Before we go on, I would like to wish everyone a Happy New Year!

I know it is a bit late and I would also like to apologize for not posting anything for so long but there is a reason for that…I was in the Philippines since the first week of December to attend our dear youngest sister, Cherry, and Jon’s wedding and only came back to Germany last Thursday.

I did make a line up of posts for December before I left. I thought I could make some for January while in the Philippines, but I guess, all the ruckus from the wedding prep to the wedding itself and then Christmas and New Year made it all but impossible for me to work.    Mango float could be the easiest delicious no-bake dessert you will ever make. Only needs 4 ingredients too! Try it now! |

But now I am back with this yummy and super easy recipe for Mango Float I made for New Year’s eve as requested by my soon-to-be brother in law, King! (Yep, another reason to come back home this year).  

I brought some mangoes (Kalabaw and Piko) from the Philippines (along with plantain bananas) to Germany just so I can write a post about it.

Real good mangoes like the Philippine mangoes are hard, if not impossible, to find here in Germany so they were on my priority list to bring.  And every grams and space of it in my luggage was worth it!

  • Chill the all-purpose cream in the freezer for 20-30 minutes or in the fridge overnight.
  • (If you like it lighter and fluffier, whip the all-purpose cream with a hand mixer until it doubles in volume.)
  • In a bowl, slowly fold the all-purpose cream with the sweetened condensed milk until well mixed.
  • Line the bottom of a rectangular or square (8x8 or 6x6) glass dish (or something similar) with a layer Graham crackers then pour and spread 1/3 or 1/4 of the cream mixture on top of the crackers and then top with mango slices.
  • Repeat this process until 3 to 4 layers are formed, ending with the cream and mango cubes on top.
  • Chill for at least 3-5 hours to set completely before serving. You know it is ready when the Graham becomes soft and fluffy and no longer dry.


If you have some graham crackers left, crushed it finely and dust it on top before adding the final mango cubes.
I used Pico mango, which for me is usually sweeter but champagne mango (a.k.a. Manila Mango or Kalabaw) would also be a great choice.
I used a peeler to slice the mango to have a uniform thickness.
You might want to adjust the measurement for the sweetened condensed milk, remember that the ripe mango will also add sweetness to the cake.

  1. hi Bebs are you whipping the cream on this recipe as recommended or only optional. whipping it by hand mixer for how many minutes?

    1. Hi Ace, if you are using whipping cream then it has to be whipped. In the Philippines, we have the all-purpose cream that can be chilled and ready to go..

  2. Hi, bebs! Is it necessary to whip the all purpose cream with a hand mixer? I don’t have one 🙁 also having a hard time layering ‘coz nagdidikit dikit yung graham crackers. At first I thought it was because of the mixture, but I already added cream so the ratio is 1:2. And still, nagdidikit dikit pa rin yung biscuits while floating T.T help!

    1. Hi Dimple, as I mentioned in the post, whipping is optional if you are using all-purpose cream for a fluffier and lighter texture. The cream should be chilled before using so it could set or else it will be too liquid which I think is the reason why you are having a difficult time layering them. The mixture is too liquid and will not hold the crackers in place.

  3. Very good very simple very quick .
    I try first in round bowl it doesn’t make good result. Rectangular of square container is necessary. Don’t add too much cream on the biscuit, just cover them with a layer is enough. Result is great and yummy. I use 1/2 can of the little one 180ml

  4. Hi Bebs! I’ve been wanting to make Mango Float here in Germany but couldn’t find Graham Crackers, Nestle or All-Purpose Cream just like the ones we use in the Philippines. It also goes to say that the Mangoes that are available here in Germany are not so good as the ones we have back home. Can you please tell me some alternatives for those ingredients?
    Thank you very much!

    1. Hi Hanna, you can use Butterkekse for Graham crackers. Schlagsahne, when whipped, should also work ( I actually like it better). As for the mangoes, look for the frozen ones in the groceries (Kaufland, Edeka), they are not like ours but better than the ones you buy fresh in Germany.

  5. Hmm how much it cost for 1 whole tray? And how can I know the quantity of the ingredients to buy ?? 🙁 im sorry ita my first time making mango float 🙂 from php here 🙂

  6. Hi!! Where can I buy graham crackers here in germany? I can‘t imagine using any substitute for grahams. I miss mango float so much. I‘m terribly craving them!! Btw, I live in Dersum, it‘s such a small town. But when I go to Berlin or any other bigger city, it’ll be my goal to get one.

    1. Hi Nicolette, I was not able to find Graham crackers in Germany so I used to bring some packs whenever I go to the Philippines. But, you can try Butterkekse. It is the closest thing I can find as a substitute.

  7. When you say 1 pack of graham crackers, do you mean 1 bag of three or 1 whole box (3 bags /box)? Would like to suggest for you to use weights for a clearer description, thus leaving no chance for the readers for any misinterpretation. Love your recipes! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Lazaro, sorry if you got confused. I used about 12 pieces of graham crackers for this one. I didn’t put the exact amount because it might need more or less depending on the container you use.

  8. Philippine mangoes are indeed the best. It’s nice you can bring some with you to Germany. It’s not allowed to bring in fresh fruits into New Zealand and I haven’t seen any PH mangoes here.

    1. How bad that you cannot bring in mangoes or any fresh fruits in NZ. I feel for you and I wish some importers would think of importing them there and here too! PH Mangoes are the best!
