These beautiful Keto Lemon Curd Tarts with raspberries are fresh, easy, gluten free, grain free, low carb and just 10 ingredients!
Lemon curd is like a preserve. It has a thick consistency and is usually made with lemons, butter, eggs and sugar of course. But this recipe is without the sugar and you’d never know it or care for that matter. Lemon can be replaced with other citrus fruits like limes, tangerines or oranges. But being that’s it is now spring and lemony desserts make me happy, this recipe is perfection. It would especially look beautiful on a dessert table for Mother’s Day!
Just 5 ingredients in the crust recipe and just 5 ingredients in the filling recipe. Pretty simple, but elegant and delicious without much fuss in the kitchen. Topped here with raspberries but feel free to use blueberries or blackberries if you prefer.
When it comes to desserts, even ones that are sugar free, low carb and keto, I’ve got a tiny little problem of overindulging. Making perfectly portioned desserts is a whole lot easier for me and may be for you too. Of course you could still opt to turn this recipe into a whole pie if you prefer but the individual tarts are more my speed lately. I’m just into portion controlled desserts like my Easy Keto Brownie Jars, Keto Chia Pudding and Keto Strawberry Fat Bombs.
If you like this recipe and all my savory ones as well you might be interested in my meal plans!
A meal planning membership means you have access to a keto low carb meal plan each week using my recipes. You don’t have to do the work, it’s all done for you, but if you want to change out a recipe or adjust serving sizes you can, with a simple click!
Since January 1st I’ve added a meal planning membership that provides you a weekly menu plan with detailed shopping list. Once you receive the meal plan in your email, all you have to do is print the shopping list. You get the new weeks menu each Friday and the week begins on Sunday so that allows you to food shop Friday or Saturday to get ready for the week ahead.
Unlike other meal plans you may have tried, this meal plan is adjustable! This means if you’re not crazy about a particular meal, you can swap it out for something else and the best part is that the shopping list adjusts accordingly! Besides that, if you don’t have a large family like I do, you can adjust the servings of all the meals and again the shopping list will adjust. It’s pretty amazing software!
