Mango Coconut Semifreddo:

1 package Shirriff Coconut Pudding & Pie Filling Mix
1 cup Whipping Cream (35% divided)
0.33 cup Icing sugar, sifted and divided
1 tsp vanilla extract
8 oz ginger snap cookies (about 40 cookies)
0.75 cup toasted coconut
1 cup diced ripe mango




Prepare Shirriff Key Coconut Pudding & Pie Filling Mix according to package directions. Let cool completely.


Meanwhile, beat 1/2 cup (125 mL) cream until stiff peaks form; beat in 1/4 cup (60 mL) icing sugar and vanilla until blended. Fold into prepared filling.

Spread one-third of the cream mixture over top. Sprinkle with 2 tbsp (30 mL) toasted coconut. Repeat layers twice, ending with final layer of cookies on top. Cover with overhanging plastic wrap; freeze for 2 to 4 hours or until thoroughly chilled and set.


Before serving, whip remaining cream and icing sugar until stiff peaks form. Invert cake onto serving plate and spread whipped cream over top and sides. Top with mango and sprinkle with remaining coconut.
