Lucy's Story

This is a great dessert for summer days. Mangoes are one of the most delicious fruits in the world. The best are grown in an island in the Philippines called Guimaras. It is the famous Mango Capital of the world.


200 g
graham crackers
10 1/2 oz
all-purpose cream
3 large
ripe mangoes
1 can(s)
condensed milk
1 c
crushed graham crackers

Directions Step-By-Step

Sliced mangoes into thin wedges
Combine condensed milk and all purpose cream. Do not beat. Just mix well.
Place graham crackers on square glass pan or container.
Layer mangoes on top of graham crackers. Make sure crackers are covered well with mangoes.
Spread cream mixture over the mangoes.
Repeat by putting layers of graham, mangoes and cream until you've used it all. Top off with crushed graham crackers.
Refrigerate to chill overnight. Mango float tastes more delicious when chilled well.
Mangoes can be substituted with canned peaches or fruit cocktail. But I prefer fresh mangoes. Much more delicious and refreshing. Great dessert summer days! Enjoy!
