“Ice cream is happiness condensed.”

Peach Mango Low Fat Ice Cream… nothing screams more comfort in summer than frozen fruit dessert! I do loads of frozen yogurt every summer. The last week I looked at my fridge full of mangoes and peaches and just knew an ice cream was in the future. There are days when fro yo will satisfy the craving, and then there are days when I want to ‘up the luxury‘. Just a teeny bit. A little cream can do no harm!It was one of those days where a creamy ice cream craving was developing. It began with the trappings of a fro yo, and ended up being a low-fat ice cream. This was such fun to make and absolutely delicious. Maybe next time, we’ll see a nice, rich, full fat ice cream. Maybe!
With stone fruit a plenty this summer, now the monsoon showers are literally drowning North India. As we wade through the streets, I think we’re looking at the last peaches and plums of the season. Cherries have been bid adieu, and peaches look set to follow! Plums appear to be the hardiest of the lot. Mangoes, of course, will be here for a while longer, another month at least. North India has seen a really good stone fruit crop this year. The Peach Mango Low Fat Ice Cream is a wonderful and delicious way to celebrate it. Creamy, fruity, slight undertones of almond, it turned out bowl licking good. I froze some in a bowl, and piped the rest into kulfi / popsicle molds. I loved how sweetly the popsicles turned out. So easy to serve this way, and such a treat to see the kids greedily lick the sticks even when there was nothing left on them! Coco got lucky with a few licks too!It’s been a satisfying season and I really love how versatile stone fruit are. We’re looking at the fag-end of the season, so I intend to pack in as much as possible … into our tummies, and hopefully onto the blog too!
