I went to a cooking show at the university by Taste of Home. I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy the recipes, but the whole show was a lot of fun. The made entrees, soup, salad, desserts. One of the desserts the chef made was mango lime pie. We didn’t get to sample any of the recipes, so I was curious about how it tasted. I decide to get the ingredients and try it out!
I’ve never really cooked with mango. To be honest, they are a little foreign to me. However, once I figured out how to cut the things, they tasted pretty good. Between juicing the limes and cutting up the mangoes, my hands were pretty messy. Other than that, the recipe is very straight forward. And delicious! It reminded me of a dreamsicle, just more mango flavored instead of orange.
- 1 store bought graham cracker crust (or you can make your own)
- 2 mangoes, chopped (you can also use frozen and thawed mango)
- ½ tablespoon lime zest (I just zested the two limes before I squeezed them)
- Freshly squeezed juice of two limes (about ¼ cup)
- 1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
- 1½ cups heavy cream, chilled (I might try just using 1 cup next time)
- Blend the mango, lime zest, lime juice and sweetened condensed milk in a food processor until smooth.
- In a separate bowl, whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Fold the cream into the mango mixture with a spatula.
- Spoon the filling into the graham cracker crust and freeze, covered, for 3 hours or until firm.
- Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
