Frozen Mango Cream

Notes: Look for canned Alphonso mango pulp in Indian markets, valued for its overtones of rose, pineapple, and nectarine. Or purée 3 cans (about 1 lb. each) mango, drained, or about 3 1/2 pounds pitted, peeled, diced fresh ripe mangoes. If using fresh mangoes, add more sugar to taste. In India, servings are often adorned with edible gold or silver leaf.
