Oh. Em. Gee. There are exactly 54 days until the release of Easy Keto Desserts! Not that I am counting or anything. I am not in the least bit excited for this cookbook. Nope, not me.

How To Make Keto Lemon Curd
So yes, we have a ways to go here but I thought I’d bring you a little teaser in the form of this amazing and easy keto lemon curd. I’ve made lemon curd any number of times before but I was experimenting a lot when I was writing the book and I decided to try a whole egg lemon curd. Typically lemon curd is made with just egg yolks, which leaves you with leftover egg whites. Not the worst problem in the world but it’s all that much easier when a recipe uses the whole egg. Less fuss, less muss, and nothing sitting in your fridge, waiting to be used up.
I have to say that this was easily the best sugar-free lemon curd I’ve ever made. It was creamier and a little fluffier, and it didn’t seem to curdle as easily. And oh my goodness, I could have just stood there, spooning the curd into my mouth, even when it was still warm. I will never make lemon curd any other way ever again. I featured it in two recipes in Easy Keto Desserts, including some mini tarts and some keto lemon mousse, but there are so many other things you can do with it. I am excited to make more and start playing with it.
But in the meantime, friends, here are some great low carb recipes that go perfectly with my delicious keto lemon curd! (Use this new recipe in place of the older one).
Low Carb Lemon Curd
- 3 large eggs
- ½ cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
- ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
- 4 tablespoons butter cut into 3 pieces
- In a glass or ceramic bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, whisk together the eggs, sweetener, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Whisk continuously until the mixture thickens, about 10 minutes. Watch carefully as it will thicken all of a sudden.
- Immediately remove from heat and add the butter. Let sit a few minutes to melt and then whisk until smooth and creamy.
