Gelato has been on my to-make list ever since I bought my ice cream maker which was some 3 years ago. So when I saw the recipe for mango gelato in King Arthur flour’s newsletter, I knew it was time to make this icy, creamy treat.
Gelato is the Italian word for Ice cream. I searched online for the differenc between ice cream and gelato, there is a ton of information, but I understood was that gelato has less air incorporated because it is churned much slower. Also gelato uses more milk than cream, so it has less fat than ice cream. Read this post from Serious eats to get a better understanding of the differences.
We bought a crate of ripe mangoes from the Indian store and I used a couple to make this. If you don’t have fresh mangoes, then feel free to use frozen mango chunks.
