This is a vegetarian key lime pie recipe. Trust me everyone likes this.
2 Packages Mori Nu silken tofu 2 packages sugar free vanilla pudding 1/2 to 3/4 key lime juice or lemon juice.
Put both packs of tofu into blender, blend until smooth. Next, add sugar free vanilla pudding, blend some more. Lastly, add key lime juice, start out with the smallest amount and adjust to your taste. You can sometimes find instant lemon pudding, which a great citrus base for the lime juice. This is full of protein, very low carbs, and low in fat. If you wish you can layer this like a parfait. Just crush graham crackers and sprinkle in between the layers. If you try this recipe let me know how it turned out.
I'm making my dad a key lime pie (his favorite) for his birthday. The recipe I think I'm going to go with is: 4 egg yolks, beaten 2 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 cup key lime juice 1 (9 inch) prepared graham cracker crust
but the sweetened condensed milk puts it at almost 40g of carbs at 10 servings. If I can use liquid sweetener to make my own, it drops it down to around 17g. After looking at the recipe, the crust has around 13g of carbs, looks like I'll need to modify that too :)
I was looking today for a recipe and it called for sweetened condensed milk so, being moderately low carb, I went looking for ways to modify the recipe. The most common recipe I found for homemade sweetened condensed milk is one cup evaporated milk and 1.25 cup sugar. I was just wondering if instead of using sugar, using a liquid sweetener would work the same. Seems like it would work, I would just need to cook it longer to get the water from the sweetener out on top of the water in the milk. I might try it out in the next couple weeks to see, does anybody have any experience with this? Thanks :)
