Description Edit

This fresh, sour dessert-based pie is made with real fruit juice, tofu, and lime rind in a pastry shell and keeps a divine aroma with the vanilla content. Cottage cheese occasionally replaces the cream cheese and works for this, too.

Ingredients Edit

  • 1 (12.3 ounces) package tofu
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • ½ cup key lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons freshly grated lime rind
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 (4 ounces) packages vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 tablespoon liquid sweetener, to taste
  • 1 x 9 inch baked pastry shell or (1 9-inch graham cracker crust)

Directions Edit

  1. Drain any excess water from the tofu.
  2. Blend tofu, vanilla extract, and lime juice in a processor or blender until creamy and smooth.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients except crust and blend again until smooth.
  4. At this point, transfer the mixture to a bowl and beat on high speed with an electric mixer.
  5. Pour the mixture into the crust and chill 2-3 hours or until firm.
  6. This sets up very firm. It also makes a great pudding or little tartlet filling for fancy desserts. Serve cold and plain or with other desserts.
