Mango, Coconut, Key Lime Icebox Pie

This recipe takes me straight to the Caribbean Islands. I feel the warmth of the sunshine and see palm trees swaying in the breeze. The ocean is a gorgeous turquoise blue. All I need to complete this picture is a cold slice of Mango, Coconut, Key Lime Icebox Pie and a Tiki drink! Enjoy!

Mango, Coconut, Key Lime Icebox Pie

Coconut Graham Cracker Crust
1 and 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut
6 tablespoons Unsalted butter, melted 

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Stir all ingredients together. Press mixture firmly on bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie pan. Bake until lightly browned, 12-15 minutes. 

While crust is baking, make pie filling.

Mango, Coconut, Key Lime Pie Filling
4 egg yolks
1 (14 ounce) can coconut sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup mango puree
2 tablespoons key lime juice (I use Joe and Nelly’s bottled key lime juice)
Garnish: Whipped cream, toasted coconut, and fresh mango slices.

Beat egg yolks with a stand mixer 4 minutes. Yolks will change color and become pale and thick. Add coconut sweetened condensed milk. Beat 2 minutes. While mixer is running make mango puree. Use thawed, frozen mango or fresh mango slices. Puree in a mini food processor or Nutribullet. After pureeing let the puree sit for a few minutes then spoon off any extra liquid. Measure 3/4 cup puree. Add puree and lime juice to mixer. Mix until combined. Pour into prepared crust. Bake until 3-inches from crust is set, 30-35 minutes. Center of pie will set when it is refrigerated. Refrigerate until cold then garnish with whipped cream, toasted coconut, and mango slices.

Tip: Coconut sweetened condensed milk is lactose free. To make this recipe completely lactose free use Cool Whip in place of whipped cream.
