Secret Ingredient Lime Pudding

So, I made this AMAZING pudding the other day. Then I wanted to get some decent pictures of it.

I figured AMAZING melt in your mouth creamy pudding deserved at the very least well lit photos. Hard to do with a poor camera when you have little natural light in your house.

I ended up heading outside in half pajamas/half regular clothes (that DID NOT match)… in the freezing cold weather… armed with a the pudding, a spoon, limes, and fabric. None of them turned out. I am sure my neighbors thought I was crazy but little do they know. That pudding I tried so hard to photograph, was made out of avocados. 

I will not even show you the photos that I tried to take, but above is the photo that proves this has good kid appeal. Either that or it is a gigantic bowl of pudding and those are my finger marks, not my 18 mo daughter’s. You’ll never know.

Truly this pudding is as delicious as they come, tasting like a bowl full of creamy lime pie. The bright green color is so fun- especially if you do not use food dyes but want all things lime to be GREEN. But the best thing is how easy it is to make, and though not low in sugar it is quite healthy compared to most puddings.

You will need:

  • Avocados

And for every avocado you use you will need:

  • The juice of one lime (Yes, a WHOLE lime per avocado)
  • Sweetener- Sucanat*, honey, maple syrup, or regular white sugar* in the tune of about 2 t – 1 T per avocado
  • A splash of vanilla
  • A tiny tiny tiny amount of salt

*If using granulated sugar you will need to let it sit for a few minutes to dissolve. I would suggest powdering the sugar if you are using sucanat.

For Mark and me to have this for dessert (and it really is good enough) I would use 3-4 avocados. As a breakfast for the kids and me, I used 6.

To make it:
Put the flesh of your avocados, with the other ingredients in your food processor and blend until nice and smooth and creamy.

Finally: Eat. Preferably with a spoon, but as shown above spoons ARE optional.

Have a lovely day!
