Mango Soft Serve

I first discovered banana soft serve at a local vegan restaurant that David and I like to go to for date night. No, no we definitely are not vegan but we enjoy the food because it’s delicious and more health conscious than most restaurants. I’ve been amazed how creamy, cold and delicious banana soft serve is since it’s only ingredient is frozen banana. One day I was sitting wondering what other frozen fruit I could throw into my food processor and yield the same amazing result. I scrolled through my lists of fruit looking for one most similar to banana. GOT IT! MANGOES!  And that’s how mango soft serve was born. I tried out a little concoction later that evening handed a bowl to david and he said “wow! You’ve got to put this on the blog.” So here it is! As you will see in the recipe I added heavy cream because it seriously takes the flavor over the top. You feel like you are eating a giant bowl of decadent ice cream. If you are dairy intolerant you can sub the cream out for coconut milk or cream for the same idea (I tested it out and it’s equally delicious).

Mango Soft Serve (yields 2-3 servings)
Add the mango to the food processor and let it go until it reaches a creamy consistency. Slowly add the heavy cream and continue to let it whip. I usually scrape the side once to push the mango back down towards the blade. And you are done! Scoop into bowls and enjoy! I like to sprinkle a little homemade granola or fresh strawberries on top.
I also tried adding lemon extract which was also delicious so play around with it. There are endless possibilities!

    I too love mangos. I also make it but instead of the milk I make with orange juice. Is delicious . I’m going to try it with the milk.

  24. Marin Rands Inneo

    I do this exact process after I freeze my delicious home grown mangoes but I use Fat Free Greek Yogurt instead of using milk or cream. I also use a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and a tablespoon of stevia. It is so yummy!
