Mango Float

Happy Friday, dear readers.

It is the end of September and what are you planning for this weekend?

Mrs D went to a lady’s gathering this week and one of the ladies brought a nice Mango Float for us to share.

‘This dessert doesn’t float, but the one eating it surely will!

It is delicious and creamy.’

Not a bad feedback, right? So this weekend, why not give this recipe a try and have some quality dessert time?

This mango float is soft and tasty, sweet but not greasy. It is a perfect dessert for Jakarta. Mangoes are so easy to find in Jakarta. There are actually different kinds of mangoes. People use them in cooking as well (as in dishes).

  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled (double cream is Ok)
  • 2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk, chilled
  • 1/2 cup mashed ripe mango
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Thin sliced of ripe mangoes
  • Graham Crackers or Slices of Chiffon cake (Any cracker will do)
  • Chopped nuts or Maraschino cherries (Optional)

Now the best part. It is super easy to make. No heat, no bake. It is a delight making this Mango Float:

  1. Blend cream and sweetened condensed milk together. Add mashed mango. Add vanilla.
  2. Set aside, preferably keeping it chilled until needed.
  3. Assemble in a rectangular dish (even a lunch box will do) graham crackers and cream mixture by arranging the crackers on the bottom of the dish.
  4. Spread 1/3 of the cream mixture, arrange some mango slices, then put another layer of the crackers.
  5. Repeat the process, ending with the cream mixture on top.
  6. (Optional) Spread chopped nuts.
  7. Garnish with more slices of mangoes or maraschino cherries for a more festive appeal. (We use smashed nuts )
  8. Put inside the friger for two hours and it’s ready to eat.

Simply cut it into a few blocks and share with you family and friends.

Selamat makan. Enjoy.

Happy Friday and see you all in October.
