Impossible Dragonfruit Pie

A crustless pie that comes together simply in a food processor or blender. This impossible dragonfruit pie is a great easy dessert!



     This crustless dragonfruit pie is impossibly easy to make. You can do it all right in a blender or food processor. It's a simple dessert that is so fun to make.




      When you find yourself with three beautiful dragonfruit, you should consider yourself quite lucky. The problem is deciding what to do.

     The first dragonfruit from my box of delicious fruit from Melissa's Produce quickly became dragonfruit buttercream. The second was enjoyed plain as part of our freaky fruit tasting.



     I wanted to do something fun and different with the third. There were some great recipes for ice cream and smoothies etc. On Pinterest but I wanted to do something a bit off the beaten path.

     How about dragonfruit pie? Why not! It was tempting to do something along the lines of my cream cheese and kiwi pie because the texture of dragonfruit reminded me so much of kiwi.



     My husband loves that kiwi pie, but basing the new recipe on one I've already done isn't exactly groundbreaking.

     Maybe making it into an impossible pie isn't either, but I've never seen it done before. (If there is a cult following that already exists for impossible dragonfruit pie, I'd like to join the masses. I didn't search too hard because I wanted to do it my way!)



      Impossible pies are so easy to make. You just load the ingredients into a blender or food processor, give them a whir and bake what you get.

     There's no pie crust pastry to get right, no embellishments to worry about either. It's just simple, straightforward and good.

      I put my attempt at a dragonfruit pie into the oven and hoped for the best. We were very happy with the results!



      It held together well to be served in slices but was still soft and supple. We enjoyed ours with blackberry sauce but it would have also been lovely with blood orange curd.

     Unfortunately our batch of blood orange curd was long gone already. After filling a cake and swirling it in plenty of yogurt, it didn't stay around long!

  2. I actually remember these impossible pies. My mother used to make them. She loved making pies when it didn't involve using a crust. This looks wonderful

    1. The crust is the hardest part, so going without makes it super easy!
