  • 4 cups mango puree
  • ½ cup simple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • cup heavy cream


  • Make sure your ice cream maker insert is frozen and your simple syrup has cooled (see recipe below).
  • If you are making your own puree, remove the peel and cut up 3-4 large ripe mangos. Place the pieces into a blender and blend to puree. Strain if desired and chill until you are ready to use it.
  • Place the mango puree, lime juice, and simple syrup into a blender and blend until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the heavy cream. Cover and place the mixture into the fridge to chill, for at least 3 hours, more if possible.
  • Once chilled, pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn for 25-30 minutes. Transfer the mixture into a sealable container and freeze for a minimum of 2 hours. Serve and enjoy!


  • Don't forget to freeze your ice cream maker at least a day before making your gelato.
  • You can also make the simple syrup and the puree ahead of time.
  • A blender is nice to mix together the puree, lime juice, and simple syrup, however, you can also use a hand mixer or a whisk and some elbow grease.
  • If you are making fresh mango puree, you may want to strain the puree before using it. I didn't and had a few organic chunks in my gelato, but it didn't bother me.
  • For the best results, allow the gelato to freeze overnight (if you can wait that long!).
  • Lemon juice can be used as a substitute for lime juice. Just make sure it is freshly squeezed citrus juice!
How to make simple syrup: Simple syrup is easy to make with equal parts sugar and water. For this recipe, I recommend at least 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar. Bring both ingredients to a boil, stirring occasionally, and allow the mixture to boil for 2-3 minutes.
