Prepare the curd by adding the mango puree, sugar, eggs, and cornstarch to the base of a food processor; pulse mixture a few times until completely smooth & blended then pour it into a medium saucepan.
Heat pan over low heat and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until mixture becomes thickened like sour cream or for about 10 minutes.
Remove curd from the heat; immediately pour through a mesh strainer into a heat proof bowl, using the spoon to push mixture through and remove any lumps.
Stir in the orange, lemon and lime zests and the butter, adding a piece at a time until completely blended.
Cover the bowl with a piece of plastic wrap, smoothing it on the surface of the curd to keep a skin from forming then refrigerate the curd for at least two hours or until cold.
Preheat oven to 375F. degrees.
To a food processor, add the toasted coconut, oats, ¼ cup flour and brown sugar; pulse mixture a couple of times then add the butter, a piece at a time until all is incorporated.
Turn dough out on a surface and quickly knead just until it all comes together; form into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Dust surface with reserved flour and roll out dough to fit the sides and bottom of a 9 inch tart dish.
Prick the bottom of tart dough with a fork and place into the freezer for 10 minutes. Place the tart dish on a baking sheet and put in oven for 15-20 minutes or until shell is golden brown. Remove from oven and cool completely on a baking rack. Make the raspberry sauce by adding raspberries, sugar, and water to a small saucepan; bring to a low simmer and cook berries for 10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the lime zest and remove from heat to cool. Refrigerate sauce until ready to use.
To assemble the tart, spoon mango curd into prepared shell, smoothing top. Chill two hours or overnight. Serve individual slices of mango tart with raspberry sauce; garnish top with whipped cream, if desired. Serves 12.
