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!

One combination I really love is lemon and chocolate.  You may think it sounds wrong but let me tell you it is oh so right.  You have to check out my recipe for the Chocolate Lemon Mousse and and the Lemon Curd Bites.  I am feeling the need now even writing this that I need to make them again.

My earliest memory of enjoying lemon curd is attending Tupperware parties with my mum and her friends and one of her friends always made lemon curd wrapped in crepes and dusted with icing sugar. Oh my goodness they were so good.  I mean I ate like a machine at these parties.  Ironically I weighed about as much as one of those crepes in those days, guess the carbs caught up eventually. Haha.

Anyway if you love a great curd then this is your recipe.  I hope you love it!

For another great way to enjoy your lemon curd you have to check out my delicious new keto Pavlova.  It is beautifully light, marshmallowy, crisp on the outside and just the right amount of sweetness.  Paired with this curd and double cream…..perfection!
