Magnificent Mango Ice Cream

"Note: COOKING TIME IS MACHINE TIME, does not include time in freezer. Having six mango trees within arms reach on our property, I'm a fanatic for mango recipes. The coconut rum gives it that truly tropical feel! We've tried so many mango ice cream recipes, including some really good ones. But one thing I've found is that the mouthfeel of all the heavy cream was a bit gross. Here is a recipe that combines and tweaks some of my favorites, and uses a bit of sweetened condensed milk instead of cream for that "just right" amount of creamy mouthfeel. This is a rich and creamy ice cream, and I think you'll find it VERY pleasing! If you're alcohol-free, you can omit the rum but after a few days the ice cream may be hard."

If you love mangoes like I do, this ice cream is for you! The flavor of the mangoes came through beautifully. My mangoes were nice and ripe and almost reaching that overripe stage if I would have let it go for a couple of more days. It was perfect for making ice cream. Hubs loved it too, which I was surprised, given that he is not a lover of mangoes as I am. Thank you for this yummy treat, JostLori!
