Fruit-Ice -Cream (Low Calory Ice-Cream)


Fruity Ice-Cream with Served with Mango and Strawberry

Ice-Cream brings a big broad smile on the faces of children as well as grownups. I can have as many helping of ice-cream as possible only restraining factor is my level of cholesterol. But rather getting bogged down by such small thing I thought of making fruity ice-cream which will have less quantity of cream and more fruit thus satiating my ice-cream craving as well as providing much required nutrients. The version I make for myself and my husband comes out slightly hard as cream is not added in it. If cream/avocado is added the soft, fruity Ice-cream is made. This Ice-cream is especially good as it has fruit and fruit pulp thus rich in nutrients. Parents of young children should try it as it is one of the best methods apart from Fruity-custard (http://jyotsna-pant.blogspot.com/2013/05/creamy-fruity-custard.html) to make children eat fruits. If Avocado is along with rest of the ingredients then the nutritional vaues as well as the texture and taste increases many folds. 
This Ice-cream being low on calories (25 cal/100gm), fats and sugar. High on dietary fibers, vitamins, micronutrients, is very good for those who cannot partake ice-creams due to high fat, caloris and low fiber contents.

Tips:
  • Any variety of pulpy mangoes can be used.
  • Sieving is must to make sure the pulp is devoid of fibers. Remember fibers and rough texture are unwelcome guests in ice-cream.
  • Corn flour and milk mixture should be stirred vigorously and continuously while cooking to avoid lump formation.
  • Cooked paste of corn flour milk should be thick.
  • The corn flour paste should be mixed with fruit pieces and sugar before making pulp of fruits to make sure even mixing of corn flour paste with fruits. Corn flour paste will act as binder and softener for ice-cream.
Suggested variations:
  • In India during fasting corn flour is not eaten so corn flour paste can be replaced by 100 ml. fresh cream / one cup malai nicely creamed.
  • Pieces of litchi or any other pulpy, non-stony, non-fibrous fruits can be layered while setting the fruit pulp for ice-cream.
  • Corn flour milk mixture can be replaced by avocado cream. Peel and mash one ripe avocado and add that cream to the pulp instead of cornflour milk mixture.
  • Those who do not like the taste and flavor of banana or want to avoid cream (first point in SV) can add avocado which will be a replacement of milk cream as well as banana.
  • While serving top the ice-cream with freshly cut fruit.
