How’s everyone doing? I’ve been having such a good time lately, enjoying the few days with nice weather outside, so I haven’t spend much time home. Sadly the rain is back, it always comes and goes, so it is all about attitude, and like they say: “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, but learning to dance in the rain”.
My weekend was full of laughs, fun, walks, hikes and so much sun! It was perfect.
Anyways, a few months ago I made this dessert while I was in my “boom” for mangos, I think I seriously ate at least a hundred during the winter, I was buying boxes and boxes every week. But thank goodness I’m done with mangos for a while, I’ve been having so much variety in my food lately and I’m loving it!
This won’t take you time at all! As you know, must of the time I try to do simple things that you can do without much preparation, you can even make this a pudding if you can’t wait for the fruit to get frozen.
Ok, so first I have to tell you I tried this with both banana and mango and I personally preferred banana ice cream, the good thing is that you have both options and you can use whatever you have on hand.
Mango-Cookie Dough Ice Cream
2 big mangos, frozen
1/2 cup dates, pitted
1/4 cup raisins
Handful of grapes, seedless and halved
First, blend your mangos until creamy, you can follow this mango ice cream recipe.
Using a food processor, blend your dried fruits until you get a dough consistency, or if you want to, try this delish cookies or this ones I made during the holidays, and just give them the shape of small balls.
Serve your ice cream over a cup or bowl and top with grapes and cookie dough. You can use any type of fruit, I would have used some berries but they were out of season. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Well, as you can see this is super simple and the best part is that you can change the ingredients depending on your preferences and taste! Let me know if you like it, I always love to hear your feedback!
Have a great week everyone, talk to you very soon!
