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.

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!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Chill the all-purpose cream in the freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  2. (If you like it lighter and fluffier, whip the all-purpose cream with a hand mixer until it doubles in volume.)

  3. In a bowl, slowly fold the all-purpose cream with the sweetened condensed milk until well mixed.
  4. 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.
  5. Repeat this process until 3 to 4 layers are formed, ending with the cream and mango cubes on top.
  6. 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.

Recipe Notes

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. 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.

  2. 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!
