How was your weekend? Did you do anything mischievous, out of character or just plain ‘ol fun? If you did, you must tell me all about it! I not only live vicariously through you, but I also like to look for a bit of inspo when letting loose during my summer adventures.

It’s just… sometimes I feel like we’re so focused all year-long. Focused on work. Focused on finances. Focused on family. Focused on all the responsibility and etc. But what about the super important and completely necessary, but oft-ignored time to just chill? To just relax, unwind and let the breeze run through your hair?

That’s what today’s super easy homemade mango ice cream recipe is all about: letting yourself unwind, relax and just let that tropical summer breeze run through your hair. Or at least taste like it. In your mouth, not your hair. Oh, you know what I mean.

A long time ago, I started associating mangoes with the tropics and the tropics with relaxation, sunshine, and happiness. So you will join me in making, then scooping up two big scoops of this homemade mango ice cream, then enjoying the tropical flavors and just… relaxing? 🙂

  1. This looks awesome and I’d love to try and make it 🙂 – is there an approximate amount in grams for one cup of frozen mango?

    1. Hi Chittoor, this site is purely online based. 😉 No shop or phone number is available. 🙂

    1. Hi Carissa! As long as you cut the mangoes into cubes and freeze it first before you blend it, it should work just fine! Let me know how it turns out!

  2. That looks amazing! I’m lactose intolerant so it’s hard always skipping out on ice cream. This seems like the perfect substitute!

  3. Wonderfully delicious!!!, a big hit !! and it was gone in minutes. I had to prepare lunch for a little event And was looking for a delicious Simple vegan dessert to go with my banana bread. And I just happened To have quite a few mangoes on hand which I cut- up and froze the night before. This recipe was so easy and quick to make, I followed your instructions and froze it overnight, when I got to the event I let it sit out for a couple hours it was perfect, and ready to serve after lunch, everyone wanted seconds, thank You for this Simple healthy and delicious recipe, I will be using it on a regular basis.

    1. Woohoo!! I’m so happy to hear that this was such a success for you, Marcia! 🙂 Such a great idea to let it sit out for a few hours in advance–that’s when the texture gets perfectly creamy. Thank you for taking the time to tell me how it all worked out for you. I truly appreciate it! .

    1. Hi Kamania, full-fat coconut milk is the kind that’s not marked “lite” or “light.” It’s mostly coconut cream instead of coconut juice. Enjoy!

  4. Great. Was simple to make with ingredients I had in the house. I put into popsicles because it was the only container I had available and it worked out well.

    1. Oh gosh, this must’ve been amazing as a popsicle! I was actually wondering how that would taste. 😉 So glad you enjoyed them Leah. Thanks for letting me know! 🙂

  5. Thank you for this great recipe! I had a few ripe mangos, as well as some coconut milk and maple syrup handy in the pantry. I cut up the mangos the night before and put the ingredients in the Vitamix in the morning. It was the perfect amount of sweetness without any refined sugars and ready by lunchtime.






    1. My pleasure, Tiffany! Ohhh, just the sound of those ripe mangoes makes me crave this ice cream again! Hehe. So happy to hear that you enjoyed my recipe. Thanks so much for reporting back. 🙂 Can’t wait to see what you try next!

    1. Hi Sue, at this time, no. 🙁 I’m currently working on adding nutritional info to the recipes on my site. Thank you for your patience. 🙂

    1. Hi Lali, I recommend using the can of full-fat coconut milk–it has coconut cream and coconut water/juice in it. If you used canned coconut cream, you’d have to figure out how much coconut water/juice to add in to make up for the full-fat can. Sorry!

      1. Hi Demeter,

        Thanks for the recipe. Just a point of clarification. Coconut “milk” is made from the white “meat” from dried coconuts blended with water. These can only come from dried coconuts that you’d find on a coconut shy.

        Coconut “water” comes from the green coconuts fresh from the coconut palm. As the coconuts age and turn brown the “water” inside becomes brackish and wouldn’t be used to make coconut milk.

        The little water left in a dried coconut would be thrown away…not added to anything I think..

        Regards

  6. This looks amazing!
    Demeter I was wondering if I could use mango pulp instead of frozen mango as that’s what I have on hand? If so, would you be able to kindly indicate approximately how much would be the equivalent?
    Thanks so much

    1. Hi Xena, thank you! 🙂 It might just work–be sure to use frozen mango pulp (or freeze into cubes for easier blending). When frozen mango is blended, it becomes deliciously creamy. My best guess for the amount is about 2 1/4 cups liquid mango pulp. I’m not 100% sure, so be prepared for some kitchen experimenting. Can’t wait to hear how it turns out! 🙂

    1. Hi T! Yes you can. The only thing is that it will change the texture of the ice cream. Mangoes tend to add a delicious creaminess. With strawberries or blackberries, you might get more of a sorbet texture. Can’t wait to hear how it turns out! 🙂

  7. We saw this today and ran out to get the mangos. I can’t wait to have some with our cookout tonight!

    1. Awesome!! I hope you got a chance to try and just loved it, Terri. Hope you had a wonderful cookout! 🙂

  8. I completely agree with you and as I write this I’m getting ready to relax (um, with a house full of people)…I love the pairing of fruit and ice cream (I’m working on a fruit coulis recipe right now).

    Happy 4th! 🙂






    1. Lol on relaxing with a house full of people. That should be SUPER easy, right? . Hope you had an awesome 4th! 🙂

    1. Sometimes all ya need is a double scoop to get the good, chill vibes going. 😉 Hoping you have an awesome week, Marsha! xo

  9. This ice cream sounds amaaaaazing! I’m all about mango right now (and always) and could probably eat an entire pint of this 🙂

  10. I totally agree! We seemed to be so focused on everything, that we forget to relax and have fun! I would gladly relax with a scoop (or five) of this gorgeous ice cream! Love that this is just three ingredients, Demeter! And that color! Love it! Pinned! Hope your Monday is off to a great start!

    1. Right? It’s high time we all take a good, long break. Or at least a high-quality break. 🙂 Thanks for pinning! Wishing you an awesome week ahead! 🙂

  11. Demeter – you sure are right – I’ve been feeling like I’ve been running on fumes…IN Circles and I NEED a break – and that break would be even better with two or three scoops of this 3 Ingredient Mango Coconut Vegan Ice Cream! You know how you mentioned mangoes remind ya of the topics and chilling…lady, one day you must come to Atlanta and visit the Buford Highway Farmers Market – so many tropical fruits – you might just wanna take a nap there! 🙂
    xoxo

    1. Oh goodness, sounds like you need a break more than I do! Alright, it’s time to dial it all down and start planning your next vacay. 🙂 Hopefully one with a few or more scoop of this mango ice cream! 😉 I will totally visit that market if I ever go to Atlanta. Thanks for the tip, Shashi! 🙂 xoxo
