What is it about spring and lemons? Lemons grow year round, well in some places, but once the calendar and the clocks change the lemon recipes fill the blogisphere. Not that I am complaining, I love all things lemon!! This year I decided to make a “healthier” version of my all-time favorite lemon cheesecake, so this Paleo Lemon Curd was needed to make it work…..

It still has all of the rich and creamy texture and flavor, but no refined sugar or dairy. So now you can have your toast or pancakes with Paleo Lemon Curd and forget all about the guilt. 😉 That’s how it works, right? Oh, did I mention how simple it is to make?

How to make Paleo Lemon Curd:

Bring 1-inch of water to a boil in a large pot.

Whisk together eggs, egg yolks, lemon juice, salt, and honey in a large stainless steel bowl, or double boiler…..

Unless of course you are as impatient as I am and pull it out after an hour ^^ before it gets a chance to thicken. 😉

Notes:

  • This paleo version is based on my Homemade Lemon Curd. I used 1/3 cup of raw honey in place of the 2/3 cups of sugar, so it’s not quite as sweet but the texture and thickness came out perfect.
  • I used ghee to replace the butter, but cut the amount down a bit to compensate for using less sweetener. I filled the measuring cup, but didn’t level it off for a “slightly rounded” 1/3 cup.
  • Feel free to substitute coconut oil for the ghee if you prefer.

And here is the amazing Paleo Lemon Cheesecake that you must try…..

Thankfully my son and his girlfriend came over for dinner so I was able to send it home with them…so I wouldn’t eat the whole thing!

Enjoy!!
