Keto Lemon Curd

A bright and fresh lemon curd recipe made low carb with a monk fruit sweetener. Be sure to powder your monk fruit sweetener prior to using for the smoothest texture. We love this lemon curd served in small dishes with a dollop of whipped cream or coconut whipped cream. For the best nutrition, use a pastured butter, which is high in CLAs. 5 NET CARBS PER 1/4 CUP SERVING

  • In a sauce pan, add egg yolks, lemon juice and monk fruit sweetener. Whisk until well combined, and then begin to heat the pan over low heat.
  • Continue whisking, with the temperature on the low side of medium low. Once the mixture has warmed, add the butter and continue to whisk every minute or so to incorporate the butter and keep the curd super smooth.
  • Warm the lemon curd to 160º F. If you don't have a thermometer, dip a spoon in the curd, and if the curd coats the back of the spoon, it's ready.
  • As the curd cools, continue whisking once every 5 minutes or so until it's cool enough to store in the refrigerator.
