Frozen Mango Margarita Pie With a Pretzel Crust

Mango Margarita Pie

 

This frozen mango margarita pie is a pie that I wanted all to myself.  I snuck small slices out of the freezer for too many days in a row.  (The last couple of slices I had were a bit freezer-burnt, which didn’t stop me at all from eating them.)  This frozen mango margarita pie a grown-up welcome wagon for summer.  It’s the pie version of a frozen cocktail with a salted rim – icy and smooth.  You won’t get drunk from a slice, but if you lived my dream of digging in with a fork and devouring the entire pie in one sitting, you would be both stuffed and tipsy.

I developed the frozen mango margarita pie recipe as part of a cookbook for The National Mango Board.  mango board cookbook

You can download a PDF of the whole cookbook for free at The National Mango Board’s website.  There are so many mango recipes that I want to try, like overnight oatmeal with mango and coconut milk and spicy mango sweet potato hash.

If you shy away from using fresh mango because it's a pain to cut, you might want to try this tool.  I haven't personally used it, but it has incredible reviews.

    What a fantastic flavor combo! I love it, Stef! Our neighbor’s mango tree didn’t bear fruit this year (mega bummer) but I can get plenty of mangoes at the farmer’s market this time of year. I would love to raid somebody’s liquor cabinet to whip up this yummy sounding pie. Yum! Pinning.
