4-Ingredient Mango Ice Cream With Black Sesame Syrup [Vegan]






  • 1 mango
  • 1 cup black sesame seeds
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  1. Peel and cut 1 ripe mango into chunks, lay pieces over a plate lined with parchment paper. Put in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
  2. Put 1 cup of black sesame seeds in a pan, bring to medium heat, and toast them until they start to pop.
  3. In a pot, combine 1 cup of water with the black sesame seeds. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Strain liquid from sesame seeds using a cheese cloth or with a mesh strainer, squeezing out as much liquid as you can. Reserve sesame seeds for later use.
  5. Return liquid to pot, add 1/2 cup of sugar and bring to medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat and let cool.
  6. Purée the frozen mango using an immersion blender, separate in 2 bowls, and serve with 2 tablespoons of black sesame syrup and some black sesame seeds reserved from before.
