Mango parfait is one of the easiest yet classical mango desserts. Just slice up some mangoes and add them to a blender. Measure 1/2 cup of whipping cream and whip until soft peaks. Add in your mango pulp and mix well. Do not overbeat the mixture as it can lead to the air removal from the whipping cream. For a balanced sweet flavor add in your cream cheese. Cream cheese will balance the sweetness yet give your dessert a very rich flavor. Pour the mixture into cute dessert cups and serve by topping off with whipping cream.
