Keto Lemon Curd Pie
If you’ve never had keto lemon curd you really need to try this recipe. This pie is bursting with flavor and the best part is that it’s low in carbs and keto-friendly.
This keto lemon curd pie combines the flavors of lemon curd, cheesecake and coconut for one delicious treat.
The combination of all three flavors makes it a game changer in my book. You see you get the tartness of lemon curd with the smoothness of cheesecake.
The first time I made a keto lemon curd, I knew it would be the base for a pie. Although enjoying the lemon curd by spoonfuls. I knew a pie would be even better.
Because I wanted to balance the tartness of the lemon curd it made sense to me to combine it with an easy cheesecake.
Thankfully, I a glad I went with my instincts because the keto lemon curd is further enhanced with the addition of cheesecake.
But if that wasn’t enough I added to the texture of this keto lemon curd pie by adding a toasted coconut crust.

Maybe it’s just me, but something about this pie puts me in a great mood. I think it has to do at least in part with the bright yellow color of the low carb lemon curd.

- 1 ½ cups of sugar-free coconut flakes
- ¼ of almond flour or 2 tablespoons of coconut flour for nut free version
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ¾ cup of sugar substitute I used Swerve
- ¾ cup of lemon juice about 3 large lemons
- 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
- 7 egg yolks
- 1 tablespoons of lemon zest
- ¼ tsp of sea salt
- 1 package of cream cheese (8 ounces)

Keto Lemon Curd
- Over a double boiler melt the butter in a medium sized bowl over low heat.

- Next whisk in the eggs yolk one at and cook on low heat until the curd starts to thicken.
- Remove the lemon curd off the stove and strain into a small bowl.
- Allow to cool at room temperature and then store in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
Keto Coconut Crust Instructions
- Combine all the ingredients until well mixed.
- Press the coconut mixture into a 9-inch pie crust pan.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Once the pie crust is cooked and while it is still warm, press the crust with the back of a metal spoon. I find that pressing the crust soon after it’s been cooked allows for a crispier crust.
Keto Cheesecake Filling
- Mix the gelatin with the cold water and set aside.
- Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar substitute.
- Fold in the prepared gelatin into the cheesecake batter.
