Raw Mango Strawberry Pie

Makes one 8- or 9-inch (20 or 23 cm) pie, enough for 8 servings

This raw pie will dazzle your family and friends. Including the optional coconut oil or guar gum will help the slices of pie maintain a firmer edge when cut. However, this filling is also superb with mango alone.

1 recipe Almond, Date, and Coconut Pie Crust
1 cup (250 mL) dried mango, soaked in water for 10 minutes
3 cups (750 mL) chopped fresh mango, about 2 mangos
2 tablespoons (30 mL) melted virgin coconut oil or 2 teaspoons (10 mL) guar gum (optional)
1 cup (250 mL) sliced strawberries, for garnish
Prepare the pie crust and set aside.

Drain the soaked dried mango well, then press it in a small sieve or with your hands to remove excess liquid. (Save the liquid for smoothies). Place the dried mango, fresh mango, and coconut oil in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Spread the filling on the pie crust. Top with sliced strawberries. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours to set. Serve this pie chilled so that the slices retain their shape.
