Last week I had a small get-together for a few friends to celebrate one of our friends on his birthday. The celebrant is Diabetic and has high Cholesterol -but he wanted a pie for his birthday. Here is what I came up with -I used three different fresh, tropical fruits. You can even use one or two. Everyone enjoyed it -especially the "birthday boy." You only bake the pie crust. I use the Never-Fail Pie Crust recipe (posted with my recipes). You can use any prepared crust. Use fresh, raw fruit. I am also going to try it with different fruits. I bet some of you have good ideas too!

How To Make fresh tropical fruit no-bake pie

  • 1
    Prepare one cooked 9-inch pie shell using packaged pie crust, or your favorite recipe for crust.
  • 2
    In a 2-quart saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups Apricot Nectar to the boiling point (You could use Guava or any Nectar). Cool to room temperature.
  • 3
    Dissolve: 4 tablespoons Cornstarch in 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice; add 4 tablespoons Splenda (can use Sugar or Honey) and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Add to saucepan with the nectar, and cook until thick and clear (Don’t walk away –it thickens fast.); cool slightly.
  • 4
    Add 2 cups chopped or diced fresh fruit. I used a combination of fresh pineapple, mango and papaya. You could use any combination that you like or just one fruit.
  • 5
    Spoon into baked pie shell. Chill.
  • 6
    Spread 1 cup heavy whipping cream whipped with 4 tablespoons Splenda(Can use Sugar)on top of chilled pie.
  • 7
    Lightly distribute 1/2 cup moist coconut mixed with 1/2 cup chopped nuts over the top (I used peanuts, but I figure depending on the fruit you use, you can use different nuts and with or without the coconut.).

    Enjoy. Please let me know if you make this pie -and also if you use different fruits. I think it would be nice to try different fresh fruits -peaches, oranges, strawberries??? Here is a picture of the pie along with a pound cake he probably shouldn't have had but wanted. Hey, it was his birthday, comes only once a year and I am not his Mama. It was good too. Smile!!
