Raw Vegan Avocado Lemon Pudding

Leave a comment

As much as I love chocolate, I’ve always had a place in my heart for lemon desserts.  There is something so refreshing about a lemon sorbet, a lemon merengue pie or a lemon square.  Unfortunately, a lot of these desserts are on my do-not-eat list since they generally contain copious amounts of white sugar and butter and gluten!

A couple of nights ago I decided I was in the mood for a lemony treat and whipped up something that turned out amazing.  It was rich, creamy, tart and also healthy.  I made a lemon pudding and its base was avocado.  Avocados truly are super foods – they are a good source of vitamin K, dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin C,  and copper.  They can help lower your cholesterol and your blood pressure.   Plus – they taste delicious!  I am quite sad that we are out of both avocados and lemons because I’d really like to eat this right now!  Must buy some tomorrow.

Recipe – Raw Vegan Avocado Lemon Pudding (gluten free, soy free)

Makes 1 large serving, or two medium sized servings.

Ingredients

1 large avocado

Juice of 1 lemon

Zest of one lemon

2-3 tbsp agave

2 medjool dates

2 ice cubes

Method

Place items in high speed blender.  Blend on high speed until smooth.  Enjoy! (Note – this was quite tart – if you like your lemon desserts sweeter, just add more agave.)
