Mango Float

Ever since “Mango Mania” has made Philippine mangoes more affordable in Korea, I make it a point to order a box especially when they have specials. I’ve tried other “brands” of Philippine mangoes here but the only ones I ever liked are from “I Love Mango” and “Mango Mania”. I post on my FB page whenever “Mango Mania” has a sale ;p

My son loves Philippine mangoes and I enjoy making “Mango Float” for my Korean family and friends. It’s so easy to make using ingredients available in Korean supermarkets.

We need:
– “Diget” digestive biscuits
– Maeil whipping cream
– condensed milk or 연유
– two small mangoes from Mango Mania

Diget - whipping cream - condensed milk
Diget – whipping cream – condensed milk

I prefer “Diget” biscuits to graham crackers… it just tastes better ;p

First, mix the cream and the condensed milk. The ratio I use is 2:1, e.g. a cup of cream plus half a cup of condensed milk. I sometimes add mango juice I squeezed from the seed for a stronger mango taste ;p

Next, line the biscuits on the bottom of your container. Here I use the “brownie” mold that I got for free.

Next, spoon some cream-milk mixture. Thinly slice the mangoes and layer on the cream.

Repeat the process of biscuit, cream-milk mixture and mangoes.

With the mold that I use, I can layer three biscuits. The top is always with mangoes. Optionally, you could crumble a biscuit and sprinkle on top.

Let the “mango float” set for ten minutes before covering with a foil and freeze!

And here's the finished product...

About thirty minutes before serving, take it out from the freezer so it will be easier to slice.
