Lemon Pudding (Dairy Free & Refined Sugar Free)

lemon pudding, dairy free, sugar free, gluten free

 You know me, I can’t make a lime recipe without trying a lemon version of it too! And dare I say this pudding is better than the lime pudding. Or perhaps, I just love lemons a little more deep down.

The whole pudding idea came into my head as I have been trying to think of creative snacks to feed my kids in between school and activities. My daughter starts Kindergarten in just a few short weeks. And although she will only go to school half-days in the afternoon, I know she will come home “starving” as she puts it. Having a snack ready ahead of time (or one I can whip up in a few minutes), will make life a lot easier on all of us.

This pudding is jam packed with healthy fats, good for growing brains and balancing glucose levels. It also contains a large amount of Vitamin C from antioxidants in the lemons. I have to admit I had leftovers of this pudding from last night and I ate it for breakfast. Yep, it was THAT good.

  11. Would the avocado make this turn brown if it sits out for a couple hours? I’m looking for a nondairy pudding to fill a gf coconut tart for a dinner event.

    • @Trailmix Hello! I wouldn’t leave it sitting out if you want to make it a few hours ahead of time. I would try adding a tiny bit of lemon juice on top and putting it in the fridge to chill until you are ready to eat and serve.

      • @GFPantry  @Trailmix Hmm… doubtful I’ll have access to refrigeration. That won’t stop me from trying this at home though! Thanks for the recipe.

  12. Sounds delicious! I love the avocado/coconut combination. Two of my favorites! I will definitely be giving this a try. Maybe today. Thanks.

  13. I do love puddings! This is a must try!
