This easy mango gelato recipe makes a smooth, creamy frozen treat with the sweet flavor of ripe mangoes. Perfect for hot summer days!

Best Season: Spring or summer when mangoes are ripe and juicy.


  • 3 cups fresh mango chunks 🥭

  • 1 cup whole milk 🥛

  • 1 cup heavy cream 🍶

  • 3/4 cup sugar 🍬

  • Pinch of salt 🧂


  • Peel and cube fresh mangoes. You’ll need about 3 cups chopped.
  • In a blender, puree the chopped mangoes until smooth.
  • In a saucepan, combine the mango puree, milk, cream, sugar and salt. Cook over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until sugar dissolves.
  • Refrigerate the mixture for at least 4 hours.
  • Pour the chilled mango mixture into the Ninja Creami and process according to gelato settings.
  • Once done, transfer gelato to a freezer-safe container. Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Scoop into bowls and top with diced mango.
  • Can store leftover gelato in freezer for up to 2 months.
  • Let gelato sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving if too hard.
  • Garnish with mint leaves or toasted coconut for extra flavor.


  • This recipe works well with frozen mango chunks if fresh are not available. Just thaw first before blending.

  • For a creamier texture, substitute full-fat coconut milk for the dairy.

  • Infuse the milk with a vanilla bean or other aromatics like lemongrass or ginger for extra flavor depth.

  • Make it kid-friendly by doubling the mango amount for a more fruity, less creamy gelato.

  • For a vegan version, use coconut creamer or oat milk instead of heavy cream.

  • Top with toasted shredded coconut or crushed graham crackers for added crunch.

  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves or a lime wedge to brighten the flavors.

  • Freeze the gelato in popsicle molds for a tropical fruity ice pop.

  • Substitute other fruits like pineapple, banana or strawberries for variations.

  • Store covered in freezer up to 2-3 months for best quality and texture.
