Health authorities get a few things right about exercise, and a few things wrong, in my not-so-humble opinion. And the opinions of a few critics whom I have paid close attention to. The Mayo Clinic reports that you should have"at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity a […]
This Vegan Key Lime Mousse is tasty enough to serve to everybody and fits many different special dietary needs. It's a wonderful dish to serve at parties because it's dairy free, sugar free, gluten free, vegan and more!
When I was a child growing up in New Jersey, we'd spend our winter holidays in the Florida Keys. I fell in love with the things key lime flavored like key lime dish , key lime ice cream, key lime sauce, key lime slushies, key lime candy -- you name it!
I particularly love key lime pie. However, I am unable to deal with the sweetened condensed milk in the majority of key lime pie recipes. It gives me the worse stomach ache ever!
My solution was to create a key lime mousse made with tofu. It has all of the great taste and creaminess of key lime pie with no dairy!
It's super easy to make because you combine all the ingredients in your blender just like you would a smoothie. Then you pour the dairy free mousse into bowls, chill and serve. Easy!
Best of all, this is a 100% vegan mousse -- no milk, no honey, no eggs!
This is a wonderful dessert to serve at a Mother's Day brunch, especially if your mother her sugar intake. That is because I use a powdered monk fruit sweetener instead of sugar.
My favorite brand is Monk Fruit from the Raw. (You can use powdered sugar if you don't mind the calories.)
As there's no pie crust to worry about, it's gluten free, too. But this Vegan Key Lime Mousse creates a terrific pie filling. To keep it gluten free, I like using Mi-Del Gluten Free Pie Crusts. These are not vegan however.
The key lime mousse 15 minutes to make, but you have to let it cool and set up for an hour or so in the refrigerator.
This sugar free mousse can quickly be made for a dinner party if you keep the ingredients on hand, since they keep in the fridge for months at a time.
But don't tell anyone at the brunch that the dessert is made of tofu, unless they have a food allergy of some sort and need to know the ingredients. That's because some people think tofu is yuck and will not eat it.
My children thought the key lime mousse was created with it was yogurt and said it was delicious and just produced"yuck faces" after I let the tofu cat out of the bag.

DON'T substitute regular lime juice to it. Your results will not be exactly the same.

I served the vegan mousse at my husband's"Tofu vs. Bacon" work celebration . It came in second place with several accolades.
Since limes can be pricey, after zesting and using the limes as garnish, cut the skillet up to use in cocktails, seltzer or ice water. Or squeeze the limes over fish or chicken dishes. Don't let them go to waste!

All you need to do to enter to win $500 worth of keto pantry products
PLUS! You’ll also get:

The Keto Diet Cookbook is a comprehensive roadmap to preparing keto foods according to your hunger level without having to rely on macro counting or calorie tracking, complete with 141 recipes created from whole foods and ZERO fancy ingredients.
Plus, each and every recipe is a whole meal with balanced keto macros.
The thing that frustrates me the most about my favorite cookbooks? Recipes aren't complete. It'll tell me the way to make a roast, but not what to serve with the roast. So, I am using at least a minimum of two recipes for any given meal.
When I asked you how you felt about this, a whole lot of you said it annoyed you, also.
Thus, in my upcoming paperback, all the 140+ recipes are complete meals. That means it is possible to create a meal for yourself/your household and have everything in 1 recipe to create it.
You know when you are planning your meals for the week and you are totally stumped on...
- How to make it all work with your health goals
- which recipes to choose to support your weight loss goal
- how to make it work with your families needs
- the best way to stay on plan
- how to keep to a budget…
Planning is essential to keto success, but it can be tough to determine which recipe goes where and feel confident in the way you are feeding yourself.
This is the reason The Keto Diet Cookbook has a convenient Meal Planning System that guides you through all the recipes and makes it SIMPLE to develop your weekly meal programs in under 5 minutes.
The Keto Diet Meal Planning System provides readers with 3 templates to follow based on their meal planning needs. In one of the templates, you are guided through determining how much food to eat based on your objectives, you are provided a meal planning combination to follow, and then all the recipes in the book can plug into your distinctive combination.Pre-order Your Copy & Enter to Win
This is a special feature which makes each and every one of the recipes in the book useable!
For serious. 5 minute meal plan + grocery list, BOOM!
SO many of you have asked me to do another book focused on wholesome un-fancy recipes:
- The way I cook at home when I am in a hurry
- using common items
- using readily accessible ingredients
- with limited ingredients in each recipe
- made in under 30 minutes
I’m super stoked with this book and can not wait for you to see it in real life. If you decide to pre-order, don't forget to visit this page to add your name to the $500 keto pantry bundle giveaway.
