Best Mango Pie Recipe | No-Bake dessert ideas  


I never believed in love at first sight, but until I met this simple “Mango Pie”. Months back, Jeevs had a potluck at his office. That evening, he brought me a slice of mango pie from the party. The moment I saw the pie, I fell in love with it Red heartPrincessRed heart. The color was so glamorous, its texture… so shiny and silky, the taste… “oohhhh… so so divine!”. I finished licking the plate in few seconds like a hungry little pussy cat Cat faceand asked him, “Why didn’t you manage to grab some more slice of the pie?” Open-mouthed smileThat day I learnt the recipe and saved it to be presented for the New Year 2013.


In fact, I should tell you that you’ve landed on the right spot if you’re looking for a quick and easy dessert for your pot-luck parties. Yeah, this is a very simple mango pie recipe that needs no baking and involves no messing in your kitchen. Just pour in the ingredients, blend and refrigerate. That very simple dessert but one which will beat all other desserts brought to any big get-together parties Party smile.

Before we move on to the steps on how to make mango pie, let me show you the ingredients required for making mango pie.

Pie Base: I got a ready-made no-bake crust (Graham’s ready crust). It’s a 9 inch pie crust. Save the plastic cover in the product. We will need it once we finish preparing the pie (Step 7).

What gives the jelly consistency to the mango pie? I got Knox gelatin (unflavored). I used just one packet. That itself gave enough jelly-ness to the pie. You can substitute gelatin with agar agar.

If you’re lucky to make your own mango puree/pulp, fine. I got a tin of sweetened mango pulpfrom the Indian stores. [If your mango pulp is not very sweet then you will have to use 1/2 cup of sugar (adjust sugar amount according to your taste). You can also substitute sugar with 1/2 cup of sweetened condensed milk]

I used 1 full pack of Philadelphia cream cheese (226 g/ 8 oz.).dessert with mango puree

Step 1.
Soften the cream cheese. I kept it on kitchen counter for an hour and beat with an egg-whisk.

Step 2.
Heat 1/2 cup of water. Once it begins to boil, take it from stove. Add a sachet of gelatin and stir continuously as you add. I used egg-whisk to make it dissolve. Set aside until it reaches room temperature. [By the time it reaches room temperature it will turn jelly. So don’t get confused.]

Step 3.
Now add together the mango pulp, softened cream cheese and gelatin [if you use sugar/sweetened condensed milk, add them together] into the mixer jar.cream-cheese-recipes-1

Step 4.
I pulsed them for about 5-7 seconds in my mixie. [You can use your electric blender, if you have one. You can also beat them with hands using an egg-whisk, but since my gelatin firmed I used my mixer grinder]. Check the sugar.

Step 5.
Pour the mixing into the pie crust.

Step 6.
The quantity given in the ingredients list exactly fits a 9 inch pie crust. See… Nerd smile.

Step 7.
Close the filled crust with the cover. Refrigerate it for 6 hours. I kept it in my fridge overnight. [By the way, it’s up to you to decide if you really need a pie crust. Yeah, you can just pour them into a bowl/cup and simply scoop it and enjoy after refrigerating]

Step 8.

And…. the mango pie is ready. [Oh, you see two pieces missing before I presented them to you? I shared them with my neighbors Open-mouthed smile]

Step 9.
Slice the mango pie gently with a knife and serve it. Here, I sliced one for you, topped with some whipped cream and raspberry. Enjoy Hot smile …..  Ah… should I say kids love this mango pie? Sarcastic smile

[By the way, if my regular readers are wondering about my suddenly occurred skills on photography… it was all Mr. Nikon SLR Camera ]


And this is how you’ve to eat and enjoy a mango pie. This time no bullet points. A Visual treat. Yummmmmmmmm…………..Angel


So, do you want appreciations for your dessert when you take it for a potluck? Want everybody at your get-together party to inquire “who brought this lovely dessert?”…? Want your friends to index “you” when people ask “Whose recipe is this?”…? Well, then you must try making this Yummy Mango Pie and serve them Flirt male.

Dear Readers,
Sure the recipe tastes far great than the pictures shown. To show you the process in making the recipe with step-by-step pictures and to show you the outcome of the recipes with some cool photographs, I spend quite a lot of time in photographing it without minding the food getting dry or limp or not-so-hot-enough for us to eat (or sometimes without minding that we are hungry :)

But your comments can make me forget all my tiresome efforts I spend in deciding, preparing, cooking, shooting and composing a recipe post just for you! If you find the recipe useful please leave us a comment. I would also like to know if you tried the recipe and if the recipe came out well. Even if it didn’t, tell me that. I can guess or figure out what might have gone wrong or if I missed out to put any essential points in my recipe post. You can share the pictures of the tried recipes in our Facebook page or you can e-mail us!

