Easy Mango Ice Cream

Not everyone has the courage and time to make those premium high quality ice cream that requires you to make a beat eggs and sugar, then slowly adding warm milk and then measuring your temperature carefully on the stove. There are actually easy to make ice cream recipes that will satisfy your cravings for dessert in this hot Bruneian weather. Here's an easy recipe that requires you to just add and mix. Foolproof, idiotproof, paluiproof. Ultra easy tu.

Mango Ice Cream


  • 2 (375ml) cans sweetened condensed milk
  • 1.2 litre cream
  • 300ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 500g or 3 cups chopped fresh mangoes


1) If you got an ice cream maker, just combine the liquids together first then chill them in the fridge for a few hours. After that pour your chilled liquid mixture into the ice cream maker and slowly add the chopped mangoes in.

2) If you don't have an ice cream maker, no sweat, first mix all the ingredients(except chopped mangoes) and pour them into a container. Freeze for 3 hrs in the freezer, take out and mash them. Freeze for another 3 hours and then take out and mash them again.

3) After 3 hrs again, take the mixture out and this time, add in the chopped mangoes. Don't overstir at this stage. Freeze overnight. Before serving your guests, take out your ice cream 5-10 minutes in advance. Simple home made mango ice cream.

Note: Sometimes mangoes in Brunei can be really sweet, if you don't have a sweet tooth, put in only one can of sweetened condense milk and replace it with 200ml of cream.

Note: This is not your Dryers, Swensons or Haagan Daaz quality ice cream but it will beat commercially made ice cream from the supermarket since this is home made. Have fun :)
