Mango/Blackberry Cream Pie

I made this strawberry cream pie a few weeks ago and it was delicious, but we decided a mango one would be great too.  

So I changed the recipe a little to go with the tartness.  

1 baked pie crust, cooled ( I LOVE Paula Deen's recipe. )
1 cup heavy whipping cream
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1-2 fresh mango cut into strips or a can of mango puree
Optional toppings:  strawberries, raspberries, or your favorite jam

Beat the cream cheese until malleable.  Add the cream and whip together.  Add the yogurt when the cream starts thickening.  When the mixture forms peaks add the powdered sugar and vanilla.  

Place this mixture in the cooled pie crust and place any desired fruit on top or glaze with mango puree or jam.  

Store in the fridge until ready to serve. 

We had fun trying lots of different toppings.  We liked them all.
