#MakeItJolly: Fruit Cocktail Float

In this side of the world, mango float is a popular dessert because it is easy and quick to make. No complications at all.
However, when you run out of mangoes, making a float recipe is no longer an option. But, do you know that you can substitute mangoes with fruit cocktail? I just did and I also tried using brojas or broas (ladyfinger biscuits) instead of graham crackers. 
Brojas or broas (ladyfinger biscuit) is an egg-based and sweet sponge biscuits roughly shaped like a large finger. It’s like a dry sponge cake and yep, it is a biscuit and some parts of country used it for dessert recipes too.
Here’s our tasty fruit cocktail float recipe.


  • 3-4 ripe mangoes, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 1 can Jolly Tropical Fruit Cocktail 850g, drained
  • 1 can Jolly Cow Condensada 390g
  • 2-3 packs 250 ml All Purpose cream
  • 2-3 packs Brojas or Broas (Ladyfinger biscuits)


  • Combine condensed milk and all-purpose cream. Mix well. You can adjust condensed milk depending on your sweetness. 
  • Arrange the brojas or broas (ladyfinger biscuits) on the bottom of the container.
  • Pour in cream mixture on top of the arranged brojas or broas (ladyfinger biscuits).
  • Arrange a portion of fruit cocktail over the cream.
  • Arrange your mango slices over the fruit cocktail.
  • Pour in cream mixture on top of fruits and mango slices.
  • Repeat the layer from biscuits -> cream -> fruit cocktail -> mango slices -> cream
  • Top with brojas or broas (ladyfinger biscuits).
  • Freeze to harden the cream.

Serve chilled 🙂
