Great Key Lime Pie (Vegan, but You'd Never Guess It!)

Great Key Lime Pie (Vegan, but You'd Never Guess It!) created by Kree6528

This pie is so rich and decadent it almost tastes more like a key lime cheesecake! I made it for a Caribbean-themed party without telling what was in it and everyone raved about it! I'm not even a vegan and I plan on making this one frequently. I got the recipe from VegWeb.

ingredients

directions

  • Drain any excess water from the tofu.
  • Blend tofu and lime juice in a processor or blender until creamy and smooth.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (except crust!), and blend again until smooth.
  • At this point, I had to transfer the mixture to a bowl and beat on high speed with an electric mixer, since it was too thick and stiff for my blender.
  • Pour the mixture into the crust and chill 2-3 hours or until firm.
  • This sets up very firm.
  • It also makes a great pudding or little tartlet filling for fancy desserts!
  • Note for those who try with other pudding mixes. Make sure your mix is Vegan. Commercial mixes can contain meat by products making them not Vegan or Vegetarian.

    We made this and it was fantastic! What I like most is the low sat fat aspect - less than 3 grams per 1/8 of 9" pie! Awesome recipe - I can't tell the difference from full fat key lime pie! This is so much healthier for most as well. We'll make it again and again....

    The flavor of this is terrific, even though I didn't have the grated lime peel. It didn't firm up as much as I expected, but not one cared because it was so delicious. I wonder how it would be to freeze it. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Mine did not firm up very well and would have been better served as a parfait in individual glasses. Having said that, I am certain this is the same key lime pie that I enjoy at a local vegan restaurant. I made my own crust (blended 2 cups of granola with 2 TSP sugar and mixed with 4 TSP melted vegan butter. Voila!) The taste was good, but I'm not sure it is worth ALL that sugar (see the sugar content in the Mori-Nu pudding mix alone).

    I liked the key lime pie so much that I made a variation. It is mango cream pie. I used mango juice in place of the key lime juice. I also put cubed mango in. It seemed like more than 1 cup. I forgot to put in the vegan cream cheese and it still tasted nice. I left out the sweetner. Everything else was the same. It was just as great as the key lime!
