Spiced Mango Parfaits

Spiced Mango Parfaits ~ Mangoes, Coconut - so tropical ! AND it is a low-fat dessert ! #MangoParfaits #Parfait #LowFatDessert


This is such a tropical dessert and best of all - it is low-fat !  It is a quick and easy recipe so you only need minutes to get this ready.

The Spiced Mango Parfaits has whipped low-fat evaporated milk instead of whipped cream, which means it must be enjoyed shortly after they are prepared.

Unfortunately, evaporated milk does not last as long when whipped, but, seeing as I am really, really missing my desserts, I do not mind making these {and as I mentioned - it only takes a couple of minutes!} and serve them straight after.
