Mango Ice Cream

As everyone who knows me will agree, I like a challenge! So when Tots100 challenged Bloggers to come up with a healthy summer recipe for kids, I decided to find one which was safe for MY kids, many of my readers and would be delicious for any who wanted to try, with or without allergies.

This is what I came up with!




My children much prefer the creamier texture of ice cream (albeit "Free From") to sorbet, and certainly an ice cream texture is more filling than the sugary watery mixture that is sorbet. But without an ice cream maker, I wasn't sure I could achieve this. I have tried unsuccessfully to use milks, it always goes runny. Then I had a lightbulb moment and decided to try RICE CREAM!

There are a few types available in Health Food Stores now, I have tried a few but my favourite is the Isola Rice Cream as it is really thick. You can buy it online too. Because it is thick, a little goes a long way - although it also means it needs a little more mixing in. it ALSO meant it was perfect for "ice cream"!


You could use Oatly cream if gluten is not a problem, soya cream if tolerated, coconut cream - you choose. And equally you could use a variety of fruit -supermarkets this year are selling bags of frozen fruit chunks and my chest freezer is full of them!

Ingredients

  • Rice Cream or your choice of alternative. I used 100mls for half a bag to test, so it would be 200ml for one whole bag of frozen fruit.
  • Frozen fruit of your choice! 

Tip - needs to be frozen or it will be a mushy mess in your food processor before it's whizzed up properly!

Method

  • Place both ingredients in the food processor and keep blending until it is mixed!
  • Transfer to a freezer proof container and freeze! 
  • Serve as desired :)

  4. Oh my gosh - this sounds divine! I make a mango ice-cream using cream (which I know you can't use) and mango, but this sounds a hundred times healthier - will have to source rice cream!
