Mango is my favorite fruit for its sweetness, texture and variety.
It is a multifaceted fruit, which you can use in drinks, desserts, salads and savory recipes.
Taking advantage of the quantity and variety of mangoes found locally, I bought a box of 12 at a local supermarket for $3.99. What a great price!
To take full advantage of all the product, I gave myself the task to wash, peel and cutting into small pieces all of the mangoes. I froze the remainder for future use…
… and today, I bring you an exquisite Mango Parfait recipe with pastry cream, whipped cream and nuts.
Ingredients for Pastry Cream:
3 cups of milk
3 eggs yolks
1/2 cup of sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/4 tsp. salt
1 vanilla pod cut lengthwise
Ingredients for mango puree:
2 ripe mangoes blended in a food processor
Ingredients for whipped cream:
1 cup of heavy cream
2 tablespoon of sugar
For garnish: Optional
mango cubes and nuts
Directions: For Pastry Cream
Prepare an ice bath.
Beat eggs yolks with milk until incorporated.
Mix sugar, cornstarch and salt in a non stick saucepan.
Add the yolk and milk mix and the vanilla pod.
Cook on medium/low heat stirring constantly until thickened and gets to a boiling point.
Boil for 1 minute and remove from heat.
Place the pan in the ice bath. Move softly for a few minutes until cool. Cover with food film, and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Make layers of pastry cream, mango puree, whipped cream and nuts! Enjoy!
