  • 3 or 4 medium size Lemons
  • 1 ½ Tbs Stevia
  • ¼ Lb Unsalted Butter at room temperature
  • 4 large Eggs
  • ½ cup Lemon Juice
  • 1/8 tsp fine Sea Salt


  1. Zest the lemons in a mixing bowl.
  2. Using an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter, stevia, salt and lemon zest for about 2 minutes, starting at a low speed to prevent to stevia from dusting up your kitchen.
  3. Add the eggs, one at the time, and incorporate them into the mixture.
  4. Pour in the lemon juice and continue to mix; the mixture will look like very small yellow cheese curds.
  5. Pour the mixture into a heavy-bottomed sauce pan over a low heat, stirring constantly. As soon as the mixture starts to heat it will turn homogenous. The curd will start to thicken as the first bubbles form.
  6. Remove the pan from the heat and continue to stir for an additional minute.
  7. Allow the keto lemon curd to cool, then transfer to a 2 cup-size container, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
