Weekend bonding over M.Y. San Grahams Mango Float

by - September 08, 2019

The weekend is always my favorite time of the week because it’s the chance I get to spend with my favorite boys without having to stress about work or worry about school and it’s OUR moment together to relax or bond. For me, that’s what makes up a great weekend. :)

During those two days, there are times that we go out, find something new to do or stay at home. In the case of just being indoors, my family and I often watch home movies and eat home cooked meals. But it’s rare that we get to do our own dessert and since the boys are dessert fiends, I decided to do something fun and yummy with them – create our very own Mango Float!

Doing Mango Float is quite new to me since I’ve never done it before. Though, I have eaten it a few times already and always see it a lot online. Since this was fairly new, I’m glad I had a recipe book to help me with. :)

For this one, our main ingredient is the M.Y. San Honey Grahams. :) This one, I am very much familiar with because as a kid, my mom used to bake a lot at home and she would use M.Y. San Honey Grahams for her delicious blueberry cheesecake crust and if you ask me, that was my favorite part! ^_^ I learned cooking and baking from her, but I have to admit that I still have so much to catch up on!

I’m glad that there are several variants now of M.Y. San Grahams. I remember how my mom would put crackers in a plastic bag before and use a roller to crush them. Sometimes I would help her do that task hihi! Now, we have the original M.Y. San Honey Grahams, M.Y. San Chocolate Graham Crackers and the M.Y. San Crushed Grahams! :)

Before it was baking with my mom and now, I get to do the same with my kids! I guess you can say that ever since, M.Y. San Grahams already played a role in our homes bonding time. :)

For this Mango Float, what you’ll need are:


(2)  200g M.Y. San Honey Grahams
(2) Cups of all-purpose cream
(1 1/2) cups of condensed milk
(3) Ripe mango

* I personally had to double the ingredients for this because I used a large pan and the original recipe on the book I think only covered a small one.*

Below is a sample of what 1 cup of All Purpose Cream and ¾ cup of Condensed milk looks like and basically, you just add two of each in a bowl. :)


1.     DO FILLINGIn a bowl, combine chilled cream and condensed milk
2.     LAYERLayer M.Y. San Honey Graham Crackers on the bottom of a rectangular or square pan (whichever you have at home). Pour cream, then followed by mangoes. Repeat process to make 2 or 3 layers, ending with the cream and top with mangoes.
3.    CHILL and SERVE!

Since we weren’t able to do this, I want to highly recommend it to you, guys instead. :)  You can use a hand mixer or whisk to give you a much fluffier cream for your Mango Float. Ours was thin, so I think its best to whisk it up for thicker and better consistency. :)

I think being a parent in this day and age, it’s important to bond and spend as much time with your kids, because they grow up so fast. One minute they’re this tiny and the next, they’re off on their own adventures. Having moments like this with them teaches them the value of family time and taking it slow in this fast paced world.

I’d like to believe that boys should learn how to bake or cook too! So, this is an added skill for them! ;)

This is a really easy dessert to do with your little kids since it requires no oven time or any tedious steps. :) They even enjoyed layering so much that I only had to do the top part haha! :)

After 2-3 hours, here’s our very own Mango Float! :) I think, not too bad for first timers, right? ;) Can’t wait to do more M.Y. San Graham recipes with my boys!

If you also want to spend weekends with your little kids over fun desserts or snacks, check out the M.Y. San Graham website: http://www.mysan-grahams.com.ph/recipes for more delicious recipes you could make during family bonding! :) We’re eyeing on the M.Y. San Graham Iced Candy next!
