would want to make at home.

Madeleines are a classic french butter cake/cookie. This recipe yields light and wonderful madeleines that have a hint of orange blossom in them. Super easy to whip up and a reliable crowd-pleaser!

Orange Blossom Madeleine

I have always wanted to make madeleines but since I did not have a madeleine pan I never attempted them. I have posted my mom’s english madeleine recipe on the blog, and while I love that recipe, english madeleines differ from their french counterpart. Both absolutely delicious but in different respects.

I finally invested in a madeleine pan and had been waiting to try a recipe for these. I knew as my first try I wanted to make the classic version, and keep the more complicated and fancier sounding madeleines for later. I had recently bought orange blossom water from amazon for another recipe, and never got around to making the recipe I bought the water for. From reviews of the madeleine recipes I had read online, I knew I had found the perfect way to use the orange blossom water lying in my cupboard.
