Green Mango Ice Cream (5 cups)

4 Carrington Mango Herbal Tea Bags
2/3 cup fresh, cold water
4 green mangoes (NOT ripe - hard, very firm)

In a large saucepan, bring water to a rapid boil; remove from heat. Immediately add tea bags. Steep for 5 minutes; remove tea bags. Peel the mangoes. Cut the flesh away from the seeds; dice fruit; add to saucepan. Sprinkle sugar over fruit. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fruit is soft. Taste; add more sugar, if necessary. Remove from heat. Mash fruit with a fork until a course puree is obtained; drain any excess liquid off. Allow to cool. Whip heavy cream and dry milk in a bowl until stiff peaks form. Gently stir mango puree into the whipped cream. Spoon into a plastic container and freeze. Tropical and tantalizing!
