Creating the Perfect Mango Cheese Ice Candy

When making Mango Cheese Ice Candy, it’s essential to use ripe, juicy yellow mangoes. The sweetness can be adjusted to your personal preference. For a non-dairy alternative, you can substitute canned coconut milk and coconut condensed milk. Cornstarch or Cassava Flour is used as a stabilizer to create a custard-like base and achieve a soft, creamy texture in the ice candy.
