Mango Cherry Frozen Yogurt healthy icecream summer treat dessert

It’s literally raining mangoes! Sweet, juicy and so luscious. No meal is complete without this fruit, it seems. All kinds of mango desserts abound in every home. And I’m bringing my Mango Cherry Frozen Yogurt to this mango party!

Summer is really all about icecreams isn’t it? Its one of my favourite foods, but then the lactose intolerance stops me from eating  it. A scoop, once in a while, is the most I can handle, sadly. Not that it stops me from making icecream for the fam. But the good news is that yogurt agrees with me, and so enter Mango Cherry Frozen Yogurt. A treat I can eat heaps of!

Frozen yogurts are the easiest to whip up. There is no custard base to make, no heating of milk/ cream. The simple mixture of fruits, yogurt and sugar can be frozen in the freezer and churned a couple of times before letting it freeze for 6-8 hours. But a good icecream maker like this one from KITCHENIF INDIA does all the work for you. Once you’ve chilled the icecream/ frozen yogurt mixture, this machine churns it for you and in twenty minutes, you have an icecream or frozen yogurt ready to eat! My mango cherry frozen yogurt was ready in a soft serve form in less than twenty! If you want a slightly harder / scoopable consistency, it’s better to freeze the frozen yogurt for a few hours.

This wonderful recipe has been adapted from DAVID LEBOVITZ ‘S THE PERFECT SCOOP .  For all icecream lovers, I can’t recommend this book enough. Its got a plethora of recipes to satisfy every icecream craving of yours!

As recommended, please use Greek yogurt ( plain) or homemade full fat yogurt that’s been strained for really creamy results.  The amount of sugar you use depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. The ones I used were very sweet and so were the cherries that went in here. And so I cut down on the amount of sugar I used. A  little bit of fresh lemon juice  balanced the taste and we got a gorgeous, creamy, lush treat so flavoursome  and far superior in quality compared to the  commercially made frozen yogurts.  Healthy foods don’t have to be boring. Real ingredients, without any help of artificial flavourings, colours and trans fats, are enough to make our food delicious!

Ingredients
  • 400 ml Greek yogurt, plain
  • 2 Mangoes, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp Fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Cherries, pitted and chopped
Instructions
  1. Blend the mangoes, yogurt, lemon juice and sugar in a blender until completely smooth. Taste and adjust for sweetness. Chill the mixture thoroughly ( I recommend overnight) and add it to the icecream maker according to the manufacturer's instruction.
  2. Add in the cherries to the churning mixture in about ten minutes. Continue with the icecream makers instructions.
  3. Once the icecream is ready, in about 20 minutes, you can serve it immediately or turn it out in a pan and freeze it for 6- 8 hours to get a slightly harder/ scoopable consistency. Scoop into bowls/ cones, serve immediately. Enjoy!

I miss my mother’s self made kulfu as it was my favorite summer treat. She used to try different flavours Everytime and I used to love tasting them all. It’s been 4 years now that I have been living away from my mother, but every summer I miss her delicious kulfi. I would love to gift this ice cream maker to her as she is getting old and it would make things simple for her.

My favourite summer treats are Himayat mangoes from Hyderabad that my father send for me every summer. They sweet and full of flavour and would love to make them into an ice cream. The other treat I truly enjoy is bel Ka sherbet. Would love to make it into a granita and top it with lemon and mint. I have posted on your Instagram handle as @butterpaneer

This looks crazy good! My favourite summer treat is ice-cream without a doubt, my favourite flavour being salt butter caramel. Bits of crushed brownie pieces would make it divine! And bacon with salt butter caramel sounds quite interesting too, though I’ve never tried it. ❤️
