This week, I made my own version of a key lime pie inspired pudding. Why, you ask? Okay, maybe you didn’t. But the origins of this kitchen experiment deserve retelling.
Last month, I was telling Eric about a recipe I’d created for a quinoa bowl.
“A quinoa bowl.”
“No, a quinoa . . . bowl.”
Needless to say, I teased him mercilessly about ‘key wobble’ for the rest of the day. But then I started thinking. What would a Key Wobble recipe look like? It would probably have some lime, and something to make it wobble. I picked up some lime juice and some gelatin, and got crafting.
Introducing, just in time for St. Patrick’s Day:
Coconut Key Lime Pudding
- 1 can Arayuma Organic Coconut Milk
- 3 Tbsp Sicilia Lime Juice
- 2 Tbsp agave nectar
- 2 tsp GoBio Organic Gelatin
- Optional: 1 tsp matcha powder or a pinch of spirulina/chlorella for colour
- Garnish: sprinkling of shredded coconut
In a saucepan, mix together coconut milk, lime juice, and agave. If adding matcha powder or spirulina/chlorella, whisk it in until all the lumps are gone. Sprinkle the gelatin in a thin layer on the surface of the mixture. Heat at medium low. As it warms, whisk the gelatin into the mixture until you’re confident all lumps have dissolved (approx 3 minutes).
Pour into individual containers (ramekins, or teacups like I used), and let sit in the fridge. Once it has chilled for an hour, it’s ready to eat! Garnish with shredded coconut and serve.
This recipe will have a pudding-like texture, quite smooth and creamy. If you’d like a bit more “wobble”, however, use a full Tbsp of the gelatin.
St. Patrick’s Day
Let’s face it – the most “St. Patrick’s Day” element of this dessert is that it’s green. If you want to make a more Shamrock Shake-esque pudding, take out the lime juice, and add in 1/2 tsp of Simply Organic peppermint extract and 2 Tbsp of water. Adopt a terrible Irish accent, and serve to your guests with pride!
