Lemon curd has always been a favourite treat of mine, and since going keto I had to make a sugar free keto lemon curd a first recipe to convert.  Surprising it is super easy! Oh and I have to make it super lemony!

SUGAR FREE KETO LEMON CURD INGREDIENTS

While I usually say use your sweetener of choice I really do prefer to use Sukrin’s Icing Sweetener in this recipe. I just feel you get a better result with less crystallisation upon refrigeration.

Now to be honest I have tried a lot of sweeteners in many of my keto curd recipes and all of them crystallise when they are refrigerated.

If for instance I am making a keto lemon meringue pie I will make the curd on the day and only slightly set it in the fridge before topping with meringue, (baking or blow torching) and serving.

Otherwise my little tip for the perfect low carb lemon curd is to heat it slightly if it has been in the fridge.

You need to do this gently in a saucepan over low heat but it will make the mix smooth and creamy once again. This is what you will need to make the lemon curd

  • 100 g butter
  • ½ cup sweetener I use powdered erythitol
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 6 egg yolks

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY KETO LEMON CURD

Actually making a good creamy keto lemon curd isn’t that hard. It is no different than a normal curd.

In fact this recipe is a straight sugar to sweetener conversion of the same recipe I was using in restaurants and hotels for many years.

It works perfect every time, and as a keto Thermomix lemon curd it also turns out perfect every time.

Just be ready with a spoon to try it when its done, or don’t let any on the butterfly go to waste. Here is my easy steps for the perfect sugar free lemon curd.

THERMOMIX METHOD

  • Melt butter in TM for 3 minutes/ 90℃/speed 1.
  • Add sweetener, lemon juice and zest and mix for 3 minutes/speed 3.
  • Add egg yolks and butterfly for 11 minutes/80℃/speed 3.
  • Keep in an airtight jar and refrigerate

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat
  • Add sweetener, lemon juice and zest and stir through until sweetener dissolves.
  • Add yolks and continue to stir over medium heat until the mix thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon.
  • Keep in an airtight jar and refrigerate

What’s the BEST way to eat it?

In my opinion lemon curd is an absolute winner with Sugar Free Keto Pavlova

The pav is beautifully light, marshmallowy, crisp on the outside and just the right amount of sweetness.  Paired with this curd and double cream…..perfection!

Notes

STORAGE
This recipe can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week.  It is also suitable to freeze.
SWEETENER
Xylitol or allulose are my two only recommended sweeteners for this recipe. The reason being is that the others do recrystallise. If you are making the curd to use on the day then use any sweetener of choice as long as it is a 1:1 ratio of sweetness to sugar.

    How much gelatin would you add to turn this into gummies? And how much collagen? Inulin?

    How much gelatin would you add to turn this into gummies please? How much collagen? Inulin?
    Cheers, your website is fantastic, and I can’t wait to get my bread mix:)

    • Megan Mad Creations Hub says:

      Gelatin aways depends on bloom and what kind you are using. Just check what one you have uses for 1 cup of liquid.

    I absolutely love this lemon curd. It’s so easy to make and I love how zesty it is with just the right amount of lemon in it . It’s perfect in so many recipes especially your lemon curd tea cake.
    If you haven’t made it yet then you need to make this recipe.

    This is definitely my most favourite Lemon Curd recipe – it tastes SO good and it doesn’t get ‘grainy’ like some recipes with other sweeteners.

    Another huge fave!!

    Thanks Megan!!