Thank you for your visit.
Read more. Try out our recipes. Eat well!

    Nice visual treat Meenakshi! I never tasted a pie yet! 🙂 Somehow I don’t like it, and avoided it whenever I get a chance to taste it! haha!

    Wish You and Your Family ” A Very Happy New Year!”

    • Thank you Mahi. How do you reply immediately to a post?
      Next time when you get a chance, taste it. But how can you say you do not like it without tasting it? Is it the “look” of the pie that is keep you away from it?

      Happy New Year wishes to you and your family too Mahi 🙂

      • andrea andrews

        that pie was the best looking thing I ever see,and the lone looks of it you can tell that it is very nice. my head is hurting me for a large slice.I dont taste it ,but I no its the best.

        • 🙂 Thank you Andrea for having belief in my Mango Pie recipe 🙂

  • NokiaFanboi

    Looks nice.

  • Mahi

    I updated my blog Meenakshi! My turn to remind you..7 days of the new year is almost over! 🙂 😉

    My Hubby was on vacation, that’s why blogging took the back seat! 😉

    BTW, I don’t like the creamy texture of the pie..or the raw smell in the cream cheese..or the very thin crust?! …hmmm! I donno! But Mango pie looks like an exception! Can try yours though! Looks tempting! 😛

    • என்னது? நீங்களும் போஸ்ட் போட்டாச்சா? தோ…. வாரேன் 🙂

      🙂 hei me too posted the homemade pakoda recipe which was in my draft for 3 weeks. Thanks for the reminder anyways.

  • aam

    Oh thanks Mangala; I checked your blog for idli fermentation and now will score the cupboard to check if that tin of mango something a friend brought is – maybe … keep your fingers crossed – mango pulp. If it is I’ll give the recipe a go sometime this week, it seems to be dead easy. In the meantime the idli batter is sitting in a warm surrounding and will hopefully bubble soon (here in Germany we have but 5 degrees) …

  • Really super recipe, can’t wait to Goa this summer we have our backyard full of ripe mangoes…so yay!!!!!

  • asmaa

    Super yummy . Loooooove it !!!!!!

  • 🙂 That’s true Keerthi. But did you try in Nilgris? I think we’ll be able to get cream cheese there. Also, about the gelatin, we will be able to get agar-agar in our departmental stores in India. Please try.

  • Aa123

    If I use agar agar should i follow the same steps?

    • Aa123,
      Yes please follow the same steps.
      However, I have never tried this recipe using Agar agar for gelatin.
      I found few helpful pointers from wiki on how to set ready agar agar (agar agar has a slightly different property than gelatin)

      The granulated form of agar agar is twice as strong as the flaked form, while the powdered form is three times as strong.

      Follow the instructions for activating agar agar with great care. It does not set at the same temperatures as gelatin, hence people tend to assume it doesn’t work. However, it does, provided it is handled correctly. For example, agar agar requires a rapid boil and not a mere simmer in order to activate when added to a recipe requiring heating.

      And, agar agar gels at room temperature when gelatin requires chilling.

      Soak agar agar first for 10 minutes in the liquid it is to be cooked in. This makes it easier to dissolve.

      2 tablespoons of powder, 1 tablespoon of flakes to 600ml (1 pint) of liquid will produce a firm jelly.

  • Pushkala

    Hi I tried ur recipe. I refrigerated for 12 hrs i.e., overnight…..
    still the pie is not yet formed 🙁 🙁 🙁 🙁
    could you please give any tip for forming.. this is the second time i am trying 🙁 🙁 please help me 🙁

    • Pushkala,
      Thanks for contacting. I’m too upset that the pie did not set well for you.
      Please answer my below questions:
      1. Did you follow the recipe steps “as is” in the blog?
      2. Did you check the temperature of your refrigerator? Please set it to HIGH and test the recipe with small quantity.

      Awaiting your reply.

      • Pushkala

        Hi Meenakshi,

        I followed the recipe steps and my refrigerator temp is also high. I have used jello brand of gelatin powder.

        • I used Knox gelatin (plain) powder. Not sure if the brands have different instructions in their pack to set the gelatin for jelling. I really wish I were near you to help you with the recipe. I feel ugly that my pointers are not helping you Pushkala…. 🙁

        • Divya Marimuthu

          I used Jello brand too and the pie was a disaster didn’t set. I think it has got to do with the Jello because it requires 2 cups of water. Ordered the Knox brand from Amazon will report back after trying this weekend

          • oh no! Sorry that your pie became a disaster. Sure try with knox and write to me about the outcome of the pie. Thumbs up Divya!

