Making the most of the mango season

Blend the ripe mangoes into a fine pulp

Freshly churned mango ice-cream 

Mangoes are pure delight ! Exotic, fragrant, succulent, juicy, fleshy, refreshing - the adjectives are simply overflowing. And when its mango season in Thailand, a bountiful supply makes its way to Singapore. On average, each mango costs around $1 when the season is at its peak and it is my favourite family fruit to end a meal. When we go overboard with the mangoes, I would make ice cream with it blending the mangoes with a home made custard base of cream, egg yolks and sugar. It is then churned in the ice-cream maker for a delicious home blend, pure without any preservatives.
