Mango Float

Servings: 9-12 (depending on what size dish you use)
This dessert doesn't float, but the one eating it surely will! It is delicious and creamy. You have to use sweet ripe mangoes otherwise you can substitute canned peaches. Very easy to make!

1 cup heavy cream, chilled
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk, chilled
1/2 cup mashed ripe mango
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Thin slices of ripe mangoes
Graham Crackers or Slices of Chiffon cake

Garnish: (optional)
Mango slices
Cashew nuts or any chopped nuts you may prefer to use
Maraschino cherries

1. Blend cream and sweetened condensed milk together. Add mashed mango. Add vanilla. Set aside, preferably keeping it chilled until needed. (You may opt to use more sweetened condensed milk for a sweeter taste).

2. In a square 9 x 9-inch or a rectangular 9 x 13-inch Pyrex or any transparent dish, assemble graham crackers and cream mixture by arranging the crackers on the bottom of the dish.

3. Spread one third of the cream mixture, arrange some mango slices, then put another layer of the crackers. Repeat the process, ending with the cream mixture on top.

4. Sprinkle with chopped nuts (optional). Garnish with more slices of mangoes or maraschino cherries for a more festive appeal.

5. Chill before serving.

Makes 9-12 servings (depending on what size baking dish you use).
