This easy Mango Pie consists of a buttery crust filled with a thick and creamy mango filling. Perfect for mango lovers.
Mango Pie is a traditional dessert from the Atlantic region of Colombia. Mango is a very popular fruit in Colombia and we eat them fresh, often right from the trees! We use them to make traditional Colombian food like mango juice, mango sauce, salads and desserts, such as mango flan, mango popsicles (paletas), cakes, and jams, among others.
Ingredients for Mango Pie
Pie crust: you can use store-bought pie crust to make this mango pie, but I like using my homemade graham crust. It’s buttery and it goes perfect with creamy mango filling.
Mango: you can make your own pulp with fresh mangoes, but if you don't find ripe mango just use frozen pulp.
Sweet condensed milk and heavy cream: these two ingredients give the pie a delicious sweet flavor and a great creamy texture.

Expert Tips and Tricks
After the mango pie cools to room temperature, it should be refrigerated for at least 3 hours. It helps the filling to finish setting up properly.
You can top this mango pie with whipped cream, meringue or serve with vanilla or coconut ice cream on the side.
In the backyard of my paternal grandmother's house were about four mango trees. I wasn't as close to her as I was to my mom's mother, Mamita, but one of the things I enjoyed doing when I visited her was picking mangoes off the trees with a long wooden pole and eating them sprinkled with lime juice and salt. If you have never eat en green mangoes that way, you have to try it asap! It is a delicious treat and it is a Colombian street food staple.
This mango pie recipe is traditionally made with pie crust, but I prefer making mine with graham cracker crust. Feel free to use your favorite pie crust for this recipe, and you can use frozen pulp for the filling if you don't find fresh ripe mangoes.
This pie is great for parties, picnics, and any family dinner you want to make that much more special.
