Sugar-free lemon pie – a delicious low-carb lemon pie with coconut flour pie crust and sugar free lemon curd. 100% Gluten free, paleo, keto. A low calorie lemon pie perfect for a light fresh dessert to serve with fresh strawberries or a sugar free meringue.
Lemon Curd pies have always been my favorite dessert. However it took me 6 months before I managed to make the perfect sugar-free lemon pie. This recipe has been tested on my French friends and they love it. The sugar free lemon curd is not acidic, perfectly sweet – simply sweetened with sugar free crystal sweetener – I used erythritol or sometimes monk fruit sugar. I won’t lie to you, I have been a bit lazy and I did not squeeze fresh lemons. Instead I used freshly squeezed lemon from a pack – a lovely natural 100% squeeze lemon juice. What I love about this new recipe is the crust! I made an easy 4-ingredients coconut flour pie crust ready in 5 minutes in my food processor. It is THE healthy pie crust I am using for any low carb keto pie. Full recipe on the blog here.
Sometimes, I love to add a tiny bit of fresh vanilla in the dough. Very optional but it is a simple addition that makes a big difference. Coconut goes so well with lemon! I am wondering why I waited so long to eat sugar-free! These new clean eating recipes are way tastier than the french dessert recipes I used to make. And they are guilt free. You can make this sugar free lemon pie with different toppings. The meringue is not difficult to create without sugar. If you buy a good sugar free crystal sweetener like erythritol or monk fruit sugar it will work like a charm. Note that on the picture below I used my Low Carb Almond Flour Pie Crust recipe – that’s why it is not as white and shows you a different option!
Honestly, I don’t do a meringue each time. Sometimes I love to simply serve the sugar lemon pie with a sprinkle of unsweetened dessicated coconut and fresh grated lemon zest. Or, in summer I am adding fresh strawberries and a drizzle of sugar free chocolate.
If you still want to do the meringue, I recommend to prepare it just before serving the pie. I have a blow torch to burn the surface and keep the meringue soft. But you can also bring the sugar free lemon pie back in the oven for a few minutes on grill mode to brown the top.
