Vegan Lemon Pudding with Berries

Vegan Lemon Pudding with Berries

I was so pleased with this delicious vegan lemon pudding! It is surprisingly good, creamy and flavorful. I had some blueberries and strawberries that needed to be eaten as they were getting a little old.

So I decided to go over my newsletters on my email box to see if anything I could make, and I came across this recipe from VegNews. It looked delicious and pretty easy, and I had all the ingredients , so I gave it try.

The original recipe calls for blackberries, and I will definitely make it again with some blackberries. I bet it will also be fantastic with pears!

This vegan lemon pudding with berries is so rich and decadent!

One thing that I noticed is that when I used my food processor the consistency and texture were not as creamy as when I blend it using my Vitamix.

I also had to add about 1/4 cup of water because the cream was too thick and my blender, even on high speed, was struggling. The cream started to get really warm, and I wanted this pudding to be raw. I like the thicker consistency better though, so next time I will add a pinch of xantham gum, or blend it in small batches.
