Lemon curd is one of my favorite light summer desserts, so creating a Keto version was a must! The key to this delicious, thick Keto lemon curd is in the choice of alternative sugar.
In this case, we’re opting to use Bochasweet, which has zero after taste, and even non-keto family members will have no idea you didn’t use regular sugar (unless you tell them, of course!).
Combine the fresh lemon juice, fresh lemon zest, eggs, and Bochasweet in a heavy saucepan. You can even screw up and accidentally add the butter like I did because I was in a hurry, but, it’s better if you add the butter at the end.
Whisk the ingredients together, then turn the heat to low-medium, whisking constantly until it’s thick. You will want to whisk this the entire time because if you don’t, the whites of the eggs will cook prematurely and leave little dots of cooked white in your curd.
Remove from heat, whisk in the butter and lemon extract.
