To make this ice cream, you have to blend bananas to a point it turns creamy. If the consistency is not smooth enough, you blend again. Taking frozen bananas may prove more helpful in making this ice cream. After you have blended the bananas, you are supposed to chop up your chilled mangoes and blend them with the bananas until you get a fine paste. Pour the batter into a dish, stir some chopped almonds and dig in. That's right, blended bananas act as a substitute for dairy and who needs sugar when you have sweet mangoes, right? This ice cream does not even require freezing. Serve chilled, immediately.
