Mango Float

4.8(126)

This Filipino icebox dessert consists of layers of graham crackers, sweetened whipped cream, and ripe mango. Be sure to chill everything, especially the cream, condensed milk, glass dish, mixing bowl, and beaters for the mixer. This will help the cream whip more quickly and everything come together well during assembly. Thaw the float before serving, or serve slightly frozen. Enjoy with your favorite dessert wine, cocktail, coffee or tea!

How to Make It

1. Step
Peel the mangoes and cut the lobes off as close to the pit as possible. Thinly slice half of the mango lobes into ¹⁄₁₆-inch (15 mm)-thick slices, keeping the slices intact and transferring to a tray or plate. Cover and refrigerate until ready to assemble. Cut the remaining mango into ½-inch (1.24 cm) cubes. Transfer to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate until ready to assemble.
2. Step
Add 2 cups of cream to a chilled large bowl and use an electric hand mixer to beat on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form, 3–5 minutes. Add the remaining 2 cups of cream and beat again until stiff peaks form, 3–5 minutes more.
3. Step
Add half of the condensed milk and beat until fully incorporated. Add the remaining condensed milk, vanilla, and salt and beat until fully incorporated and stiff peaks form, 4–7 minutes. Give the mixture a final stir with a rubber spatula.
4. Step
Line a chilled 7 x 11 (17 x 27 cm) -inch glass dish with parchment paper, leaving overhang on all sides.
5. Step
Cover the bottom of the dish with a single layer of graham crackers, breaking to fill in any gaps as necessary. Spread 2–3 cups (480-720 ml) of the whipped cream mixture evenly over the graham crackers, all the way to the edges and corners of the dish. Top with ½ of the diced mango. Repeat to make another layer. For the final layer, arrange the graham crackers over the diced mango and top with 2–3 cups of whipped cream. Arrange the thinly sliced mango decoratively on top. Sprinkle crushed graham crackers around the edge of the float.
6. Step
Cover the mango float in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4–6 hours, until the cream sets and the graham crackers soften and absorb some moisture. Transfer the float to the freezer for 8 hours, or overnight.
7. Step
Remove the float from the freezer and use the parchment paper to lift out of the dish. Let thaw for 5–10 minutes before slicing.
8. Step
Serve with your favorite dessert wine, cocktail, coffee, or tea.
9. Step
Enjoy!
