What is Lemon Curd?
It is beautiful and flavorful in every creamy delicious bite! Lemon curd is a decadent dessert topping or spread that is very rich in flavor. The sweet and creamy blend has an intense lemon flavor that has a hint of tartness to it. Some compare this curd to a jam version of the dessert. With these simple ingredients, this curd will come together quickly and easily over the stovetop.
Traditional recipes are packed with carbs and tons of sugar. I have created an amazing sugar-free lemon curd, so you don’t have to worry about carbs or sugar!
And if you’re going to have lemon curd, it should definitely be homemade! It always makes me sad when I hear of someone using store-bought lemon curd. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it just isn’t the same. It doesn’t have nearly the same flavor. If you’ve never made it before, you seriously have to try it.
Lemon curd is one of the easiest things to make, it’s a thick spread made from fresh lemons, sugar, eggs, and butter. It’s smooth, and creamy in texture with a bright, sweet, and zingy flavor perfect for using in desserts or simply spreading on toast for breakfast.
Once you make this easy homemade version I guarantee you’ll never be tempted to pick up a jar at the store again because it doesn’t taste nearly as delicious!

How Long Will Keto Lemon Curd Last?
As long as you keep the lemon curd in an airtight container, it will last in the refrigerator for up to one week. It’s important not to leave the low carb keto lemon curd at room temperature, or it will go bad quickly. When it’s refrigerated, keep an eye on it and if you open it and notice it has a strange texture or has an odor, then it has probably started to go bad and should be discarded.
