Blender Vegan Key Lime Pudding

August 13, 2014   9 Comments

I don’t like using my blender because then I have to wash it. It is bulky and takes time to put together and take apart.

Vegan Key Lime Pudding Recipe

Also, while it is a good blender, it is now 13 years old and I keep dreaming of a Vitamix –which costs more than one of my cars did. My friend, Jesse, showed me his gleaming new Vitamix and now I have blender envy.

There is a fellow author, Blender Girl ,who uses her blender quite a bit (and yes, she has a Vitamix). I think Snack Girl and Blender Girl should be pals, don’t you?

She put out a beautiful book, which I finally got my hands on, and it is filled with vegan blender recipes for snacks, meals, desserts, and drinks. Most of the recipes are a little too complicated for me and my very old blender BUT I did find one that was fabulous.

Key Lime Pudding! How good does that sound? And, smart - because you don’t have to make a crust (with the butter and the graham cracker crumbs).

You use avocado (which I didn’t think would work), banana, limes, and lemons and brrrrrwhizzzzchurrrrrr. Done.

I changed her recipe a bit – see the original here: Vegan Key Lime Pudding.

You can use whatever blender you have around, but do not use a food processor because I think that would make a big mess (leakage).

This looks great! I hear you about the Vitamix...I have a $50 Ninja blender & it suits my needs just fine. But if someone offered me a Vitamix for free, I wouldn't turn it down :-) Thank you for offering vegan snacks!

Sounds lovely and I DO own a VitaMix but, alas, bananas make me sick. Like the taste but they literally cause me great gastro distress. Any recommendations for banana subs in the vast number of smoothie recipes that use bananas as a key ingredient? And I have found there a LOT of us folks that are unable to "go bananas"😞

Lisa,

Great recipe! I love making lime and (avocado chocolate pudding) for my grandkids. I'm laughing because I think the blender is so easy to use and clean. I just fill with soapy water and re- blend till its clean. Thanks for all of your wonderful recipes

This sounds delicious.....my friend does one with avocado ,little lemon juice and real cocoa powder for a chocolate pudding.....I want to try the key lime....sounds so good

SG, ave you tried the Magic Bullet? I love mine, so easy to clean and not too big. I make a pina protein shake in it almost everyday, use it for mashed cauliflower, low cal broccoli soup (you can microwave the ingredients in the cup before blending), small batches of pesto and more. I think they should sent you one!

I just bought a Breville Hemisphere Control blender to replace my old Cuisinart Powersmart blender that had died. So far the Breville is great. I make smoothies mostly that include greens (kale, spinach, arugula) as well as fruit, and I wanted something that could handle these items and not cost an arm and a leg like the Vitamix. I was looking at the new Vitamix personal blender as well. In the end, I went with the Breville as it's still half the price of the Vitamix. it's powerful enough for my needs - I hope it lasts a long time!

I use my ancient Cuisineart Mini Prep for messy wet things, like fresh salsa and it rarely leaks. I also have a $20 person blender - - something Basics, purchased on Amazon and it is fab tool. I have one home and at work, so i am always able to whip up a smoothy. Love your posts.

Oh Sweetie -- once you have a Vitamix, your life (and meals) will never be the same ;-)

Lisa….besides a vitamix being amazing in ALL its tasks..the BEST part is the clean-up!!!! I don't take it apart

I rinse it with hot water then add about a cup or so of really hot water and a drop of dish washing liquid and turn it on…it totally cleans itself…rinse well…your DONE!!!! It is also a work horse I have had mine for over 10 years, used a couple times a week! I feel I have well gotten my moneys worth!!! Just sayin'
