Whenever I get the craving for mango ice cream, I rush to the nearby Indian restaurant. I still don’t understand why is it hard to find mango flavor in most of the Ice cream store. They have all kinds of flavors but mango. For me, mango and strawberry are my all time favorite ice cream flavors. Mango is one such fruit I had eaten a lot while growing up, this is because this particular fruit is immensely found in my home town. Mango trees are found in the backyard of almost all houses there. My grandparents backyard is packed with mango trees, they have varieties of mangoes each named differently, I can’t remember the names at this moment. I have had pretty much all of them and it was amazing how each variety tasted differently from others. Besides making desserts, smoothies, lassi with mangoes, we even make savory dishes with them. Both the raw and ripe fruit can be used for making different dishes.

When I visited my cousin last month, after the sumptuous dinner, she opened her dessert suspense, it was my favorite mango ice cream. I couldn’t believe it was homemade as it tasted just like restaurant style. When she started saying about the ingredients it had and the preparation method, I was even more stunned. All these years I had thought that making an ice cream in my kitchen is beyond my expertise, as it needed ice cream maker and other super ingredients. Hence I never cared to even peep into that section. So for me, ice cream means Haagen-dazs, in fact any brand would work for me as long as I get the ice cream taste. But after the successful attempt at making homemade mango ice cream, I don’t think I will ever have to rush to any restaurants or store if I get the craving, I can make it in my own kitchen with all confidence and I get to devour not one scoops but many scoop of ice cream.
