Raw Mango Pie

It is mango season in South Africa, and mangoes are cheap right now. As promised here is the Mango Pie recipe – it is easy, quick, healthy and yummy. Make a few and freeze for when mangoes are out of season. Or just freeze peeled, chopped mangoes and use from frozen.

Ingredients for the crust:

  1. 2 cups cashew nuts or almonds (or a mixture of both) – soaked for 2 – 12 hours, then dried either in the sun for approx. 1 1/2 hours or in a dehydrator or simply with a clean tea towel, then finely ground.
  2. Organic maple syrup or honey – enough to make a sticky dough when mixed with the ground nuts.
  3. Add organic coconut blossom sugar or xylitol if you like it sweeter (optional)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon of natural vanilla powder or contents of one vanilla pod

Method:

  • Mix all the above ingredients to form a sticky dough. 
  • Press into pie dish
  • Refrigerate until filling is ready

Alternatively you can also use the base of the Raw Lemon Pie.

Ingredients for filling:

  1. 3 – 4 mangoes (depending on size) – peeled & stone removed
  2. 2/3 cup of organic coconut oil
  3. 1/2 teaspoon Himalaya salt
  4. 1/2 natural vanilla
  5. honey or coconut blossom sugar if mangoes are not sweet enough. (taste mixture first, as mostly one does not need any extra sweetener)

Method:

  • Blend all ingredients together
  • Fill into pie shell
  • Refrigerate for 1 1/2 hours or freeze
  • Decorate with berries and serve cold

Ring the changes:

Leave the crust out and serve the filling as a dessert mousse topped with berries.
