How to Prepare Mango Frost in 5 Simple Steps

Updated on May 23, 2013

The Frozen Mango Frost

The Origins of Mango Frost

Christmas Eve of 1991 (still unmarried that time) when I had my first bite of this refrigerator cake made by my older sister. When I asked for the recipe which she passed on to me by handwriting, the ingredients were lavish and the procedures were lengthy so much so that I could hardly remember now what to use and how to do it by the book. However, my first attempt using the original recipe was so memorable. I brought it to a simple gathering where people were enthused and agog to judge how does it taste.

SUPERB! EXTRAORDINARY! SUMPTUOUS! So they said.

Since then, I made it a tradition to prepare mango frost as dessert in family reunions or simple gatherings and became my "signature dish". After some time, as prices go higher and more products become available for substitutes, I eliminated some items and procedures to simplify preparation and lessen cost without compromising the quality. Finally, I derived at 5 simple steps that even my nine-year old son can prepare it with just a little help from me.

Total amount I spent is US$ 4.00 (Php 165.00) which serves 10 to 15 persons. Try it!

Getting ready

Mango Frost

  • 220 grams Graham Crackers
  • 2 bricks All Purpose Cream, chilled, 250 ml each
  • 1 brick Condensed Milk, 250 ml
  • 3-4 whole Ripe Mango, washed

Procedures

  1. Line up a single layer of crackers at the base of a square or rectangular dishware. (Glass or ceramics are better.)
  2. Mix cream and milk in a blender for 30 seconds. This process allows the cream to rise.
  3. Pour enough mixture to cover crackers.
  4. Repeat procedures 1-3 until all crackers and cream mixture are used up.
  5. Slice both sides of the mangoes and scrape meat using a tablespoon. Arrange on top layer of cream mixture. Cover and freeze for six hours or overnight.

The finished product to be frozen

After 12 hours in the freezer, I took it out and let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes

How to appease your cravings after your dessert is frozen

Before we indulge in the awesome goodness of our mango frost, we take it out of the freezer at least 15 minutes to allow the crackers soften a little and blend with the cream mixture that makes it taste like cake frosted with ice cream. You'll see your kids' faces beaming with delight as they patiently wait for a slice. And after taking a bite, they would stare at you to insinuate: could we have one more? So what's intended to last three days would be consumed in one day only.

We also serve mango frost on potluck parties where everybody would line-up to have their fair share. As the bestseller among all dishes served, you'll be more than happy and excited as to when the next potluck party will be!

Just follow the simple steps and eat to your heart's content.

For variation, you may replace mango with mini chocolate cookies, chocolate droplets and sprinkles. It becomes frosted cookies and cream. Kids love this more.

Or aside from mango, you may add toppings like nips and sprinkles, as shown below.
