Citrus Curd

Adapted from the citrus curd recipe here: http://www.thekitchn.com/your-template-for-sweet-and-tangy-citrus-curd-5-ways-227759?crlt.pid=camp.LmT44CQKZcSF

Servings: 20 (15ml / 1 tablespoon per serving)

180ml (3/4 cup) of citrus juice

the zest of one large citrus fruit or two small ones (~8g)

1/2 large egg (25g)

2 large yolks (40g)

95g (1/2 cup) erythritol OR xylitol

56g (4 tb.) cubed, cold butter

1/8 ts. salt


Whisk together the egg, yolks, salt and sweetener until fully combined, then add the zest and juice until well mixed. Heat over low flame, stirring constantly, until it is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon and is just on the verge of boiling. If you have a thermometer do not let it pass 180F. Strain the mixture into a bowl and mix in the butter cubes. Chill thoroughly before using.


Nutrition Info:
Please note that I used MyFitnessPal (a FREE app) to calculate this info, so it may not be 100% accurate, AND I don't think it tracks net carbs, so a portion of the carbs listed may be processed by your body as fiber and NOT actually absorbed as energy.

net carbs = total carbs - dietary fiber (dietary fiber is what makes up about half of most sugar-alcohols, as well as most of the carbs in coconut flour)

When you're as obsessed with sweets as I am, skipping dessert is not an option, but all the "sugar-free" treats I find in stores/restaurants never quite taste like dessert. After discovering that GOOD low-carb dessert recipes are so hard to find, I started experimenting and creating my own. TPH exists so that diabetics, carb-resistant people like me, and anyone else looking to avoid sugar can enjoy truly decadent desserts that won't cause insulin resistance or tooth decay.
