I think you will agree with me that our Carabao Mango is one of the tastiest fruits we have. Mangoes happen to be my favorite fruit that I often experiment recipes that contain mangoes. An example of which is the Mango Banana Shortcake.
I first came across this mango pie recipe when my neighbor gave it to me as a gift. The taste is just divine. What makes it even more divine is that my neighbor’s name is Divine. One doesn’t need a mixer for this recipe. A good old food blender will do.
