Try this low keto lime curd recipe as an alternative to lemon curd for a sweet sugar-free sauce. A smooth, thick and creamy dessert sauce with the sharp taste of lime.
What is lime curd?
This creamy curd is just the same as lemon curd but simply made with limes. It's a sweet thick sauce made with butter, eggs, lime juice and a low carb sweetener.
Lime curd can be used for low carb tart fillings, or drizzled over cakes. Swirl it into ice cream too. Or enjoy a couple of spoonfuls from the jar!
How to make keto lime curd
As with lemon curd, there are a few ways to make lime curd but I've kept it simple and easy.
I used regular local limes to make this but if you could buy key limes make a batch with them as I'm sure it would be delicious. If you find the taste of this curd too sharpen, simply add more sweetener.
The butter needs to be frozen for at least and hour. The other ingredients are blended, heated then the frozen butter is added. Stir until smooth and you have a creamy smooth sauce.

Is the sweetener powdered or crystal?
Angela Coleby says
I used powdered but crystal would work.
Turned out great. Followed exactly. This technique is better than others I used where you must temper the eggs. The blending it made it so much easier. Thanks 😊
