Key Lime Pudding ( vegan)

I  came across this sensational vegan recipe for Key Lime "Pie "Dessert on a blog called Wagashi Manic which featured beautiful photos and many vegan desserts.

 I love finding healthy easy desserts that I can make quickly. It doesn't get much faster than this one because the entire 4 ingredient dessert is made in a blender. When finished,  you can just fill the blender with soapy water and blend until clean. 

The recipe is made using avocado, and it  tastes absolutely divine- no avocado taste!
 It took me less than 5 minutes to make it in my blender/ Vitamix from start to finish.

I was extremely pleased with the results. I've made  5 minute rich chocolaty avocado pudding in the blender before.  But I had no idea you could make so many variations of the pudding.

An avocado pudding is a great snack for kids.  Let's face it kids need to eat more nutritious snacks that actually provide vitamins and minerals for their growing bodies. Avocado is a healthy fat. Many doctors are now recommending to eat more  healthy fats  because good fats like Omerga 3's are very important for the health of our brains and bodies.

  6. Have you tried this with actual key limes, or did you just use a regular lime? I've never tried avocado in desserts but between this and your chocolate pudding, I think I'm going to have to start.
    Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friday!

    1. Actually, I tried it with regular limes and it tasted great. I bet it would taste even better with the authentic key limes when they are in season. Let me know if you try it!

    1. Jill,
      It is amazing that a vegetable that is usually used for guacamole could make an equally delicious rich dessert.
