With the deliciousness of mango and the flavors of pista, this mango pista icecream is a must have for summers!
I have grown up eating home made mango ice creams, and this mango pista icecream is one of my favorites!
I still remember every summer when mum or if she is busy, dad, would make mango ice cream. We would keep on peeping in the fridge all day long to see if the icrecream was frozen or not. In the end, we would get scolded by mom or dad for opening the fridge way too often. And course, there would no ice cream but that didn’t prevent us from going ahead and eating the half frozen ice cream too 🙂 Aah the joy of childhood.
So with those memories in place,I set out to make mango ice cream some days back. And I could see the same cycle repeating. Instead of me opening the fridge, it was Ojas this time and I could see myself turning into my mom and skipping a beat every time he opened it 🙂 But all in all, the ice cream turned out brilliant and I enjoyed the whole getting back to my childhood and reliving those memories.
Though I remember mom going through the laborious process of boiling and reducing milk I decided to take the easy way out. The no cook easy milkmaid ice cream 🙂 And the texture and the taste of the ice-cream is amazing. The mango and pista flavors mix really well.
If you are like me and love mangoes, you can actually experiment this ice-cream with different types of mango. It tastes amazing. Of course, I must confess, I love mangoes of all kinds. It is evident if you do a search for mangoes on my blog. There will be so many mango based recipes 🙂
