Mango delight is one of those recipes that I will whip up when im short on time and don't have the time to make an elaborate dessert. It's easy, simple and tastes great. I love desserts that showcase natural fruit and their flavour. The summer means finding desserts that mean I don't have to use the oven, or stand in the kitchen for hours making crazy desserts. It's refreshing flavour will have your family coming back for seconds and thirds. Just like mine.
Preparation Time 10 minutes
10 rich tea biscuits
1 cup heavy cream
2 mangoes- ripe but firm
3 tablespoons sugar
Peel the mangoes. Chop one of the mangoes and puree the other. Put them in separate bowls and refrigerate both.
Before starting the recipe, freeze a glass bowl and electric beater sticks for half an hour. This will help while beating cream in the summer.
Beat the cream for 2-3 minutes until it begins to thicken. Add the sugar and beat until soft peaks. Do not beat until stiff peaks, because the cream will curdle when we add the mango puree and beat it again. Stop at soft peaks.
Take out 1 tablespoon of the whipped cream and set it aside. We need it for the topping.
Add the mango puree to the whipped cream, reserving 3 tablespoons of the mango puree for the topping too.
Beat this until stiff peaks. Set it aside.
Begin layering the dessert in a pyrex dish. Begin by placing 5 broken tea biscuits in the dish. Do not make it into crumbs though.
Top with half the chopped mangoes, then half the mango cream. Spread the mango cream over the top to cover the biscuits and cream.
Then repeat the process with the rest of the biscuits, mangoes and end with the cream. Use a spatula to spread the cream very carefully over the top. Be careful not to push the mangoes or cream around.
Combine the mango puree and the cream that we set to the side. Pour that into a piping bag and pipe straight lines over the top layer of the Cream. Use a cocktail stick to create a feathered effect over the dessert.
Freeze for 1 hour before serving. You could also refrigerate it if you have time.
