Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Cook time: 8 hours
Ready in: 8 hours 30 min
Yields: Serves 4-6 people

Ingredients

  • 1 can (14 oz) Condensed milk
  • 3 Large pieces Ripe mangoes, cut into thin pieces
  • 2 packs (250 ml) All-purpose cream
  • 1 pack (200 grams) Graham cracker
  1. Combine the condensed milk and the all-purpose cream in a bowl and make sure to mix it well. You don't have the beat the mixture, just mix it well until the color and texture is even.
  2. Prepare the mangoes next. You wash first the mangoes properly with water before peeling them, just to avoid contamination. Peel them and cut them into flat and thin pieces. You can set a side a few pieces of mangoes to be used as a design for your masterpiece.
  3. You need to use a square or rectangular plastic or glass container. Make sure that the container is completely dry. Using a square/rectangle container, arrange the graham crackers at the bottom (this serves as the first layer). Just make sure that the bottom of the container is evenly covered with graham crackers because it will serve as a base.
  4. After the first layer of graham crackers are arranged properly, put the mangoes on top of it. Just make sure to cover the crackers with mangoes evenly. It all depends on you on how much mango pieces that you will use, the more mangoes the yummier it gets but just make sure that they are evenly spread out.
  5. After the mangoes are arranged, spread the condensed milk and all-purpose cream mixture over the mangoes. Just spread it out evenly until the whole space is covered with the mixture.
  6. And then repeat the process by putting the crackers on top, and then the mangoes, and then the mixture. Easy right?
  7. You're almost done! After you fill the container, just finish it by sprinkling crushed graham cracker on top.
  8. Place the finished product in the fridge overnight.

How To Pick The Perfect Mango

Picking the perfect ripe mango for this delicious no-bake dessert recipe is very crucial. The quality of the mango is the make or break of this recipe. You should make sure not to use an overly ripe nor slightly ripe mango. Overly ripe mangoes might cause stomach problems, while the slightly ripe mangoes will taste sour, which is a no no.

You need to use your 3 senses in order to get the perfect mango, and these are your sense of touch, sight and smell. Here are a few tips that you can follow in choosing the perfect mango for your dessert.

1. Sense of touch - the feel of the mango should be slight soft. If you push the fruit using your thumb, it should not sink otherwise it's already overripe.

2. Sense of sight - visually, the mango should be rounded and full. The black or brown spots on the skin is just normal. Wrinkled outer skin of the mango is a sign that it's already overripe. The most common mango variant is yellow, so if you'll look at it, a ripe mango should be bright yellow.

3. Sense of smell - try to smell the mango from the stem. It should smell sweet rather than sour or alcohol odor.
