Happy Father’s Day – Mango Buttermilk Ice-cream

My mother made an amazing and coma-inducing Indian meal for Father’s Day. Think mughlai chicken, saag paneer, mint potatoes, kidney bean curry (rajmah) and basmati rice flavored with spices (see below).

This fresh churned mango buttermilk ice-cream (variation of Strawberry Buttermilk Ice-cream) was the perfect end to a perfect meal.  It tasted like mango lassi transformed into an ice-cream.  There is something very satisfying about eating ice-cream right after it is made.  Plus the kids really enjoyed watching it being churned in the ice-cream maker and of course eating it!

Mango Buttermilk Ice Cream

2 cups low-fat buttermilk

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1 cup mango puree

1 tbsp sugar (optional – depends on sweetness of mangoes/mango puree)

pinch of ground cardamom (optional)

Whisk all the ingredients together and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes or more.  Transfer it into an ice cream maker following the manufacturers directions.

Serve it soft right away or put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set up a little bit more.  We ate it right away!!  All of it!

  1. Even though the ice-cream is light and almost like a sorbet, don’t make a lick of difference if you stuff yourself with mom-in-law’s food before.

  2. Oh Wow! I love Indian food. Indian cuisine was the first ethnic cuisine I really enjoyed when I first immigrated here to the US.

    Also, do you think the ice cream would be good with lychee? Thinking of substituting the mango for lychee?

  3. Did you say mango lassi transformed into ice cream? I’m sold! I can never have a proper Indian meal without indulging in a little mango lassi! And I love saag paneer – I would love a good recipe (hint hint) 🙂

    Congrats on Top 9 today!

  4. This looks like the best father day post ever! The kids seem to love this ice- cream! It looks easy, I will try it at home with my kid. And oh wow the roti looks delicious!

  5. Mango Buttermilk ice-cream sounds so tasty. I never had mango ice-cream before. Looking at this photo makes me want to try it. Thanks for the post… i am going to try this. Love it!!!!!

  6. p.s. it would be fun to make a version of this mango icecream with fresh coconut milk! or how about frozen yoghurt version?

  7. I’m obsessed with this ice cream – I’m making blueberry buttermilk tonight for my birthday celebration tomorrow. I’ll post about it in a week or two, and be sure to link back to you. Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. hello!

    But if I dont have ice-cream maker, can I make this also, or ice-cream maker is recuired?
    Sound very easy and tasty recipe!

    • I am not sure how it would turn out. I have never made an ice-cream without an ice-cream maker. I think instructions can be found on some websites how to do it w/o an ice-cream maker but it is a longer process…
