Mango & Rosemary Ice-Cream

So I've kept you waiting for a long time to see what I had done with my Rosemary Powder. But here it is, and it's not a cake, shortbread, a pasta dish or focaccia, as some of you guessed. It's an Ice-cream!

I don't know what's happening in your side of the world, but here we're enjoying some extremely hot winter days, that make me crave refreshing ice-cream. Well to be honest, I crave ice-cream all the time, but you get the idea...

This is a very easy recipe and if you have everything on hand, it will take less than 2 minutes to make (plus churning time). And did I mention it's delicious? Well, it is! And refreshing!

MANGO & ROSEMARY ICE CREAM

  • 1 cup mango puree*
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp milk powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp rosemary powder

Combine all ingredients mixing very well (I´ve used an immersion blender) and churn in an ice-cream maker. Yes, it's that easy!

*Mango Puree: I've used store-bought puree that has 10% sugar.

Have you ever used herbs in ice-creams?

What a great way to use my rosemary! Oh but wait, I still have some left...

Hmmm, I'm curious to know how the rosemary tastes in it. Did you like it?

Our days here in the Sunshine State are hot, like in the 80's hot!

I've never had savory herbs with ice cream. Hmmm? You'll have to let me taste it to see if I'd like it. When can you be here? ;)
It certainly looks delicious!

I've been wanting to make mango ice cream or sorbet for a while now. Rosemary is an interesting addition. I like herbs in desserts. Basil is great with lemon and berry.

Mila Kassapian said...

Espectacular!!!! Puedo decir con propiedad que es una maravilla esta combinación. Yo preparé un parfait de Mango con Yerbabuena y es para morirse.
Sabes que combinación es super rica, sobre todo para los días de calor porque es también muy refrescante, Sorbete de limón con tomillo.
Un beso!

Juliana said...

dessertobsessed said...

wow this is so creative!! i love your blog!

Zita said...

Yumm...mango & rosemary, brilliant for icecream, I've used mint leaves in ice cream, but in compare to this, it doesn't count as herbs, does it?:)

Cakebrain said...

Geez! how creative! I'm glad you used the rosemary powder in a dessert! It may be hot where you're living, but it's still winter here...I wouldn't mind some hot weather and a huge bowl of your ice-cream!

noble pig said...

I think this was a brilliant idea. Why not, I bet it was refreshing.

Kevin said...

Mango ice cream sounds so good. I would not have thought to use rosemary but I like the sound of it.

Irene said...

COOL!!!

FFichiban said...

Oh woooww what an interesting use of your rosemary powder! I am very intrigued and really want to try some XD

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Great combination. I am really enjoying experimenting with rosemary in sweet desserts these days.

Noor said...

Now those are some flavors I would never expect in my ice cream, looks interesting.

RecipeGirl said...

I would definitely be excited to try this one. I've done rosemary in a few desserts and have been quite pleased w/ the results. Looks wonderful!

Kendra said...

What a combo! Love it...

I left you some awards on my blog. Swing by and pick them up :)

Maris said...

What a nice combination! Rosemary powder sounds so interesting.

morgana said...

Hala, qué cosa más buena, por dios. Me encantan los mangos, es una de mis frutas preferidas, y ahora me muero por saber cómo están con el romero. Tendré que probarlo. ;-)

Por cierto, que el otro día, intentando borrar los comentarios repetidos de "cómo hacer los chips de choco" en mi blog, al final borré todos los que me habías dejado y no me ha quedado ni uno. Sorry. Es lo que pasa cuando hago estas cosas medio dormida y agotada.

Un besazo.

Jo, qué pinta tiene el helado, voy a verlo otra vez.

Suzana said...

You have some left?? I can help! ;)

Está de facto uma Primavera a cheirar a Verão e a chamar ao geladinho. Manga e rosmaninho é uma bela combinação!

Beijos, dona cookie!

Janna said...

It sounds refreshing and looks super creamy. I can't wait for it to be a little warmer...

bentayga con sabor said...

Helado de mango con romero suena hasta romántico...tiene que estar buenísimo y con ese toque a romero ha de salirse de lo que estamos acostumbrados.

Carrian said...

Delicious! I've tried a few variations of your recipe and found that 1.5 tsp rosemary powder works well. Made some for our last staff party and they're still talking about it.
