Craving

Have you ever craved for something you don´t know yet? Something sweet, cold and fluffy that you can feel inside your mouth? You don´t know what it is, but it´s what you would like to have at the moment.

It was a very hot sunny afternoon with a temperature of 31° C when I was in my home country. I was tired and exhausted after writing some articles for hubpages which I was planning to publish after editing them. I got up from my chair and looked inside the kitchen cupboard for something edible to eat. I´m not fond of having a snack, but at that time I craved for something to ease myself from the hotness of the weather. Something cold and delicious and I did not know what it was, yet.

There were not much something to eat for a snack inside the kitchen cupboard besides a pack of Graham crackers, a can of strawberry pie filling and a can of condensed milk. It´s not common to store a lot of food at home in the Philippines like we do in Germany as we buy food fresh from the market. There´s always somebody who go to the market for me when I don´t like to do it myself.

The 3 items from the kitchen cupboard was not enough to make anything I have done before, so I inspected the refrigerator. Luckily, I found ripe mangoes and a box of all purpose cream. Being hungry made my brain cells working too much to find something yummy. I was thinking about making Tiramisu but with mangoes and strawberry pie filling? No way!

Here´s the outcome of my craving. Mango Strawberry Cream Dessert. I hope you will like it.

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: 6-8 persons

Ingredients

  • 3 or 5 pieces mangoes, peeled and cut lengthwise
  • 1 can strawberry pie fillings or fresh strawberries
  • 1 can condensed milk, big and chilled
  • 1 pack 200 gram Graham Crackers
  • 1 pack all purpose cream, chilled

Procedure

  1. Wash and peel the mangoes. Cut in both sides. Set the seeds aside as you might want to eat the fruit meat out of the seeds. Slice the mangoes into length sizes.
  2. Open the can of strawberry pie fillings or use washed fresh strawberries when they are in season.
  3. Put together the chilled all purpose cream and the chilled condenced milk in a bowl and mix well.
  4. Make the first layer by lining the Graham Crackers at the bottom of a big flat baking form, a pyrex bowl or a tupperware. Fill in the cream and condensed milk mixture on top just to cover the crackers. Add the strawberry pie fillings. Then cover them with the Graham Crackers.
  5. For the second layer, add the cream mixture just to cover the strawberry pie fillings and the crackers. Add the mango slices. Then cover them with the crackers. Add the cream mixture.
  6. Decorate the Mango Strawberry Cream Dessert with the remaining mangoes sliced into cubes. If there are still strawberry pie fillings or you are using fresh strawberries, add them to the decoration. Add some Graham Crackers crumbs (make the crumbs from the remaining crackers) as well.
  7. Refrigerate for at least one hour. Enjoy!

Useful Tips:

  1. Use strawberry pie filling only when you have no other choice. Fresh strawberries are still the best when it comes to making this dessert.
  2. You can use any sizes of baking form or pyrex bowl. When I made this dessert I used another form like the glass bowl above besides the tupperware, as there was still mango strawberry pie cream left.
  3. You can use canned ripe mangoes if you can´t find a fresh one.
  4. It´s better to have more mango fruits and strawberries left than having less fruits at all.
  5. You can use natural yogurt instead of condensed milk.
  6. Cover the bowl when chilling this dessert in the refrigerator.


I hope you like this dessert recipe and please let me know how´d you like it by giving a comment. Thanks for stopping by.

Looks quite tasty. Yum!

I've made something like this lots of time: mango float, or sometimes cream with canned fruit cocktail. We don't have strawberry where I am. =(

Yep, it´s tasty diyomarpandan. I have not made mango float yet, but I have tasted it in a party. I avoid using canned fruits when I´m in our home country as we have a lot of fresh Asian fruits like mangoes. You can use canned strawberries or strawberry pie fillings when making this dessert. You can buy these in Gaisano supermarket. Thanks for your comment and have a great week.

Thelma you are so lucky to have the opportunity to visit Philippines every year I won't mind staying in another country if I will be given the same choice as yours... I will really try this one....... I have combined all purpose cream and condense milk before and it tasted so good especially when chilled I also used them as toppings for gelatine.
