Key Lime Pudding

water pitcher lime

In search of ways to use powdered milk, I stumbled upon and then manipulated this recipe. While, it is not particularly low fat nor low sugar, it is an easy, refreshing and tasty recipe.  If you are craving that creamy key lime pie zip, try this without the crust and stay one step ahead of the dessert train.


1 cup  water

2 cup evaporated cane sugar

4 Tablespoons butter

2 cups powdered milk

2 eggs

1 cup lime juice

1 Tablespoon lime zest



Boil water, sugar and butter together. Let cool 15 minutes. Pour into a blender. Gradually add the powdered milk a very little at a time and blend until smooth. Let cool for 15-30 minutes in blender.


Add the eggs and blend 2 minutes. Finally, add the lime juice and blend 2 more minutes. Pour into a pie plate and bake at 325 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Serve warm or chilled with skim milk powder whipped topping.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!

    Where do you buy the evaporated cane sugar for the Key Lime pudding recipe. Could you let me know. Thanks.

      You bet! Loblaws has an Organics brand granulated evaporated cane sugar in wide distribution but I prefer to buy it in Asian or Indian markets. Sometime it comes granulated but often it comes in a hunk that can be whizzed in the blender or grated as needed.
