I made this Peach Mango Cinnamon Ice Cream, though it’s dairy free (made with coconut milk) and instead of sugar I used raw honey. It might not be all that pretty, but it sure is tasty! I have made peach mango “ice cream” before, but this one is a little different.
I had recently bought some of those fruit pouches, that are perfect for kids lunch boxes. My boys really like them. Apparently their favorite is the plain applesauce or applesauce with cinnamon. But I’ve got some of the other flavors here and there to see what else they might like.
Apparently these Fruit and Veggie ones from Del Monte are not a favorite. The boys weren’t eating them. I kept seeing them in the pantry. They are all real fruit with juice and veggies added. Peach mango, hmmm? I checked to see what veggies were in them and it’s just a little pumpkin and carrot juice. Ding! These needed to be put to use. This dairy free ice cream was created using seven pouches. Here’s the recipe. Get a box of them and try it out.
Peach Mango Cinnamon Ice Cream, Dairy Free and Refined Sugar Free, by Katrina, Baking and Boys!
7 Del Monte Peach Mango Fruit + Veggie Squeezers (1 Box is 8 pouches, you could use all 8)
1/4 cup raw honey
1 can lite coconut milk (or regular is fine, I just had some lite on hand)
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2-1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (to taste—I added 1/2 teaspoon, but ended up putting in a bit more)
couple pinches of fresh nutmeg
Put all the fruit and veggie mixture from each pouch in a large bowl. Add the honey and whisk to combine. Whisk in the coconut milk, then add the almond extract, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg and whisk until all combined. Pour the mixture into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker and church according to manufacturer instructions, about 20 minutes. Serve ice cream soft serve immediately or put in an airtight container in the freezer. To serve frozen ice cream, let sit on the counter for 15 minutes for easier scooping.
Peach is definitely the dominant flavor in these pouches and in the ice cream. The cinnamon is a perfect autumn addition. You’ll love it!
