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.

Creamy, fresh and slightly tangy homemade passionfruit icecream

A few years back I had a passionfruit and mango icecream at the Delhi Häagen-Dazs outlet. It was one of the best flavors I have ever tried and since then I have it in my mind to recreate a passionfruit and mango ice cream at home.

I had some frozen passionfruit pulp that has been lying in the freezer for a while now. I had bought it to use in a lemon curd, passionfruit buttercream and coconut cake, which turned out absolutely delicious. I somehow never got around to share the recipe, but hopefully will make it again and share on the blog soon.

Coming back to the ice cream, I have no idea why I waited this long to try the recipe, but oh my goodness, this ice cream is the bomb. Its not mango season any more in India so I couldn’t recreate the exact flavors, but I am not complaining. With a smooth and creamy texture and a slight tang from the passionfruit, this ice cream is a winner in my book.

lychee ice cream

Summer is officially here and even though summer comes with many sweaty woes, but as my fellow blogger Gayatri pointed out summer does come with its biggest perks- stone fruits! Mangoes, plums, lychees, cherries, peaches and the like. Which invariably means- pies, cobblers, jams and of course ice cream!

In my last post I mentioned about our trip to the indian store. Besides getting fenugreek leaves, I also brought home some lychees.

I took some time to like lychees. Probably because they require a lot of effort to eat. Peeling the skin and then spitting out the seed. As kids, our summer vacations were always at my grandparents house in Jalandhar, Punjab. My cousin sister would also spend her summer there with us. She and I have a ten year age difference and I looked up to her as a big sister, which meant I would imitate her habits quite a bit. If she ate musk melon, cut in half like a bowl, that’s how I started eating it. She is also the reason why I started eating lychees. She loves them and my grandfather would stock the fridge with lots of lychees during season. So when she got some for herself, she would share with me and even though I found it a lot of effort I slowly started eating and then eventually liking them.
