View Full Version : Lemons everwhere and I'm craving pudding!!!
10-10-2005, 12:46 PM
I tryed to get this through but I guess it didn't post to the forum.
Anyway, I am CRAVING lemon pudding.
Does anyone have a recipe that does not include an avocado?
I have a love affair with them and want to try and cut back.
I use to make a cooked version of lemon pudding but I need to make it raw.
Please help me if you can.

Ann, honey, I'll try to find something for you but (and I understand you feeling the need to cut back on avocados) I'd rather see you go ahead and make a lemon pudding USING avocados than to end up making or eating a cooked version due to your high craving for it!
But will see if I can come up with anything from my resources!

Okay, most recipes I found for making pudding or custard-type pie fillings that don't call for avocados ask for either psyllium husk, agar-agar or ground flax seeds, and young coconut meat.
So those are options for things to make it thicker and more pudding-like. Can you post your recipe for the cooked version you used to make and maybe we can help you convert it over to raw?

Try several ripe bananas with a lot of lemon. Make sure you use the zest. Maybe freeze some bananas too, and cut them all up in the food processor. If you have a young coconut, throw in the flesh of that too. It will be so good!
You can also do a lemon frosting...take a cup of dates and 2-3 lemons, juice and zest. Buzz it around in the food processor until it's all whipped up and creamy. This one will be very sweet and rich.
I envy you - I just got some lemons and they weren't cheap!

This is the one I could find:
Easy Lemon Pudding
1lb silken tofu
3/4 to 1 tps lemon rind
1/2 c. sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
Put this is a food processor and blend until smooth, then eat.
This was one when I was eating tofu that I loved but now that I don't eat tofu anymore I won't make it.
I just want to eat as raw as possible and not feel deprived, I hope that doesn't sound selfish, sorry if it does.
Thanks for the suggestions and I will try the frozen bananas.

Oh yeah, that's easy! You can do the bananas in place of the silken tofu as Sharon suggested or young coconut meat or both! Sugar can be replaced with date paste or agave nectar or (if you use it) honey.
The rest you can use as-is!

I appreciate her recipe and I will try it. I will let you both know how it turns out. Thanks for answering my prayers, you have no idea how much I love "Lemon Pudding".

I tried the recipe, thanks for the help.
It turned out okay. It didn't taste like lemon pudding but it helped the craving.
I appreciate your help.

I appreciate the help on how to make lemon pudding. If anyone else out there has any more ideas please let me know.
I am open to all suggestions.

Renee Underkoeffler has a recipe for lemon creme I think. I don't have the book with me but I think it was mainly lemons, cashews, lemon zest, vanilla and agave. So basically, cashews would substitute the tofu in your recipe.

Here's another idea: juice tart apples and pears and lemons. Add a little agave and some lemon zest and freeze in popsicle molds. Or freeze in a rectangular pan. When the pan of juice is frozen, grate it out with a fork to make lemon granitas.
This wouldn't be creamy, but more like a sherbert.

I found a recipe for key lime pudding at http://fresh-network.com. Since it asks for both coconut meat and coconut butter as well as nuts, maybe it will be thicker?
key lime pudding
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1/4 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp water
1 tsp key lime juice
1/4 tsp salt
1 drop liquid stevia (optional)
1 cup coconut meat
2 tbsp coconut butter
in vitamix, blend nuts, milk, water and juice. add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. chill at least 1 hour before serving to thicken.

I will try this recipe tonight, thanks so much. I just know that it will be great!
Oh, take me home to the old familiar taste, with a new twist.
RAW RAW RAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
