For the second day of Ice Creams, I have the seasonal special for you. With Mangoes being in season and overflowing in the fridge, I can't but make it right. As I have said we mostly never think of cooking any fruits, all of us at home prefer eating as such or as custard. There was never a need to make a dish with it, either we don't like or we want to try something.
Even if one of us doesn't like something, there is always one for whom its favorite. I can pick and choose the fruits for my family and my kids have their choice. Mango is one fruit that's loved by all at home. So naturally it never finds itself modified in different forms.
The last time I made different dishes, was for the blog sake and while everybody liked it, they still said they would prefer to eat it as such. Well why even take the pains is what I end up thinking. when I made the 2 ingredient Ice cream,
I decided I might as well try out other flavors. I had some good options to try out. Though as expected time and tide never waits for one and so time just flew and I was left with no time to execute what I had in mind.
With my elder SIL visiting us, I am even more tied up to just think how I
will cook and click. The next two posts are hurried clicks before they
find me, of course they know about my blogs. Its just so funny when you
have house guest and I keep clicking!
Since I had frozen it for
longer than expected, the ice cream was really set. Then I decided I
would make single serve so that its easy to serve everybody. I used
muffin silicon molds to freeze individual servings. And its so easy to
remove to a bowl.
I enjoyed clicking the pictures and I
especially loved the fresh mint leaves from my pot. Its so refreshing to
just puck a fresh leave and enjoy. Small and wonderful pleasures of
growing your own herb.
I found the mint to be very refreshing with mangoes and ice creams. So maybe I must seriously try the mint ice cream now.!
Ever since I have been thinking about 3 Ingredient Dishes, I have ended up making dishes with just three main ingredients. Its really fun to experiment what all we could do with just three ingredients sometimes.
3 Ingredient Mango Ice Cream
2 Ingredient Ice Cream

How to make the Ice Cream

Then add the mango puree and blend well.
