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.
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).
