Ingredients for Mango Ice Cream with Coconut Milk

Vegan mango ice cream ingredients laid out on a gray countertop.

Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is needed to blend this ice cream together. The coconut milk does give a bit of a strong flavor. If you’re not a fan of coconut, then feel free to sub in another type of non-dairy milk.

Maple Syrup: Maple syrup is here to help make it sweet! Adjust accordingly for your own taste buds, or sub in agave. Sugar may also work, but has not been tested – coconut sugar might work, or white sugar, I don’t think brown sugar would complement this recipe.

Vanilla: This is totally optional, but helps enhance the flavor (aka- vanilla makes sweet foods taste better).

Mango: Mango is the star of the show in this recipe! It should be frozen for best results when using a high-speed blender (don’t have one – scroll to alternative ways to make this). 

However, if you prefer another fruit, then use another frozen fruit. I hope you’ll know the flavor will change depending on the fruit you use. If you switch out the mango for something else, you may want to omit the ginger, as it doesn’t pair well flavor-wise with all fruit. Other fruit ginger might go well are pineapple, apples (but I wouldn’t recommend apple ice cream), blueberries, and peaches.

Ginger: Ginger brings in an extra punch (of flavor and health benefits). It can be omitted if you don’t like the taste, but it pairs well with the mango and coconut flavor.

Alternative Ways to Make this Mango Ice Cream

If you don’t have a high speed blender, like a vitamix or blendtec, and your blender isn’t strong enough to blend frozen mangoes with little liquid then you still have a couple of different ways to make this recipe!

First, if you have a food processor, you can use that to blend up your ingredients. This would be the next easiest and fastest way to make it.

Or, if all you have is a weaker blender, that is fine, too. You’ll simply have to use fresh mangoes, or thaw your frozen mangoes completely before blending, such as microwaving them. This will ensure they are nice and juicy, adding more natural liquid to the blender without any additional ingredients.

Then, once it’s blended, it will be a liquid and you will have to freeze it before enjoying. At this point you’ll freeze it in a loaf pan, so you can scoop it like ice cream before enjoying.

How to Serve Mango Ice Cream

Serve mango ice cream in a bowl or in a cone. Add some coconut shreds or sprinkles on top if you’d like.

Enjoy this ice cream as you would any ice cream!

How to Store Mango Ice Cream

Freezer: Store in the freezer, covered. Let thaw before enjoying again.

Notes

Store in the freezer.
Run the ice cream scoop under warm water before each scoop to get the perfect scoop of ice cream!
If you let it set overnight, or longer, allow 5-10 minutes of it being outside of the freezer before scooping.
DO NOT microwave to reduce time before scooping, this will make for a very messy ice cream experience.
