The last days of summer – time to enjoy some more ice cream!
Okay, actually… According to my very own definition summer is already over where I live. Oh well. You can still fetch it back to your
This is the kind of ice cream we enjoyed most this summer. Maybe I will even love this in winter – we’ll see!
One part I really love about it: You use dried mango instead of fresh! Just stock some dried mango and you’re fine! It’s that easy…
It’s super creamy, raw and does not contain bananas! As I mentioned before – I love bananas, but I don’t want every treat and dessert to have a banana flavor.
Last days of summer Mango Ice Cream
- 2 cups (300g) ice cubes
- half a carrot (medium sized)
- 1 nectarine, halved
- about 10 peaces of dried mango (50g or 1,7 oz)
- 2 tbsp agave syrup OR 15 drops stevia (or sweetener of choice)
Put everything in your heavy duty blender (I used a vita-mix) in the order they are listed. Use your tamper and blend until smooth (it will take about 1-2 minutes). Done. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
Yes, I sneaked in some carrot – it will yield a beautiful color and I promise – you won’t taste it!
As long as there’s hot tea and warm blankets – I bet I’ll still love this when winter is here!
This looks and sounds delicious! And I love how simple it is. I’ll have to try it asap!
yum, i am trying this tonight!

I am trying this out this weekend! Looks delicious and perfect for the end of summer :)
Ice cream for everyone!
Very jealous of where ever you live because it is still very much summer here! I can definitely enjoy some ice cream for a little while longer before warm-tea-and-blankets season comes :)

Now this is my kind of summer indulgence- Instant, effortless, and unexpectedly virtuous. I’ll definitely make this one any time of the year though!
If only I had dried mango’s this would be happening right now! Looks delish!

Just remember to get some next time you’re in the grocery store… you can store dried mango almost forever – that’s the big advantage! ;)
