Fresh mango, coconut and lime ice cream
Yields approximately 1 pint
- 1 pound (about 3 cups) fresh mango slices
- 3/4 cup refrigerated coconut milk
- 1/2 cup all natural Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream creamer
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 lime, juiced
- Pinch sea salt
- Place the mango, coconut milk, Coffee-mate, sugar, lime juice and sea salt in a food processor, and blend until smooth.
- Transfer to a container and refrigerate for at least one hour.
- Spoon the mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.
- Serve immediately or transfer mixture to covered container and freeze to enjoy later.
If you don't have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture for about an hour then use a hand mixer to blend it until smooth. Freeze the mixture again for another hour and blend again. Continue this process 3-4 times to create a creamy consistency. After freezing for the last time and the ice cream is solid, scoop and serve!
