Mango Duet Ice Cream or simply Mango Vanilla Popsicle is such a delicious summer treat, made with the goodness of mangoes and creamy vanilla flavored milk. It is very easy to make, fun to look at and tasty to have!
Every so often, I keep looking for food props, plates, bowls and anything that I can use to improve my food photography. Last summer, I was looking for a popsicle mould that met my requirements and just couldn’t find one. During the core months of winter, I found something I liked and been saving it for months to make popsicles and share over here. That’s how those Creamy Chocolate Fudge Pops happened.
I had a line-up of popsicle recipes coming up, but then I fell sick and all my plans had to be put on hold. That’s when I happened to look at an amazing offer on one of the popsicle moulds I had been eying since long and I treated myself to a gift! Yes, I gifted myself and that’s the best kind if you ask me 🙂 Tovolo Groovy Popsicle mould is so good that I am inspired to make a few more popsicle recipes. Today it is one of my most favorites – Mango Vanilla Popsicle or Mango Duet Recipe!
Enough about my popsicle moulds and now onto the recipe – Mango Vanilla Popsicle! If you are an ice cream addict like me, you must have definitely known or even tried the Mango Duet Pops! It is a creamy mixture of mango and vanilla ice creams – making it one of the most divine ice cream combinations. Since I had the best mangoes (remember the Mango Sago Kheer), I decided to make these Mango Vanilla Popsicle as soon as my new popsicle mould arrived!
I am very much in love with this new popsicle mould and if you would like one for yourself, check out the below link –
Authentically to make vanilla ice cream, it is best to use fresh cream and condensed milk. Since I didn’t want these Mango Vanilla Popsicles to be loaded with calories and at the same time, allow my parents to enjoy them as well, I used milk. The problem with using just milk for making ice creams is that it can crystalize instead of being creamy. So I used corn flour as the thickening agent and it was just perfect! Luscious thick mango pulp and the creamy vanilla ice cream makes this Mango Duet Ice Cream oh-so-delicious 🙂 Do give it a try this summer.
If you don’t have popsicle moulds, don’t fret. Pour these mixtures in plastic cups or even paper cups, once they are half way set, insert an ice cream stick. Making stuff at home is simple and there always are workarounds! The best part about making these Mango Vanilla Popsicle or Mango Duet Pops at home is that, there are no preservatives, no hydrogenated fats or chemicals! All natural, best ingredients and the taste is unbeatable!
