Mango Basil Freeze
Sweet mango pairs with an herbaceous finish in this fruity treat.
- 1½ cup (360 ml) almond yogurt, or yogurt of choice
- 9 (7 g) fresh basil leaves
- 3 (30 g) dates, pitted, or 1.5 Tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon lime zest
- 1½ pound (680 g) frozen mango chunks
- Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
- Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Blend for 50 seconds, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades.
- In about 30-60 seconds, the sound of the motor will change and four mounds should form. Stop the machine. Do not over mix or melting will occur. Serve immediately.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scottster from Mango with some tango I modified this recipe with a tasty outcome. I added a frozen banana, 1/8 cup of 0 CAL, Kirkland Monkfruit sweetener, and a shot of Kirkland dark spiced rum ( the tango). I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried basil which still gave a hint of basil flavor. I used the frozen dessert setting and stopped the machine 3-4 seconds after the mounds formed. The consistency was perfect and lasted awhile, not having the instant melt of some of the other Vmix frozen dessert recipes I have tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hdang from Love it We just made this as our first ice cream. It did not have the same form/shape as in the picture but it tastes good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanee from Use FRESH in season frozen fruits I find the frozen fruit from the grocery lacks in flavor and natural sweetness. I'm using fresh fruit in season (mangos especially) really pushes this up the bar. Works so well with frozen fresh farm peaches or in season fresh frozen mango.
