Mango Ice Cream

Dried mango can be found in most health- or specialty-food stores.

  • yield: Makes 1 quart




  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) dried mango
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1 1/2 large, very ripe mangoes, peeled and seeded
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons sugar

Cook's Note

Store ice cream, frozen, in an airtight container up to 3 days.


  1. Step 1

    In a medium bowl, combine dried mango and rum; set mixture aside to soak, turning occasionally, 2 hours.

  2. Step 2

    Drain soaked mango in a colander set over a bowl. Cut mango into 1/4-inch dice, and set aside. Reserve rum for another use.

  3. Step 3

    Cut fresh mango into large chunks, and puree in a food processor. Set aside.

  4. Step 4

    Combine 1 cup cream and milk in a medium saucepan; bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine egg yolks and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat on high speed until pale yellow and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Whisking, pour 1/2 cup of hot cream mixture into the egg mixture. Whisking, pour this new mixture back into hot cream mixture; whisk until combined. Cook until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat.

  5. Step 5

    Using the electric mixer, whip remaining 1/4 cup cream until soft peaks form. Add whipped cream, rum-soaked mango, and mango puree to the hot cream mixture. Stir to combine and let cool. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

    I also skipped the dried mango in rum.

    I added a vanilla bean and recommend passing the mixture through a chinois before chilling, especially if your mangoes more fibrous. If using champagne mangoes, you might want to use three.

    I made this without the dried mango and rum. Tasted great and was a hit. Very creamy. I didn't sieve the mango puree so the ice cream had very small bits of mango in it and had some bite.
