The Crispy Crust

What’s an ice cream pie without a delectable crust? This Double Berry-Mango Ice Cream Pie features a crispy graham cracker crust that adds a wonderful texture to each bite. The buttery and slightly sweet crust provides a perfect foundation for the creamy ice cream and juicy berries. It’s like the icing on the cake, or in this case, the crust on the pie!

How to Make It

Creating this delicious ice cream pie is easier than you might think. You’ll start by making the graham cracker crust, which involves crushing graham crackers and mixing them with melted butter and a touch of sugar. This mixture is then pressed into a pie dish and baked until golden and crisp.

Next comes the star of the show – the double berry-mango ice cream filling. You’ll need to prepare a luscious mango ice cream base by blending ripe mangoes, cream, sugar, and a hint of vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Once the ice cream base is ready, you’ll fold in fresh strawberries and blueberries to create a swirl of colorful goodness.

Pour the ice cream mixture onto the cooled graham cracker crust and smooth out the top with a spatula. Pop the pie into the freezer and let it freeze for a few hours until firm. Once it’s fully frozen, you can garnish it with extra berries or a drizzle of chocolate sauce for an extra touch of decadence.

The Perfect Summer Dessert

This Double Berry-Mango Ice Cream Pie is the perfect dessert to cool you down on a hot summer day. Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or simply want to treat yourself to something delicious, this pie will impress your taste buds and leave you feeling refreshed.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 pints of softened mango sorbet , divided
  • 1 (9 inch) chocolate cookie crumb crust
  • ½ package (16 ounces) of frozen sliced strawberries in syrup
  • 1 pint of softened strawberry ice cream
  • 1 small fresh orange
  • ¼ cup of fresh raspberries , or more if desired
  • ¼ cup of sliced fresh strawberries , or more if desired
  • 1 tablespoon of multicolored candy sprinkles , or to taste
  • 3 sprigs of fresh mint , or more if desired

Instructions
 

  • Place 1 pint of mango sorbet into the cookie crust and let it soften slightly while you prepare the berry filling.
  • Slice the frozen berries in syrup into thin slices. Take half of the slices and mix them in a bowl using a handheld mixer until well broken up. Add the remaining frozen berries and mix briefly until combined but still chunky. Mix this with the strawberry ice cream.
  • Spread the softened sorbet over the bottom of the crust. Top it with the berry-strawberry ice cream mixture. Scoop on the remaining pint of mango sorbet, spreading it to the edges of the pie and swirling the top decoratively. Cover the pie and freeze it for 6 hours (or up to 1 week).
  • Using a citrus peel stripper, cut long strips of orange peel by pressing firmly against the orange and turning the fruit slowly. Pin one end of each strip to a drinking straw using a straight pin. Wind the strip tightly around the straw and fasten the other end with another pin. Place the straws in a shallow container, cover with water and ice cubes, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or up to 3 days).
  • Remove the pie from the freezer 30 minutes before serving. Take the orange peels out of the refrigerator, drain them, and pat them dry. Unpin the curls and discard the pins, then slide the curls off the straws.
  • To serve, arrange the orange
