No-Bake Mango Coconut Pie

Hi everyone! I’m skipping out on my usual Medical Mondays post this week, partly because I don’t like double-posting, but also because I’m in boards study hibernation from now til the end of July!

This doesn’t mean I’ll no longer be posting, because I’ve actually been preparing for this over the last couple months, and I have a number of posts scheduled through November-ish. My Dish The Fit posts are usually the only ones that are written the week of. :O

If I don’t respond to you right away, please realize that it’s not personal. It’s just that my future is kinda riding on this exam, and I’d love to become a legit physician someday. :O

That being said, it’s time for June’s Recipe ReDux! This week’s theme was…

Pie Love: Tucked in a crust, nothing says love from the oven like pie. Whether it’s a twist on the all-American apple pie or a traditional recipe from your home country, give a healthy makeover to your favorite savory or sweet pie recipe.

I love pie–I really do–both the dessert kind and the savory kind (past creations have included homemade Spiced Kabocha Shepherd’s Pie and Banana Cream Pie!). But what with it being so hot and humid lately (not going to complain though because I don’t miss winter at all), I haven’t really felt like turning my oven on.

So I went for a no-bake “pie.” The term, “pie,” may actually be a little misleading here, because this is really more like a smoothie in pie form. If that’s blaspheming, I apologize. Please consider this valentine my apology:

You might also be compelled to forgive me if I were to tell you that I’m in the process of moving out of my apartment (why does it seem like I’m always moving in and out of places?). I’ve lived in 8 different places in the past 8 years, and this number will likely double by the end of the next school year, because guess who’s traversing the country for her 4th-year clinical rotations?! That’s right! This girl!

Anyway, if you recall the Fruit Tarts I made earlier this year, I decided on using that again for the crust! In retrospect, I probably should have used made more to build up the crust on the sides, but…I did not, so I instead used toasted coconut chips.

No-Bake Mango Coconut Pie

    Pie is my favorite dessert!! I’m going to have a pie bar at my wedding with lots of assorted pies for guests rather than a lot of cake. We will have a smaller cake. πŸ™‚ I’m heading over to check out that banana cream pie recipe you linked. Good luck with your next move! I need some of your moving expertise vibes this upcoming Friday. I’m so nervous for my first major move.

    1. Farrah

      Ahhh, that’s such an awesome idea! <3 I bet people will love it! :]

      I hope your move went smoothly! I love that you named your houseplant! πŸ˜€ My tomato plant back home was named Apollo! (Before a raccoon murdered it, but that is a story for another time...)

    Coconut and mango are 2 of my favorite summer combos and Farrah – I just gotta say – I wish I could faceplant into this!

    1. Farrah

      hahaha, I was somewhat tempted to as well, but the urge to devour it was [thankfully] stronger! πŸ˜›

    OMG this looks amazing! I’ll have to make it for a group of friends, too bad I’m allergic to mangos!

    1. Farrah

      Aww, darn! Maybe you could sub it with pineapple? :D! Just as tropical, and maybe it’d be like pina colada!

  14. Michaell @ Foodscape

    This sounds so good! I have a similar pie but I don’t use banana in mine. I bet this is such great comfort food…and still healthy! Gorgeous!

    1. Farrah

      Thanks so much! :]! I think I only added banana in an effort to use up the stuff in my fridge, so I definitely think it’d be awesome just with the mango (yay for more mango!).

  15. Jess @hellotofit

      hehehe, no-bake recipes are definitely my favorite when it’s summer and/or I’m feeling lazy! πŸ˜€

  18. Sonali- The Foodie Physician

    This pie screams summer!! I love the flavor combo and that fact that it’s no bake is such a bonus! Those other pie links were equally amazing- banana cream pie is my all-time favorite!
