Dairy free mango ice cream

Do you wince at the price and sugar content of shop-bought dairy free ice creams?

I am a sugar police – because sugar is damaging to gut health, bad for their teeth and overall health. So I like making my own ice creams at home because a) its way cheaper, and b) its way healthier!

I never use refined sugar. To sweeten my food, I use dates, maple syrup, banana puree.

This recipe would also sweeten well with a couple of pieces of pineapples if you don’t have dates, or you can use a tablespoon of maple syrup too. I like it with coconut milk, but you can also use almond milk or any dairy-free milk.

This comes out thick and creamy, however, if you like it a bit runnier and more like slushy, then add more coconut/almond milk
