Mango Lassi Tart Frozen Yogurt & Mango Coconut Ice Cream (dairy free)

Not a great photo...it was melting too quickly! 
Buying mangoes doesn't exactly support the local food system (something I like to do), but when you have a food budget like mine and see 9 mangoes for something like $5 at Costco...you've got to make some mango ice cream!  [Note: mangoes are also on the Environmental Working Group's Clean 15 list-- meaning that they had a low amount of pesticide residue in the fruit when measured--also something I care about.]

Mango Lassi Tart FrozenYogurt
Tart fro-yo was all over the place in southern California and I loved it. I can't find it up here in the hills... A mango lassi is an Indian 'smoothie' made with traditional yogurt cultures. For the frozen yogurt, I looked up how to make a mango lassi and then modified.
makes 1 1/2 quarts:
  • 2-3 mangoes
  • lassi (from trader joes in dairy section) or kefir or plain yogurt (use enough to fill up blender)
  •  1 1/2 teaspoons (approx.) cardamom
  • pinch or two of salt
  • Raw honey or other sweetener to taste
Put it all in the blender-- taste to adjust amounts. Freeze it in an ice cream maker.

Mango-Coconut Ice Cream (dairy free)
  • 2 mangoes
  • Coconut milk (use enough to fill up blender)
  • Juice of a couple of limes
  • Raw honey to taste
  • a pinch of salt
Throw it all in the blender--taste to adjust amounts. Freeze it in the ice cream maker.
