#Dairyfree Key Lime Meringue Bliss for #SundaySupper

Are you ready for another exciting #SundaySupper? Can you guess the theme this week? Maybe? A little?  Okay I will not keep you in suspense any longer it is the them is Citrus, yes Citrus do you know how versatile it is?

This week's Citrus event is hosted by my friend Jen of Juanita's Cocina - she has been my amazing  #SundaySupper mentor.  Oh, and you must visit her amazing blog.

Now let me tell you about my dish.  There is a story to it... I originally envisioned Blood Orange Bars and they turned out good, the family liked them but to me they just lacked the citrus kick {probably should have added some lemon or lime to it}.  Here take a look...

So my next thought - I like love Key Limes - Key Lime Bars with Meringue....they did not turn out as "Bars" but are so super delicious. I needed a new name...I brought the dessert to dinner at our friends Larissa and Martin  - we all agreed that it does not qualify as "bar" and Larissa called them "Melange". But but but that is not the title, yes right...."Melange" was not understood and my friend Renee helped me to call it "Bliss".  Thank you, Renee!  And yes,  that is fitting perfectly because this dessert is absolute Key Lime Bliss without any dairy.  Here it is and yes it is absolutely not photogenic...but oh so yummy...

Yes, you read that one right - usually Key Lime desserts all use condensed milk which always is from the cow, but I made it with Vegan Condensed Milk I made from Soy.  Remember my Adventures in Caramel?  That is when I first introduced you to Vegan Condensed Milk and let me tell you, it works like a charm. is the recipe...