          • Divya Marimuthu

            Its okay I ate it like a pudding anyways hehehe. It is too tasty to just skip because of the texture lol.

          • 😀 😀

          • Divya Marimuthu

            So I did 3 pies this weekend and all three turned up really good. Knox for the win :).
            I made three because that many get together s/ pot lucks . Decorated them with strawberries from farmer’s market yummm. Whatever was left out I poured them into desert bowls and ate like mousse.

          • Thank you so so soooo much Divya for trying out this yummy Mango Pie Dessert Recipe for all your potlucks . Thanks for the trials too 🙂

  • Marleen van Tilburg

    Hello! I’m going to try your pie today, yet I’m not sure about the cream cheese. Do you reckon i could substitute with Greek yogurt? Maybe add a little bit of sugar? I’ve got two ripe mangoes that are dying to be processed and this afternoon will be the perfect time!

    • Hello Marleen,
      I have never tried this recipe with Greek yogurt. But I think.. yes, Greek yogurt can be substituted for the recipe. Try it out. Write to me.

  • Mallika

    can you use heavy cream that I whipped instead of cream cheese?

    • Hi Mallika,
      You should be good to go with heavy cream for this mango pie recipe. Check the sugar before you leave them to jell in the refrigerator. Please write here if the recipe did not work with whipped heavy cream.

  • Harika

    I tried your recipe and it was a big hit.. thanks!

  • Indrani

    Tempting captures. I have to forget being calorie conscious! 🙂

  • Jayashree

    I have made this a couple of times. I followed the instructions exactly and it came wonderful. Today is my son’s b ‘day and he wanted me to make it again. Thanks for the recipe.

    • Hi Jayashree!
      Thank you so so much for coming back and writing feedback on my Mango Pie recipe. I know… I know… if a dessert is this yummy, who wont like it? Jingalala Family wishes your son a very very Happy Birthday 🙂 Feel free to post the pictures of your Mango pie recipe in GoJingalala’s Facebook Wall and tag the friends who came for the birthday party so that they’ll learn the recipe 🙂

  • Candice

    First and foremost, you are a god-send. Another department at my job had a pot luck and put the leftover food out for everyone else. I took one small piece of this pie, and finally experienced what it must feel like to go to heaven. After a failed scavenger hunt to find who prepared this pie, I just googled “mango pie”, and your recipe came up. I promise this person must have gotten the recipe from you. It tastes exactly like you describe. Plus, we experienced the same sensation at first bite. I’m not a baker at all, but I’ll definitely be trying this recipe, and I’ll let you know how it turns out!

    • Hi Candice,
      🙂 🙂 Very glad to read your comments. Please do try this Mango pie recipe. Forget not to post your Mango pie pictures on GoJingalala’s Facebook Wall. Tag your friends, loved ones and family. Thank you sweety.

  • mridula

    I have tried the recipe and it turned out very good.
    Thanks for the recipe. can you make any other pies using this method?

    • Hi Mridula,
      Thank you for trying out my Mango Pie recipe. I guess you sure can make any other pie like pineapple pie, apple pie, strawberry pie etc in this method. However I haven’t tried them in my kitchen. So if you try it, make it in small quantity and write to me how they turned out., Mridul, will you please take time to post your mango pie pictures on GoJingalala’s Facebook Wall ? Would love to see it. Feel free to tag your family and friends in the mango pie picture.

      • mridula

        thanks meenakshi,

        I havent tried other pies yet… but I will for sure. Unfortunately, I am not in facebook.

        Thanks again,

  • blipton

    Is the process to make Mango pulp difficult? I have a masticating juicer but not sure if that’s what’s needed.

    I’d like to try to make this with a mix of gnox gelatin and agar, since I like that agar makes it more sturdy in hot weather, but I like gnox gelatin for the supposed cartilage building properties!

    • Helo bliton,
      Yes, you can make your own mango pulp with fresh sweet mangoes.
      I haven’t tried this recipe with agar agar. Write to me how your recipe turned out!

  • Ryan David

    What can I substitute with Cream cheese? cream cheese in our place is hard to find and too expensive… any suggestions? I will try to make one for the family night off

    • Hello Ryan,
      I honestly have not tried this mango pie recipe substituting cream cheese. But from what I read over the Internet they say, 1 cup of cream cheese can be replaced with 1/2 cup of yogurt+1/2 cup of ricotta cheese (blended together). Just check if this Mango pie recipe works with his substitution. Try in smaller amounts.

