Prep time: 25 minutes - Chill time: 6 to 24 hours


  • 1 (8-ounce) container mascarpone cheese
  • 1 (6-ounce) container vanilla yogurt
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup mango nectar*
  • 1/4 cup rum

  • 2 small, ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced, divided
  • 1/4 cup shaved white chocolate
  • Mint leaves

In a medium bowl, beat mascarpone, yogurt and sugar until smooth. In a separate bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold whipped cream into cheese mixture; set aside.

Combine nectar and rum in a shallow dish. Quickly dip each side of the ladyfingers into the mango mixture. Place half of the ladyfingers in the bottom of an 8-inch glass baking dish so they fit tightly.

Spread half of the cream mixture, then top with 3/4 of the mango slices. Repeat ladyfinger and cream layers, then sprinkle with chocolate. Cover tightly and chill for 6 to 24 hours.

Cut into 8 pieces; garnish with remaining mango slices and mint leaves. May be served refrigerated or frozen.
