Mango Graham Freezer Cake

Mango Graham Freezer Cake is a delicious combination of fresh mango in a sweet milk filling layered between graham crackers.  There’s something irresistible about the combination of tropical fruits and the sweet milk.  Mango Graham Freezer Cake is  simple, delicious, and refreshing.  It can also be made ahead of time and stored, covered in the freezer for up to a month until you are ready to serve it.  Unfortunately, it never lasts that long around my house.   The still frozen cake disappears, one piece at a time, from our freezer. Mango Graham Freezer CakeI first learned about this recipe from a friend, Jackie, but I kept putting off making it until I had forgotten what she had told me.  Fortunately, another friend, Aimee, was able to tell me the recipe again.  When I finally made it, I couldn’t believe that I had put it off for so long.  The process to make a Mango Graham Freezer Cake is so simple, and the cake is delicious. I know this will be in regular rotation on our menu whenever fresh Mangoes are available for a good price.

I chose this recipe for my 30 days of cans challenge because it uses two different canned milk products, and honestly,  I don’t use canned milk often.  The primary reason I use canned milk is to make homemade fudge.  In addition to using cans, one of the reasons for this challenge is to learn new ways to use canned products.     This recipe definitely fit the bill, and it didn’t disappoint.

The media crema is chilled and whipped.  It doesn’t really whip like cream, but give it a spin with your mixer for a few minutes.  Add the sweetened condensed milk, mix well,  and then set it aside.

To assemble the cake, you start with a layer of graham crackers in the bottom of a 9X13 inch pan.  Then pour 1/4 of the cream and condensed milk mixture on top of the graham crackers.  Top the milk covered graham crackers with 1/3 of the pieces of diced mango. Mango Graham Freezer Cake

    1. It was really good. We made this with sliced bananas, too, and it was good, too. We don’t recommend freezing the one made with banana, though. Just store it in the refrigerator.
