Sweet Treat for the Sweet Tooth

Came across this from Wokking Mum and it was a much rave in March (this was tied up with another post and I took it out to stand-alone for easy reference in future). So i made the Mango Ice Cream, chanced upon Popsicle and made them.
Popsicle was yummy, the kids love it but then could have blend the strawberries even smoother. Perhaps the seeds from the strawberries makes it a bit 'seedy'. Mango Ice Cream was yummy to the max. Seriously with all this ice cream recipes lurking around, I wished I have a Ice Cream Maker at home!! Anytime, I can make my own flavour of ice cream based on my mood!!

SStrawberry Popsicle (Recipe from Wokking Mum)
1 mango, skinned and stoned **i replace with 300g strawberry, about 1 box from NTUC)
Sugar to taste
4 cups of water

Blend all the ingredients together.
Pour the mixture into mold and freeze.

Mango Ice Cream (Recipe from Wokking Mum)
2 ripe Mangoes
200ml Whipping Cream
5 tablespoon Icing Sugar or to taste
Stone and skin mangoes.

Puree 350g of the mangoes (about 1 1/2 mangoes) and dice the rest.
Mix or blend the mango puree with sugar and whipping cream.
Add some diced mangoes too if you like to the blended mixture (I did though you can't see it from the photo). It's really nice to be able to bite into bits of mango when you eat the ice cream.
Pour the mixture into a container.
Place a piece of baking paper on it and freeze till frozen.
