Long ago before I could find another Malaysian food blogger in my links... I was busy reading food blogs from all over world. Sassy's blog Pinoy Cook is one of them. I had always admired a busy lady like her could ever have so much time to spend in the kitchen dishing out so many lovely Pinoy dishes. I've learnt so much about Filipino's food from her blog.
This Mango Royale is one of the recipe I had always wanted to try out but somehow I never got round to it. I made a trip to Imbi Market recently for breakie and couldn't resist taking a walk around the fruits stalls. Hmmm seems like mangoes are in season now since every stall is busy promoting them. I bought 2 bagfuls of fruits and of course loads of mangoes too.
With so many mangoes on hand, I suddenly recalled this Mango Royale dessert and proceeded to dig out the recipe. Checked the fridge and I have all the ingredients needed.
I've reduced the portion by using only 50ml condensed milk with 200ml of cream ratio and used crushed digestive biscuits instead. Feel free to adjust the milk to control the sweetness that you would prefer. There was another recipe that Sassy have perfected using crushed graham crackers but I can't seems to find the link but nevermind, just use crushed digestive biscuit will do. You can replace the mango with strawberries or maybe some other fruits that tickled your fancy.
One tip... I did not follow Sassy's recipe asking to press down the crushed biscuits using hands but instead I used the back of a spoon and oh my I really compacted them which is totally a big booboo. The layer of biscuit became very hard after storing in the freezer LOL!!! Yup, even after defrosting for 30 minutes. *Ahem* so lesson learnt here. I've followed her advice though in scooping the halved mangoes with a spoon and used them like it is without cutting them further.
Once done, you might need to remove from the fridge for a while like maybe 10 - 15 minutes before cutting them into pieces for serving. As it turned out... it's one of the best dessert I've tasted in a long long time. The creamy bits complimented the sweet mangoes and seriously they're very very very addictive!!! My guinea pig can testify on that since he has not been saying good things about my cooking of late hehe... check out how mine looked like...
