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.

Mango Lime Tart | The Novice Housewife

Mangoes are the most beloved fruit in India and thus hold the proud title of India’s national fruit. You can find mango trees by the dozen in most places in India and gorging on the sweet and aromatic juices of a mango is one of the few pluses of this scorching Indian heat (temperature are almost touching 49°C/ 120 ° F!!).

Even though mangoes are grown in several places across the globe, Indian varieties are the most sought after with Alphonso (or Hapuz as known by Indians) topping the list.

Come April, and roadside vendors, fruit and vegetable markets are all flocked with this juicy fruit. And with the recent EU ban on Indian mangoes till December 2015 (seriously, what’s wrong with these people to ban such a popular fruit! ), prices of premium mangoes have decreased in local markets which is a sweet welcome for us mango lovers.

So its only fair that most is made of this green and yellow fruit while its season lasts till July and this Mango and Lime Tart gives this fruit absolute justice.
