Why not use our local produce to make desserts at home? This no-bake mango recipe is easy as pie!
1/2 cup (4 ounces) butter, melted
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 (8-ounce) bar cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup fresh mango purée (from 4 to 6 mango cheeks)
2 1/4 teaspoons or 1 packet gelatin, dissolved in 2 tablespoons cold water and left to stand for 5 minutes
1 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
1 Prepare the crust: Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Press into a 9-inch pie plate to make a 1 inch crust. Chill.
2 Make the filling: Combine cream cheese and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in mango purée.
3 Bring 2 tablespoons hot water to a boil. Stir in hydrated gelatin until it melts. Stir gelatin mixture into the cream cheese-mango mixture.
4 Fold whipped cream into the mixture until combined. Pour over the chilled crust. Chill for 6 hours or overnight.
5 Serve with whipped cream and cubed fresh mangoes, if desired.
