I’ve always wanted to make ice cream,  but getting an ice cream maker seemed like just one more kitchen gadget that I might use once or twice and then just gather dust in my cupboard…. a bit like my bread maker.   Instead I wanted to try making Ice Cream the NO CHURN way…   This simple recipes with just 5 ingredients let’s me do that and is super flexible.   This one uses Pineapple and Mango, which my kids love, but now that the peaches are in season I think a Peach Mango combo would be excellent also.    I always try to shop local and use fresh in any of my recipes, but frozen fruit works here too.

No Churn Tropical Ice Cream

No gadgets required, and easy to assemble, the ONLY problem with this recipe is that you have to plan ahead.  It needs about 5 hours in the freezer before you can dig into this deliciousness!

Results?  This super smooth and creamy No Churn Tropical Ice Cream.   My kids all love Mango, and having some fruit in the rich dessert makes me feel like it has some “healthy” elements to it.

You can adjust the fruit to your families favourites, sub in frozen fruit, or use what’s fresh at the farmers market.  Fresh seasonal fruit is always the most flavourful and I like buying local when I can.
