Mango Gelato (without an ice cream maker)

Mango gelato

This delicious mango gelato is one of the easiest ice creams you can make without an ice cream maker!

Smooth and creamy yellow gelato is perfect for summer. It is super easy and terrifically yummy!!!

As you can see from some of my recipes, I mainly use condensed milk because it is a fundamental ingredient for making ice cream without an ice cream maker.

I remember the ice cream shop next to the school in elementary school, which always sold the usual ice cream in two flavors: chocolate and stracciatella.

When I left school, instead of going directly home, I stopped, especially on hot days, to look at the lady who worked at the ice cream shop filling the cones with cool, creamy gelato.

I just looked, but I couldn’t buy it because otherwise, I would come home with a full stomach, I’d be unable to eat the lunch my mom prepared me, and she would get angry, so I watched the children enjoy their ice cream cones instead.

Mango gelato, ice-cream

The intense yellow of the sun, like the color of this mango ice cream, pushed me home more and more to avoid the temptation to buy some.

However, when I had my parent’s consent to buy it, I was thrilled; I couldn’t wait for school to end to get to the lady first and enjoy that ice cream cone with both flavors. I savored every last bit while it dripped from all sides of the cone because of the sun's heat.

What memories!!! How much would I give to be a child again and retrace every moment of my childhood?

Mango gelato is a creamy, flavorful frozen dessert made from ripe mangoes. It is a type of gelato, an Italian-style ice cream known for its dense and smooth texture. Here’s an overview of how mango gelato is made and its characteristics:

  • 10 ounces mango pulp
  • 5.3 ounces sweet condensed milk
  • 2/3 cups whipping cream
    • You will have obtained the mango pulp from one or two fresh and ripe mangos, which you will put in a container with high sides.
    • Blend everything with the immersion blender until a homogeneous and creamy mixture is obtained.
    • Transfer the mango cream to a bowl.
    • Add the condensed milk and the whipping cream.
    • Whisk everything together with the electric whisk for about 5 minutes until a creamy mixture is obtained, which will almost double in volume.
    • Pour the mixture into a cold steel bowl (previously put the bowl in the freezer).
    • Put in the freezer for 6 hours or overnight.
