Mango Parfait with Pastry Cream

Hello The Crafting Nook Friends! This is Fabiola from and I am very exited to be the guest blogger today. I love DYI, thrifting, cooking and refinishing furniture. Hope you to see you around! 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. Today I’m sharing this delicious Mango Parfait with Pastry Cream!

Mango Parfait with Pastry Cream

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.
