Mango ice cream with coconut sprinkles
Serve up sunshine in a slice with this fabulous mango ice cream. Top with crispy cardamom-scented coconut, or enjoy as is – it’s delicious either way
- Serves: 10 persons
- 400ml double cream
- 100ml condensed milk
- 200ml mango pulp
- 2tbsp milk powder
- 100g coconut flakes
- 3tbsp maple syrup
- 10cardamom pods, seeds crushed using a pestle and mortar, pods discarded
- pinch of sea salt flakes
Step 1Line a 900g loaf tin with baking parchment, leaving some overhanging to help you lift out the ice cream later. Whisk the cream and condensed milk together in a large bowl until well combined. Add the mango pulp and milk powder, then whisk until completely smooth and slightly thickened. Pour into the loaf tin and freeze for at least 5 hrs or overnight until solid. Will keep frozen for up to two months.
Step 2To make the sprinkles, heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 6 and spread the coconut flakes over a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Drizzle over the maple syrup, then season with the crushed cardamom seeds and a generous pinch of sea salt flakes. Mix well using a spatula, then bake for 8 mins until golden. Leave to cool completely on the tray. Will keep in an airtight container for a week.
Step 3Take the ice cream out of the freezer 15 mins before serving. Use the baking parchment to lift it out of the tin, then invert onto a serving plate and peel away the parchment. Sprinkle over the coconut, then cut into thick slices to serve.
