mango coconut ice-cream recipe equal next

Preparation Time: 5 minutes     /     Cooking Time:  10 minutes, plus 3 hours freezing     /     Serves 8-10


  • 400ml coconut milk
  • 300ml thickened cream
  • 500g mango flesh
  • 4 eggs
  • 16 sachets (16g) Equal NEXT


  1. Place the mango, coconut milk, cream, eggs and equal next into a saucepan.
  2. With a hand held blender, blend all ingredients to form a smooth mixture.
  3. Place the saucepan on the stove on a medium heat.
  4. Whisk the mixture for 5-8 minutes until it has slightly thickened and will coat the back of a spoon.
  5. Transfer the mixture to an ice-cream maker and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
    • If you do not have an ice-cream maker transfer the mixture into a plastic container and refrigerate for 1 hour. Then place the container into the freezer. Every hour the ice-cream will need to be whisked with a hand blender and placed back into the freezer. This will need to happen every hour for 4 hours to stop the formation of ice crystals.
  6. Once the ice-cream has finished churning, place it in the freezer for at least two hours.
  7. Enjoy your beautiful home made ice-cream.


Use ripe mangoes as it gives you are more intense flavoured ice-cream. Additionally, serve the ice-cream with some shredded coconut lightly toasted in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes. It gives the ice-cream a great textural element.

1 gram of Equal NEXT is equivalent to 2 grams of white sugar.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
