Mini Mango Floats with coconut milk are a refreshing, no-bake tropical dessert perfect for summer. Layers of mango, whipped coconut cream, and cookies create a chilled treat that’s ideal for any occasion.

Mango Float is a traditional Filipino dessert served cold and made of layers of fresh mango pieces, graham cookies, and whipped condensed milk cream. However, this version is slightly different because it’s made in individual vessels and uses coconut milk instead of condensed milk, making it a tad more tropical. These Mini Mango Floats are easy to make, fluffy, fruity, and simply irresistible. The kids will love digging into the many layers of textures.

How to Whip Coconut Milk?

This step is super simple, but here are a few tricks to ensure it works. First, refrigerate the coconut milk before whipping it and don’t shake it before opening it. Then, separate the liquid part from the solid coconut paste and keep the liquid for a smoothie. You have to whip the thicker part, the cream, and voila! Also, I like to whip the cream and coconut milk in separate bowls and merge them in the end, simply because they take a different time to get to the right consistency. The coconut milk won’t get as much fluff as the whipped cream.

Cookie Choice

The usual cookie choice would be the famous Graham Crackers, but any cookie would do. I’ve used my leftover digestive cookies, and they worked wonderfully. Please ensure your cookies fit into the glass vessels you want to use. But if not, crack them up and layer them overlapped; it will taste as good. This recipe calls for a few hours of rest in the refrigerator, softening your cookies and making them easier to dig through.

Oxidation of Mangoes

Oxidation of mangoes is manageable with this dessert; since it’s prepared 3 to 4 hours in advance, the mangoes don’t have time to change colour in the cold refrigerator. But if you want them to stay longer in the fridge, here are a few tricks to keep them vivid yellow:

  • Don’t use an overly ripe mango; it oxidizes faster.

  • Add a little bit of lemon or lime to your diced mango.

  • Cover the mango floats with plastic wrap.

  • This way, you ensure to keep its lovely bright colour!

Variations

You could use different types of fruits, like strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, cherries, or a combination of fruits.

As previously mentioned, this dessert can be eaten cold or frozen. If you ask me which I prefer between cold and frozen, by far, I would go with the cold one because of the three lovely textures: smooth, juicy, and crunchy. When it’s frozen, you lose some of the textures.

The traditional recipe uses condensed milk instead of coconut milk, so go ahead and switch it up by the same quantity if you want.

Storage

If you have too much or want an ultra-cold dessert, freeze it. It’s better to cover it with plastic wrap beforehand.

    Love the summer for the different varieties of mangoes 🥭 in season. Who can go wrong with coconut and fresh mangoes. I probably add some sweetened condensed milk for added sweetness. Thank for sharing your recipe.

    • Marie Breton

      Yes, the original recipe is condensed milk, but coconut milk is great when you want to cut on refined sugars.

    I loved these as a light no-bake dessert. I used gluten-free oat grahams since that’s what I had on hand. Went perfectly with my barbecue dinner.
