Mango Biscuit Float Dessert

Mango Biscuit Float Dessert

Mango season is back and the recipes with mangoes are on full swing in social medias and blogs!So here i’m with my favorite mango dessert .This is one pudding that wipes in no time.The two favorite desserts of my family is this one and do you remember my Nutty Parfait! Creamy, deliciousness !!

The layer of delicious buttery mangoey pulp as base,topped with biscuits and a rich vanilla cream on top followed by caramelized nuts.This is as simple as 1,2,3 and the taste is out of the world.If you are a mango lover you will fall in love with this pudding on a single bite.As you can see the name it’s a floating pudding,will not set it’s liquidy but believe me it’s worth trying!

This pudding was introduced to us by Shabnam my aunt(shabu ammayi) who is a master chef . She used to bring a big bowl of this pudding if there is any potluck party and we wipe it off every single bit.The recipe shared to me by my cousin Raisa till then it’s our favorite. Make it your favorite too,If mango is not in season you can make it with pineapple too,But if you are making with pineapple you have to cook it with butter and sugar.

It’s a real creamy indulgence with mango,biscuits and a crunch from nuts.There is one Philippine dessert similar to this called mango float dessert.In that they are using vanilla sponge cakes and for the crunch Amaretti cookies instead of caramelized nuts.Hope you guys will like it.If you don’t want it so liquidy try to set in a large pudding bowl or in individual short glasses.So that cream will spread widely and the some of the liquids are soaked by biscuits.

Note:If you are setting it in a pudding bowl use a large square dish and pour it gently over the top.
Add more biscuits by inserting it inside the cream.
In large dish i used to add everything as a single layer.(like first mango,then biscuits and then pour cream.Then just insert some more biscuits to the cream )If you want you can repeat the layers.

If your mango is sour add sugar accordingly.
