Sunday Recipe (on Monday)- Mango Pie

Here we are for another Sunday Recipe! I learned how to make this amazing no-bake Mango Pie from my mom so many years ago and it's a staple dessert I make for large groups of Indians.  My momma raised me right and the Southern way- never go to anyone's home empty handed! SO, I ended up made this when I was in Detroit (AFTER I was sick, I could barely stand the day I made this so my mom helped out a ton) at the beginning of the month to take over to my brother's fiancee's house when we went for dinner one night.  We didn't eat it that night/I never heard anything back so I hope they enjoyed this amazingness. This recipe is fairly easy and straightforward (no-bake, yes!!!):


  • 1 can mango pulp
  • 1 graham cracker pie crust (make your own or store bought- I used store bought because it was easier & quicker!)
  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin (I got store brand but usually prefer the Knox brand)
  • 1 brick of cream cheese

  1. Prepare the gelatin based on the directions on the package (usually boil 1/2C of water, add the pkg contents to the water and stir until dissolved, then cool).IMG 20130706 103811 089 
  2. Mix the mango pulp, cooled gelatin mixture and room temperature cream cheese. I used an emmersion blender to make sure everything was combined evenly and the gelatin was evenly distributed.

  4. Set the pie in the fridge for a couple hours. I left it in the fridge for about 3 hours and they looked perfect!
