Slice the mangos open and scoop out all of the fruit. Place the fruit in a blender. Add the sugar and blend for 1 minute (or until the sugar has dissolved and you are left with a mango puree). Add the coconut milk and lemon juice. Briefly blend to combine (a few seconds). Pour the mango puree into a bowl or container while you continue to use the blender. Scrape the sides and bottom to remove as much of the puree as possible. Now pour the whipping cream into the blender. Blend until the cream stiffens. Add the mango puree to the whipped cream and blend 5-10 seconds to get a good mango-cream consistency. Pour into a container and place in the freezer. Freeze for 6 to 8 hours.
