MANGO FLOAT CAKE

Are you a fan of no-bake and chilled fruit cakes like this one? This mango float cake is the perfect summer dessert and one of the easiest cake to whip up!

You don’t need an oven to make a great dessert.

Mango float cake is a very popular Filipino dessert ‘icebox cake’ also called Mango Royalethat is a big hit during the holiday seasons or any other special occasion. Soft clouds of sweetened cream and generous bits of sweet mangoes between softened layers of graham crackers. Its creamy and refreshing with loads of bright, summery fresh fruit flavor. This vegan version tastes so legit it’ll surprise everyone at your next party! You can also replace mangoes with peaches.

 

I soak the crackers in evaporated milk before layering it down. This will help making it easier to cut through the cake without mushing it down and it adds another rich comforting flavour. Veganising this  mango float cake is so easy with Nature’s Charm evaporated milk, coconut whipped cream and condensed milk.

You may line your container with a parchment paper so you can lift the whole cake once frozen. Just make sure to use a sturdy one so it will not break even when soaked.

The hardest part of the recipe is waiting for the cake to set!

Enjoy making this fluffy goodness! xx

  • Line the dish with graham crackers. Spread half of the cream mixture on top of the graham. Spread half of the sliced mangoes on top of the cream. Repeat the process to make the second layer of graham, cream mixture and remaining sliced mangoes. Spread the mangoes evently and finish with sprinkles of crushed crackers. Place in the freezer.
  • Chill for at least 3 hours before slicing. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

You can either freeze or chill the cake in the fridge overnight. Freezing will result in a more ice cream cake-like end product which you would have to thaw several minutes before serving. Chilling will result in a creamy, ready-to-eat cake out of the fridge.

Play around and omit the vanilla bean with 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon or orange juice instead.

These white chocolates do best stored in the freezer, otherwise they begin to get soft at room temp. You can also pour the mixture into a pan lined with parchment.

EASY VEGAN CHOCOLATE

Do you know this urge of chocolate which kicks in out of nowhere sometimes? Thats the time where you’ll need this recipe! Quality vegan chocolate isn’t easy to find and it is always better to make it yourself anyway, so I thought, I’m gonna share my survival recipe kit with you, especially amazing during this unique time!

I often whip up this super delicious and easy chocolate recipes that is done in no time and can be enjoyed in only after 1-2 hours. 

So, why make chocolate at home when you can buy it at the store? Let me tell you.

Homemade is simply better.
It’s naturally sweetened.
No suspicious ingredients.
Vegan, gluten free, guaranteed.
It’s fun.

Trust me, homemade chocolate all the way. Plus, it’s customizable. I left mine pretty basic, adding only roasted peanuts, peanut butter and a little sea salt. But you could add dried fruit, other toasted nuts and butter, toasted coconut…really anything you’re craving.

Make this chocolate exactly how you like it! It’s the perfect base for experimenting while you are stuck at home.

I’ve been making a batch and keeping them in the freezer for an after-dinner treat. The mini molds make them the perfect size for indulging without overdoing it.

Spaghetti Ice Cream Vegan

Vegan Ice Cream

Dessert, RECIPES, VeganCrush | December 21, 2019 | By

Spaghetti Ice Cream is a popular ice cream dish in Germany “Spaghetti-EIS” made to look like a plate of spaghetti. Surely a fun and delicious surprise for every sweet dessert table or even as a unique Christmas treat.

In Germany they sell a special press for Spaghetti Ice Cream but you can also use a potato ricer which may take a little practice as you have to make sure your ice cream is soft enough to press through your potato ricer. 

You can strain the strawberry sauce to get a more refined finish. The cashew meal is to simulate the parmesan cheese but you can also use other ground nuts such as almond or macadamia nuts. 

Vegan Ice cream recipe

Spaghetti Ice Cream Sundae Vegan

Course Dessert

Equipment

  • potato ricer
  • Blender

Ingredients
  

Sweet Condensed Milk

  • 500 g Samui Coconut Milk full fat, chilled
  • 125 g brown sugar

Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream

  • 750 g Samui Coconut Milk full fat, chilled
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250 g condensed milk

Strawberry Sauce

  • 200 g fresh strawberries
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice fresh
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

Instructions
 

  • For the condensed milk whisk together 500g coconut milk and 125g brown sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk often and bring to a low simmer. Continue to simmer until milk has reduced by half, about 30 minutes. Let completely cool.
  • In a bowl add 750g coconut milk and whisk using a hand blender to thicken. Add the condensed coconut milk and vanilla extract. Whisk until well combined and transfer in a container. Place in the freezer and leave until ice cream has firmed up completely.
  • In a blender combine strawberry, orange juice and maple syrup and mix until nice and saucy. Keep in the fridge.
  • Ones the ice cream has completely chilled down let sit in room temperature to slightly soften. Fill a potato ricer with 3 scoops of ice cream. Hold ricer over a serving plate or bowl and squeeze ice cream through, swirling to create “spaghetti". Make sure your vanilla ice cream is soft enough to press through your potato ricer. If it is too soft it will melt, it needs to be just soft enough to squeeze through easily, and this may take a little practice. Sprinkle some cashew meal on top and enjoy immediately.
