mango coconut ice-cream (AIP)

If you’ve been following on Facebook, you’ll know that I was spoilt with an ice-cream maker for Christmas (a fancy one with in-built compressor so half the freezer isn’t taken up with the frozen bowl).  Very spoilt!  The first attempt was a DIVINE nutella gelato, but now that Christmas is over and the healthy eating starts to creep back in, I have made this mango coconut ice-cream.  It’s dairy free, gluten free, paleo and even AIP compliant!

mango coconut icecreamLet’s be real, it’s not nutella gelato BUT for the cold creamy ice-creamy sensation, it’s pretty good and uber simple with just 3 ingredients.

  • flesh of 3 mangos

  • 1 large can coconut cream (mine was 560ml)
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  1. Blitz the mangos in a blender, add coconut cream and honey and blend until combined.
  2. Place in the fridge for 4 hours or over night if possible.
  3. Churn in an ice-cream maker for 30-40 minutes.
  4. Eat immediately for the best creamy consistency.

If you want to store it for another day, put into a container (or little ones for portion control).  You will need to take it out of the freezer for at least 20 mins before you want to eat it as it gets very hard.

This dessert is a total winner! We had some fabulous friends over for dinner last night – I had had a request for pulled pork tacos so that was the main course. Sadly no left overs for today. As for dessert I was on a quest to come up with a delicious healthy dessert that was as close to paleo and AIP as possible but not look and taste like  weirdo diet food. I don’t even really know what to call it- one friend said ‘heaven on a plate’ and another ‘crumble-pie’, so here it is. I think I am officially in love with coconut!
