Mango Float in a Jar

This particular dessert was a hit on my birthday celebration at home. It was one of the dishes that disappeared almost instantly as it hits the buffet table. I loved it so much , I made again last week, this time for some girlfriends . Just as I expected, they too , have been bugging me for the recipe since then. Fortunately  making this is quick and easy . I wish all desserts are like this.

This recipe makes about 6 dessert jars. You can use empty marmalade jars as well. If you don't have any of those available, a big glass bowl will do.

You need:

1 big or 2 medium ripe mangoes.
1 cup mango pulp
lady finger biscuits
200 ml cream
2 tbsp. vanilla sugar
250 g mascarpone cream  ( alternative : Quark or cream cheese)

Here's how to do it:

Peel mangoes and dice. Mix together with mango pulp . Cover  and refrigerate.

Whip cream and vanilla sugar together until soft peak forms. Beat in mascarpone or quark/cream cheese until  mass  holds its shape.

Pipe whipped cream and mascarpose mixture into the jar or dessert glass.

Carefully arrange  lady finger biscuits over it. Break it into smaller pieces if needed.

 Spoon diced mango mixture on top. Repeat the layers until all ingredients are used up.

It will end looking quite pretty like this!

And just as beautiful on a dessert bowl. Your choice!
