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.
Add to Vitamix or Blender:
1 medium size avocado
1/2 can of coconut milk (see notes below)
1/2 cup unsweetened, coconut flakes
Pulp of 2 organic lemons and the juice squeezed out (discard rinds and seeds)
4 Tbsp. lemon juice (in addition to the 2 lemons and their juice)
4 Tbsp. raw honey
1/4 tsp. NuNaturals lemon stevia
*I used Thai Kitchen Coconut Milk for this recipe and only the top 1/2 of the can which is mostly coconut cream)*
Blend on high for 2 minutes. Place container in the refrigerator for 1 hour to chill. Serve and enjoy!
Optional-Top with coconut flakes and lemon slices on top.
