  • 1 kiwifruit
  • 1 mango
  • 14 strawberries
  • ½ pint heavy cream
  • 3 ½ tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 slices Japanese sandwich bread


  • Slice and peel the kiwifruit into 3/4-inch thick rounds.
  • Peel the mango, trim off the tapered edges, and cut the mango into 3/4-inch thick batons.
  • Remove the tops from the strawberries. If they are very large, slice them in half.
  • Add the heavy cream, sweetened condensed milk, and vanilla extract to a cold bowl and whip the cream until firm peaks form.
  • Spread an even layer of whipped cream on 4 slices of bread.
  • Top the cream with the fruit. Be sure to arrange them along where you will cut the sandwich so that the fruit shows up evenly.
  • Fill in the gaps between the fruit with more cream, and then top the fruit with an even layer of cream.
  • Cover the sandwiches with the remaining four slices of bread, and then remove the crusts.
  • Refrigerating the sandwiches for at least 1 hour will make them easier to cut. When you are ready to eat them, slice them into halves or quarters.
