 Frozen Mango Coconut Mousse with Nutty Crust

FOR MOUSSE:
4 Fresh Very Ripe Mangoes in Chunks and Frozen
¾-1 c. Coconut Milk Chilled
1 Fresh Mango – Peeled and Cubed (for inside pie)

FOR CRUST:
1 c. Almonds Soaked for 1 hour (remove skin)
½ c. Hazelnuts Soaked for 1 hour (remove as much skin as possible)
2 tbls. Raw honey
2 tbls. Maple Syrup
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
¼ c. Pecans
¾ c. raw shredded coconut

FOR DECORATION:
1 Fresh Mango – Peeled and Sliced for Decoration

In food processor puree mangoes and slowly start adding coconut milk to blend.  You could use an ice cream maker if available.  Continue blending and adding coconut milk for a very smooth and fluffy consistency.  This will take 10-15 minutes.  Put in bowl and freeze while you prepare crust.

In food processor mix almonds and hazelnuts until fine and slowly add honey and maple syrup.  You want the mixture to hold shape slightly.  Add the spices.  After the mixture is finely blended add the pecans and blend briefly…they will be blended but just to the point of fine.  Then add the coconut just until blended.

Lightly oil a pie plate.  Press the crust on the bottom and edges.  The crust will be medium thick.  If you have extra crust you can use it for decorating the top or for mousse parfaits with any extra of the mango mixture.  Put the pie crust in the freezer for 10 minutes or so.

Remove the mouse from the freezer and blend another few minutes in the processor.

Remove the crust from the freezer, pour have the mousse in the crust.  Layer with the cubed mango.  Pour remaining mousse over mango and smooth out with spatula.  Freeze uncovered until frozen.  Then you can cover with plastic or aluminum foil.  Freeze for 2 hours or overnight.  Decorate with mango slices before serving.  Allow to soften slightly, slice and serve.
