Easy Way to Make Melai 's New Favorite - Mango Float

For Melai who is a kababayan from Gensan and the recently declared Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother has her new favorite. That is, MANGO FLOAT, not biko anymore, LOL. See the fresh full story at Yahoo. But we're not talking about Melai here. Let's talk about how to make her and my kids' favorite, this delectable dessert  especially now that it's summer time and it's mango season. Actually, this is one of the easiest to prepare desserts. Proportion may vary according to the maker's taste. But for me, here are the ingredients:
2 kgs of ripe mango
2 cans of condensed milk
1 pack of cream (Nestle, Alaska or as you wish)
1 pack of Graham crackers (uncrushed for me)
cashew nuts and raisins for toppings (or anything as you desire)

 On my SIL's birthday on EDSA Rev (Feb25), I used 2kgs of mango. Of course, ripe and good quality. Here's the easy step-by-step procedure:
Peel the mango and slice it into thin strips.
 Mix the cream and the condensed milk together. Spread uncrushed Grahams crackers on the first layer followed by mango on the second layer and the cream mixture on the third. Then follow the same order. With my 2 kilos of mango, I made 2 alternate layers on a 35x23cm 2.7 L rectangular Pyrex bakeware. 
Crush about 3 pieces of crackers (or Marie if Grahams isn't available) and spread it on top for a finer finish. Then sprinkle it with roasted cashew nuts and raisins. Freeze it overnight.

The reason I use uncrushed Grahams is that, it's easier to pile and it's more even than the crushed. The retained crunchiness of the cracker also adds to the overall result of the float. Also, if you don't like it very sweet, you may use 1:1 proportion for cream and condensed milk. Here in Thailand where Nestle Cream is not available, I use my imported one sparingly and so as my Grahams which I buy from the Philippines.