  • Swapna Kulothungan

    I have tried this recipe of yours plenty of times,Just today i got time to message you about this.Every one loved it ….and keep asking me for this recipe.Thanks and credits to you!.

  • Laura McManus

    I just made this pie but when I made the gelatin by the time it was room temperature it did not gel so redid this a second time and still didn’t gel. I mixed it all together anyway and it’s in the fridge. I am not it will come out right. I’m not sure why it didn’t gel. Did anyone else have this problem? I used the knox.

  • Neelima

    tried ur recipe came out well.Thanks

  • Zelda

    I have been looking for a mango pie recipe and found yours. It looks yummy! I am making it today. I don’t have gelatin but I. Do have fruit pectin. Can I substitute that? I will be making a homemade pie crust since I already have Graham crackers in the house. I can’t find my 9 inch pie pans but I do have 2 smaller ones. I may either make 2 small pies or use a 9 inch square cake pan and serve it in squares.

  • Joan

    I made this pie with fresh mangos. The comments I would like to make are: if using a block of cream cheese, make sure you whip the cream cheese until smooth prior to adding your mangos or it will be lumpy. If using the soft spread, it will not lump up. Make sure your cooled gelatin is firm in your pot, not liquidy. This too is important for this recipe to be a success. Very good pie.

    • Jazzy Twix

      Oh gosh! I just put the pie into the fridge and didn’t even read this comment! I made this with fresh mangoes as well.
      My cooled gelatin wasn’t firm, but I still stirred it in! Since I’m only a pre-teen, my family doesn’t trust me THAT WELL to be making good desserts, my mom has the “best baker” title.
      But still here’s to hoping that it will still turn out good!

  • Bina Gupta

    Great recipe ! what I like about it is it is so easy to make !

  • felicia | Dish by Dish

    Hi! I’d love to include this no-bake mango pie in a mango dessert round up I’m preparing for Parade Magazine. If you’re fine with that, could I used one of your pictures with a link back to this original post?

    Thanks in advance!!

    • Hi Felicia.
      Go ahead.
      Yes please include a link to this original recipe.

  • Susanne Saldana

    Ryan, Did you add the half a cup of sugar?

  • Melanie Doyle

    is it possible to use frozen mango chunks from Costco? How would the recipe be altered? Thanks

    • Hello Melanie,
      Seriously I haven’t tried mango pie using frozen mango chunks. May be you can thaw and make a pulp and try the recipe.

  • Aruna Seecharan

    I have substituted the gelatin with 1 teaspoon agar agar powder and it works great.

    • Hi Aruna,
      Thanks for stopping by to write suggestions on this Mango pie recipe… This will sure help our readers who are looking for some substitutions for gelatin ….

  • Princess

    I made this and it was very good. I hate it when folks write reviews after they change ingredients but that seem to be a norm so here goes: I added a touch of almond extract because I happen to love that flavor w/mangoes. That is a personal thing and I am very happy I did that. My mangoes were not tart so I also added a squeeze of fresh lime. That worked out great too! I took the author’s advice and I added sugar, again a personal preference and it was delicious.
    I tried the pie, a taste after a few hours in the fridge and I didn’t like the consistency, BUT after it set overnight in the fridge, it was perfect.
    Since I have already overstepped 🙂 I will add another thing I am going to do next. I LOVE jello and mango is tricky when it comes to getting the jello to set. So my next move will be to add this mixture as a layer to a delicious jello mold. The consistency of the mango mixture is going to be yummy and perfect. That will be a real winner too!

  • Malthi

    I followed your instructions but my pie didn’t form yet (been more than a day). It looks little bit soggy. The only difference is I did not grind it, just mixed with the spoon.

    • Halo Malthi,
      Sorry that it this Mango pie recipe didnt work for you. I doubt in the mixing step only…. the gelatin is the ingredient that sets the pie. So in order to mix the gelatin well with the other ingredients trust on a blender. It will do the job right. Awaiting to hear your comment after trying the recipe again….

  • Hello Usha,
    I used the normal US measuring cup. Not the rice cooker cup. Sure give the recipe a try and let me know how you liked it 🙂

  • Samia

    Made this last evening for an Eid gathering at my home, and my family (all veteran foodies) LOVED IT!! One pie dish got over in half an hour, and thankfully I had made a second lot! Got many requests for this recipe which, aligned with your intention of sharing recipes, I will. Thank you SO MUCH for this delightful dish!

    • Dear Samia,
      Loads of thanks for trying out this Mango pie recipe! Eid wishes to you and your family! 🙂
