Mango Coconut Ice Cream

Mango Coconut Ice Cream Recipe with coconut milk, frozen mango and maple syrup. Healthy and easy no churn ice cream.

Ice cream and dark chocolate are my 2 favourite desserts! Last summer I bought my first ice cream maker (very simple one – it might be louder but I don’t make ice cream often enough to justify spending $70 on an ice cream maker) and started making my own healthy ice cream. I was a bit sceptical if kids would love this coconut mango ice cream since the taste is so coconut-y but they did!

Since then, I have added healthy chocolate ice cream, vegan vanilla ice cream and strawberry rhubarb ice cream recipes to our summer treats rotation.

However, this easy mango ice cream recipe is special because it is made without an ice cream machine. After making and freezing the first batch, I realized because there is so much mango the recipe might work without an ice cream machine. Yep, it worked! Coconut mango ice cream defrosts within 15 minutes and is soft and creamy.

Why Make Your Own Ice Cream

This label is one of my “favourites”! If you have never ever read the label on your ice cream bucket you happily serve to your kids, please do ASAP. If you care about health of your children (I’m sure you do), you shouldn’t buy regular ice cream ever again. I won’t go into details on each harmful chemical ingredient but you can read about them here, here and here.

You can buy organic ice cream but I don’t like the presence of white sugar and carrageenan in it (at least in the one I can find where I live). Plus frankly, making no churn ice cream is fun and takes 5 minutes. I also recommend Screamin Brothers or Coconut Bliss for a store bought vegan ice cream.

How to Make Mango Coconut Ice Cream

  1. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth. You might leave some larger mango pieces if you wish. Mango Coconut Ice Cream Recipe with coconut milk, frozen mango and maple syrup. Healthy and easy no churn ice cream.
  2. Pour into any container with a lid, place in a freezer and freeze for 3 hours. To serve, let thaw on a counter for 15 – 30 minutes or so.

My kids love mango! And I always have frozen mango chunks on hand for green smoothies. Mango makes my kids love green smoothies. I pay $10 for this huge bag at Costco. I highly recommend to use Thai Kitchen coconut milk as it produces creamy and smooth ice cream thanks to a guar gum. It is available organic and regular. Please also read other labels of coconut milk carefully – I have seen clean ones and ones listing bunch of chemicals in them, especially cheaper Asian brands.

Mango Coconut Ice Cream

  • Author: ifoodreal.com
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3 hours
  • Total Time: 3 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 14 oz can coconut milk, full fat (I recommend Thai Kitchen)*
  • 3 – 4 cups mango chunks, frozen**
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or raw honey

Instructions

  1. In a blender or food processor, add all ingredients and process until smooth. You might leave some larger mango pieces if you wish.
  2. Pour into any container with a lid, place in a freezer and freeze for 3 hours. To serve, let thaw on a counter for 15 – 30 minutes or so. Because this ice cream doesn’t have any fillers, it takes a bit longer to defrost and become softer, especially with time. Be patient.:)

Store: Freeze in a glass airtight container for up to a few months.

Notes

*I highly recommend to use Thai Kitchen coconut milk as it produces creamy and smooth ice cream thanks to a guar gum. It is available organic and regular. I have tried other brands with less flavourful results. Coconut cream from Trader Joe’s is good too. **More mango => more fibre => softer ice cream => shorter thawing time.

  1. Made this for the third time now. LOVE it!! Thank you for a simple recipe that does not require an ice cream maker. Coming from an island… I’ve gone bananas (mangoes in this case) trying to figure out what to do with all these sweet juicy delicious mangoes! This recipe nail it! 😍

  2. Has anyone tried this with rice milk? Or soy ? I have a niece that is allergic to coconut and regular milk among so many other things. I really want to make this for her for our up coming family trip. Would really appreciate info from anyone that has tried it. TIA!

    1. Hi Janeth. This ice cream is made with coconut milk from a can and not a carton. Which is way more different than a carton milk. It is fatty. So, any milk from a carton won’t work unfortunately. How about this mango sorbet?

  3. Made this a week ago and everyone in my office loved it! About to try it with peaches and strawberries! Great refreshing treat.

  4. I’m trying this! My middle son, the one that can’t eat dairy, soy, eggs, so on and so like to put coconut ice cream into his shakes. We buy the Coconut Bliss and it’s expensive for a little tub and he goes through it like crazy. I may even invest in a ice cream maker… a simple one too! Also, I love reading Food Babe too. Lots of great information! I drink almond milk and I haven’t found one without carrageenan!

    1. I’m going grocery shopping tonight and will look at the Silk box to see if they removed it. I hope they have organic. I love my $25 ice cream maker! Check Superstore for one.

    1. Awe, you are so sweet. It’s Ukrainian. Very common name, like Jessica, nothing special in Ukraine. Probably sounds cool in America LOL. Enjoy recipes and be healthy!!!

  5. Only 3 ingredients? This is so simple and looks delicious! I’ve heard of the banana ice cream but it doesn’t contain enough “fats”. This is the perfect substitution for store-bought ice-cream.
