Healthy, dairy-free, creamy and delicious, Creamy Mango Ice Cream!
We love ice cream! Who doesn’t? We know that ice cream can be filled with added sugar and tons of fat to make it creamy and delicious, but what if you could enjoy the same texture and taste with healthy ingredients?
That’s why we love making nice cream! We use frozen bananas and other frozen fruits to get a rich and creamy texture, sweetness and the flavors we all love and enjoy. We have a fun holiday dye free ice cream recipe for red, white and blue and we even make a delicious Mango Strawberry Banana Ice Cream. We love mangos for nice cream! Many people think that only bananas make a creamy nice cream, but mangos do too! Read all about mangos and even find some tasty recipes.
We highly recommend using a high speed blender or food processor for this recipe. It makes the process so much easier and a few ice cream nights alone are worth the purchase our blender.
This mango ice cream is so creamy since the bananas are creamy as well as the mango. Typically we all put sprinkles on our ice cream, but with our nice cream we like to use seeds or even chopped frozen foods. Chia seeds are our personal favorite since they give a little bit of a crunch. I know what you’re thinking, “chia seeds as sprinkles?!” As soon as we told our daughter that they were sprinkles she was digging her hand in the bag to put more on her mango nice cream. Then she was even licking the sprinkles of her little fingers. So fun! So not only is she enjoying nice cream as ice cream, but chia seeds as sprinkles. It can’t get much healthier than that!
We hope you enjoy our nice cream and you can try it with all different flavors and varieties. Another fun idea, you could even make a berry sauce and drizzle it over the nice cream!
