Frozen| Mango Frozen Yogurt … guilt free indulgence

“My advice to you is not to inquire why or whither, but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate. That’s my philosophy.”
Thornton Wilder

Mango Frozen YogurtThey don’t call the MANGO the king of fruits for nothing! We are well & truly into mango season here in North India, and this luscious, juicy fruit is keeping us happy! To keep in tune with the dieting divas low fat diet, this turned out to be a perfect fit … a Mango Frozen Yogurt which tasted every bit like an ice-cream, rich, smooth & divine, but was sans the cream!Mango Frozen Yogurt Maybe it was the magic of the Thermomix, or maybe this contraption I bought from Sydney recently. Whatever it was, maybe just good proportions, but this was a winner, a perfect fit for July, the National Ice Cream Month.SydneyWhile in Sydney last month, I couldn’t help a quick dash to Victoria’s Basement, a store I love to spend time at. Every nook & cranny is packed with tasteful and exciting things, be it kitchenware, cookware, ceramics, bakeware, small handy gadgets. I got just an hour in the store, and it was like a mad dash. I raced through the store at top speed, grabbing whatever I thought was on my list {and loads that wasn’t}.

One such buy was this Cuisipro – Greek Yoghurt/Yoghurt Cheese Maker. The cheese lover in me looked at it longingly for a precious 10 minutes, then put it back because it was for $20 and I thought it might not be worth it. Mr PAB literally forced me to take it, and that was my best buy this visit. { Disclaimer: I have not been paid to write about the product or the shop. I just love both and thought this worth sharing}.Mango Frozen Yogurt It’s just an innovative little box with a uniquely designed stainless steel strainer that fits within. You ladle your yogurt into it, shut it and leave it in the fridge overnight {or 3 days as in my case} … and voilà! Like magic I got this beautiful very think hung yogurt that I could cut into cubes too.Mango Frozen Yogurt One look at it and I knew there was mango fro yo in the very near future! I had planned on making mango ice cream {with the MacTweets Ice Cream Dreams theme in mind}, but eventually fatless my ice cream was going to be! {I made my hung yogurt with homemade fat free yogurt}.Mango Frozen Yogurt Turned out GREAT! I blitzed frozen diced mango & chilled hung yogurt in the Thermomix which is pure magic for stuff like this. The blades are S T R O N G and result in a mean puree! In the freezer for 3 hours and I was serving pretty yellow scoops! NICE!! I attempted making some pistachio macarons as well, but the high heat and humidity here had other plans … and my feet failed. Not sure if I’ll have time to try baking macarons again this month as our little pooch {Coco} is turning out to be quite a full time job. Look at her. She is the cutest but naughtiest little thing, and currently races around the house like a little rabbit!

  1. This looks amazing! I love mangoes and the idea of eating them in ice cream is sensational. I must say, your puppy is adorable.

  2. Wow looks delicious and coco looks so cute

  3. That frozen yogurt must be exquisite! Coco is sooooo cute.

    Cheers,

    Rosa

  4. Delectable! It looks simple wonderfully mouthwatering Deeba! I am missing the Indian mangoes1

  5. I love the Alphonso mangos that I get from my local Indian shop, but that season is over here, you can’t get them now. You can buy alphonso mango puree though. I don’t have a thermomix, but I do have an ice cream maker, and I’m determined to make a great frozen yogurt.
    THis really looks fabulous!
    *kisses* HH

  6. Sunny and cheerful yogurt!
    Love coco’s shade.

  7. I love this ice cream! Indeed it’s so easy to whip up these things with a Thermomix. I will replicate it soon! ;)

  8. Aw, your little puppy is adorable! I need to find one of those Greek yogurt makers here, I didn’t even know they existed! That would come in handy. A wonderfully simple and refreshing recipe, I feel I will be making this quite often.

  9. lubna says:

    looks very lovely and colourful deeba,will make it soon….badly need to join the bandwagon of dieting divas :-)

  10. The mango ice looks so creamy, I wish we had mango season here but sadly never hot enough! I do buy them when in Sydney though and next time I am there in will have to pop not your shop. Glad you had a good shopping spree while there.

  11. That is such a wonderful recipe! I make mango ice cream often with just mango + full fat milk + sugar (all raw) and it’s delicious. But this one sounds like a better idea!
    Love the photos :)

  12. My oh my that mango frozen yogurt looks simply luscious. And the puppy is darling!

  13. I *love* mango and this mango frozen yoghurt looks amazing.
    Coco is becoming a star! She is so unbelievably cute.
    P.S. I want a dog too!

  14. Yum yum yum… I love mango! What a fun you had there with your family.

  15. Looks so delicious, like summer sunshine. Puppies are so much work, but so adorable you forgive them.

  16. Love this guilt free indulgence!

  17. I’ve made sorbet; just put some plums on the stove to cook down for granita and now you come along with this amazing dish for frozen yogurt. I’ll need to open a frozen treats shop if I keep on like this.

  18. I have to confess… i fell in love with your doggy hehe He’s soo cute! This frozen ice cream sounds perfect for summer! And the frozen mango balls look great!

  19. HI Deeba
    Came across your site, and what an amazing collection of pics and recipes! you inspire me to blog away on my new-ish site. Can I join your MacTweets challenge? always keen on more macaronage trials of flavours so mactweets seems a perfect avenue. Is there any special rules, or can i just link up my post there? thanks. Jehanne.

  20. Really I love mangos Deeba and this look georgeous and delicious!! and your puppy is sooo cute!! LOL

  21. I can’t decide if I’m more envious of the puppy, the thermomix or the yoghurt cheese maker. Just call me a pile of jealousy today.

    This mango ice cream is exquisite!!

  22. The frozen mango yogurt looks delicious and perfect for cooling off.
    Your little doggie is sooo cute! Awwwww……

  23. Oooh, how cute is little Coco! I am smitten. I’m hearing you loud and clear about Victoria’s Basement, luckily I don’t visit very often or I might not have space in my cupboards. Beautiful fro-yo Deeba, the colour is like sunshine.

  24. It was so great to see someone else sing the praises of the yogurt strainer! I have had a Cuisipro strainer for years and use it to make my own Greek yogurt. You can also use it as you did in this recipe to drain the whey out of yogurt. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  25. oh this is lovely, Deeba! I just made some last month :)

  26. This recipe looks gorgeous – I love using frozen yoghurt with the freshest fruit and it feels so healthy! Coco looks absolutely divine…I want to eat her up too!

    Greetings Maam.
    It’s such a mouth-watering yummy recipe that I just can’t wait to make it. but, kind of have a confusion.You kind of used whole milk or double-toned milk for the yogurt. Since, it too can make difference. Kindly clear out my confusion.
    Thank You

  28. Deeba, darling, you are so lucky! When I wanted to buy an ice cream maker – and I even had a gift certificate that covered the cost – husband said no and bought a fish poacher instead! Boo hoo! I am so envious! But don’t get mad at me if I say I don’t like mangoes? (she ducks) – but your photos are gorgeous as always. And looks like a fun trip! (and you know what I think of the cutie dog!)

  29. The frozen yogurt looks great.

  30. lauren says:

    Thank you for the recipe! How cute your puppy is!!! What kind of dog is it?

  31. Simply Devine.

  32. oh my god, Coco is so beautiful! congratulations. as for the mango frozen yoghurt, love love love it, i am missing mango season in Pakistan right now and regretting not being there. x shayma

  33. the huge scoops of mango yogurt look so tempting ! gorgeous images…i’m drooling :-)

  34. Deeba, you were in Australia?!??!!!! Did you only visit Sydney?
