No Sugar Coconut and Mango Icecream


The taste of this light is light and creamy, which makes it a perfect taste of Summer. Indeed use ripe mangos for the juicy and syrupy texture that wonderfully balances out the slight crunchiness of the coconut pieces. This recipe uses dates instead of powdered sugar, making it a great healthy dessert option.

Good for Vata and Pitta Dosha.
