3-Ingredient Mango Tango Coconut Ice Cream (Vegan)

How (naturally) sweet it is!

Choose carefully, and this light refreshing dessert can be made with just three ingredients - and more good news - in a regular blender.

Look for:
Ripe Ataulfo mangoes
Tangy juicy limes
Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk 

Even better with cut strawberries, peaches, kiwis, or fresh berries, serve this beautiful, healthy mango ice cream any time you're feeling tropical ~

1. Cut the mangoes as shown in the video here. Spread out the chunks on a parchment-lined sheet or plates, and put in the freezer for 4 hours, or overnight.

2. Place the frozen mangoes, lime juice, and coconut milk in a blender. Mix until everything turns into a creamy liquid. Leave some mango bits if possible.

3. Taste for personal preference: add honey or maple syrup, vanilla, or pinch of salt as desired.

Contains guar gum that
prevents ice crystal buildup.
