Key Lime Pie Pudding

The zesty and refreshing flavor of key lime pie in a jar of raw vegan deliciousness? Oh yes, we made that happen for you because we like to enjoy the sweeter things in life. Even though we love to indulge in sweet flavors, we are tart at heart. This raw vegan, homemade pudding gives off tangy notes that will entice your taste buds bite after bite.

Unlike a traditional key lime pie, this recipe calls for both lemon juice and lime juice, in addition the zest of both citrus fruits. One quick tip about zesting is that you don’t want to run the lime or lemon back and forth across a microplane. Start at one end of the fruit and pull the microplane across to the other end. Continue doing this until you zest all the way around, and then you can juice the fruit. Ideally, you don’t want to get a lot of the pith in you recipe, otherwise it will be especially tart.

Even though this recipe calls for the zest and juice of lemons and limes, it won’t be overpowering. The creamy banana and avocado help to mellow the intensity of the citrus. Plus, the grade A maple syrup also contributes to a sweeter flavor profile. If you need to add a little more maple syrup, you can do so until the pudding is sweet enough for your liking.
