Mango Rum Tiramisu

8 Servings

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

½ cup heavy whipping cream

⅓ cup mango nectar*

¼ cup rum

18 split (36 pieces) small, soft ladyfingers

2 small, ripe mangos, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced, divided

¼ 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 ¾ 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.
