SWEET TOOTH SATURDAYS- VEGAN KEY LIME PIE

Hey folks,


Welcome to Sweet Tooth Saturday!  I was sitting here watching the Food Network and they are talking key lime pie, so I was moved to search vegweb for a vegan version.  The following received great reviews..check it out!




Great Key Lime Pie






INGREDIENTS (use vegan versions):

    1 (12 ounce) package silken firm tofu (I use Mori-Nu), drained
    1/2 cup key lime juice (I use Floribbean brand)
    8 ounces vegan cream cheese    
    2 teaspoons grated lime zest
    2 (3 3/4 ounce) packages vanilla pudding mix (I use Mori-Nu Mates)
    1 tablespoon liquid sweetener 
    1 9" pastry or graham pie crust





DIRECTIONS:

Blend tofu and lime juice in a processor (may be too stiff for your blender) until     creamy and smooth.  

Add the rest of the filling ingredients, and blend again until smooth.  


Pour the mixture into the crust and chill 2-3 hours or until firm.

Sets up very firm.  Makes a great pudding or little tartlet filling for fancy desserts.
