Ok so clearly at this point my mango obsession is not a secret. And to be honest, I'm not actively looking for things to do with mangoes, as I love mangoes in their natural element. But I had some that were starting to turn and I was feeling creative, so I whipped up a mango cheesecake (recipe to come later) and mango ice cream.

wow this looks SO great! and what a cool idea making a raw frozen creamy ice cream as opposed to sorbet, i love your's so funny i *just* checked out from the library a book called "the vegan scoop" by wheeler del torro, full of 150 vegan ice cream recipes, and i was thinking i might need to buy an ice cream maker...your post convinced me, i'm getting one!

are you in toronto? if so, go to caynes super houseware store. I got my cuisinart ice cream maker with an extra bowl for 50$ or something ridiculous like that (this one: And seriously, have never looked back. It's amazing!! It's one of the less expensive cuisinart models and is absolutely fab.

book sounds delish. can't wait to see the things you make from it!

Nancy said…
That looks so good. Wow. I love mangos more than words can say. And in ice cream form? And raw? That's 3 of my favorite things. I must try this out.

Hi Selene,

I just started following your blog recently and I love your dishes! Can this ice cream be made without an ice cream maker? Like your recipe for the raw vanilla ice cream?

Selene said…
Thanks for the comments!

Sharan - I haven't tried it without an ice cream maker. But I say give it a shot! The worst thing that can happen is that it freezes solid, in which case just let it thaw a bit before enjoying.
Let me know how it goes!

Wow...that looks great and I bet the flavor is awesome!

THIS IS RIDICULOUS. I was JUST thinking to myself this morning how I need to make a mango version of raw ice cream. Although I intended on using frozen banana, but avocado is such a better idea. It looks like gelato! You're from toronto so if you get a chance check out the store delight, it's really good. The ice cream I doubt is raw but it's vegan, and made with orange juice as a sugar and coconut milk as the base.

This looks absolutely delicious! I'm definitely going to try it the next time I get some mangoes.

I think I'll try this one...I am not fond of cashew based ice creams, and I'm a huge fan of mango... looks great!
Elisa said…
Whoa, I just made this and it is seriously good and creamy. I was looking for a raw ice cream recipe that wouldn't harden up (like you said) and came across your post. I used the whole avocado instead of just half and a 1/4 cup of dates instead of 1/3 and it still worked out. Thank you for the great recipe.

I'm building my meal plan to allow for leftovers, because in any meal plan, really, leftovers are kind of needed to get by timewise.

A note on raw eating...I am trying to achieve a high raw lifestyle, meaning that 90-95% of what I'm eating is raw. However, when it comes to spices and oils and tamari, I am often not opting for the raw versions. For spices and oils, this is a matter of accessibility (other than coconut oil, which is easy and inexpensive to acquire); although I am going to try to find and use more whole versions of the spices (like the tumeric root and cardamon pods, for instance), it will still be very hard to determine whether these are raw. For tamari, this is because nama shoyu (the raw version) contains gluten, which I am allergic to. Now, you could go with bragg's soy sauce-like product, but I don't use enough o…

I already toted the many amazing benefits of sesame seeds here so we'll skip that part in this post and go straight to the awesomeness that is tahini.

Raw tahini is delightfully easy, and inexpensive, to make. And you can do such awesome things with it! I personally love using tahini as salad dressing. And when I discovered you could make a delicious cheese sauce with it...!! You can't really tell from the photo, but this makes a deliciously creamy and cheesy sauce that you can use on zucchini linguine, or for kale chips, or really just about anywhere that cheesy goodness could go (which is pretty much anywhere). The cheesy tahini broccoli is my version of Julie Morris's awesome recipe. While you're there check out her other recipes, yum they sure do look good!

Ok, it's been a great great weekend for many reasons: went to an amazing clothing swap put on by V. A. S. T., went to my adorable niece's birthday party, attended a wonderful raw potluck (yum!!), and went to my uncle and dad's joint bday lunch at my uncle's place. And to make everything even better, there were amazing people and conversations throughout it all!

So that part has been great. Of course, all the family get togethers mean that I haven't been eating as raw as I normally do. And I'm really noticing how much better my body does when I'm eating mostly raw. I feel much more grossly full and sluggish on cooked foods. And my throat is burning as it's giving me some serious acid reflux issues. I've also been on this stupid cleanse (I bought it a long time ago and figured I had better use it …
