Mango Frozen Yogurt | Desserts Recipes

Hailing from a tropical country, Summer means Mango to me. I remember the days when we ate basketful of mangoes on a single day, and I am not kidding. No peeling or chopping, just eating it by the fruit. We even had a couple of mango trees in our backyard which yielded a bountiful every year. Mangoes were also a part of many dishes like Mango Rice and Mango Pachadi. After coming to the US, I was introduced to using Mangoes in Lassi and muffins. Mango flavored anything, I love 'em all. To me it reminds me the carefree childhood days of summer, visiting grandparents, meeting cousins and having loads of fun.
Serves - 2
Ripe Mango - 1 (about 1 cup chopped)
Greek Yogurt, preferable whole milk - 1/2 cup
Sugar - 2-3 tbsp
Select a ripe mango, which is not too soft. A mango with a very sweet smell is ripe and perfect for this recipe. Peel the mango and chop into pieces, and remove the seed. Puree in a blender until smooth. Add the yogurt and the sugar. Blend again. Transfer to a glass container with lid. Place a parchment paper touching the top layer and cover with lid. Freeze for a couple of hours. Remove and blend again. Repeat the freeze (with parchment paper on) and blend process again. Freeze until ready to serve. When serving transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with a sprig of mint.. yumm..
Alternatively, if you have an ice-cream maker, transfer the blended ingredients after the yogurt and sugar addition to the ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
