Fresh Mango Lime Pie Recipe

Tired of overly sweet fruit pies? Then try this sweet and tangy mango lime pie! I discovered mango pie when I over bought mangoes and had several mangoes getting very ripe on my kitchen counter. I love it when I make delicious mistakes like that.

Everyone in my family loves mangoes…except me. So when I saw them on sale for 4 for $1 I loaded up – a little too much apparently. I thought that if they didn’t all get eaten fresh I would freeze them for smoothies. As I was cutting them up to freeze, I changed my mind and decided to make pie instead.

There seems to be two kinds of traditional mango pies – one is like the one I made but without the lime and the other is blended and mixed with cream, more like a custard type pie. But there is no dispute about the mangoes – you need really ripe and flavorful mangoes to make a great mango pie.

This pie was super easy to put together. I used my no-fail, flaky pie crust recipe. If you need to up your pie crust making skills, you should click over and read the tips for making really great pie crust. This pie crust is pliable and easy to work with and it can be frozen to use later.

To make the pie I peeled and chopped the mango. Then I mixed the mango chunks with sugar and decided it was going to be too sweet. So I pulled out our favorite fruit topping – limes – and add the juice from two limes to the mixture.


To thicken it up I added arrowroot to mix and mixed well. It would have been better if I had mixed the arrowroot and lime juice together and then poured that into the mango and sugar mixture, so that’s what’s in the printable instructions below.

I made this pie today and was very pleased. I found your recipe about 1 1/2 weeks ago and it captured my imagination. A mango pie made like a peach pie... My son and I spotted some mangoes at Costco and thought we would give it a try We like the honey mangoes because of their incredibly small pits and large amount of flesh. They also have a spicy scent and smell to them. My son thought I had put some cinnamon into the pie filling but I followed yours exactly to the measuring of the fruit. This pie is now going to be in my rotation. I almost tried your pie crust recipe but in the end stuck with the one I have been using for 50 years. Really the lime and mango combination here cannot be beat. Thank you for the recipe and the inspiration.

I'm so glad you like the pie! I'll have to try to find some honey mangos and make it again. No need to try my pie crust if you already have one you know and love. I'm a huge proponent of not changing things that already work. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment.
