They're ripening fast and we won't be able to eat them all, so our friends always share in the bounty. Pam's making a mango dessert to take to a get-together tonight. Not sure what's in it but she asked me to buy some white rum and shredded coconut yesterday, and that's all I know.
Cheater’s mango ice-cream
2/3 to 3/4 of a tub of plain vanilla ice-cream, softened almost to room temperature
the flesh of 2 ripe mangoes
Let the ice-cream soften till it’s almost runny. Puree the flesh of the mangoes in a food processor. Stir the pureed mango into the ice-cream and mix it in well. Put into the freezer.
After 2 hours, take the ice-cream out of the freezer and whip the ice-cream, to break up the ice crystals. Re-freeze. After another hour or so, do the same thing again, whipping the almost-frozen ice-cream. That should make the ice-cream nice and smooth.
