Sugar Free Lemon Pie with Coconut Flour Pie Crust

Lemon Curd pie has 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 by my French friends and they love it. The sugar free lemon curd is not acid  perfectly sweet – simply sweetened with sugar free crustal sweetener – I used erythritol or sometimes monk fruit sugar. I will not 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 crust. Full recipe on the blog here. 

Coconut Flour Pie crust for lemon pie

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 wait so long to eat sugar free! Those new clean eating recipes are way tastier than the french dessert recipes I used to make. HAHA and 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: on the picture below I used my Low Carb Almond Flour Pie Crust recipe – that is why it is not as white and it is to show 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 torch lamp to burn the surface and keep the meringue soft. But you can also bring the sugar free lemon pie back in the oven for few minutes on grill mode to brown the top.

Sugar free Lemon curd

Soft sugar free meringue frosting


Coconut Flour Pie Crust

Sugar Free Lemon Curd

  • Whisk the lemon juice, sweetener, eggs and egg yolks together in a sauce pan.
  • Bring to medium heat and add the coconut oil or butter, stirring continuously, to avoid the eggs to cook and scramble.
  • When the coconut oil is melted, increase the heat to medium-high, keep stirring until it thickens up.
  • When thick, remove from heat and transfer into a bowl to cool down at room temperature for 15 minutes.
  • Fill in the coconut flour pie crust with the lemon curd. Refrigerate the lemon pie for at least 2 hours to firm up.

Sugar free meringue frosting

  • Before serving add the meringue.
  • In a bowl whisk the egg white until it starts producing a good volume. Usually 30 seconds on high speed.
  • Keep whisking on high speed and slowly add the sugar free crystal sweetener of your choice.
  • After 1 minutes and 30 seconds the meringue should be really fluffy and triple its volume.
  • Upside down the bowl to check if the meringue is ready. If it stick to the bowl transfer on the top of the lemon curd pie.
  • Torch the top of the meringue or place 2 minutes in the oven on grill more until the top is slightly brown.
Sugar free crystal sweetener: you can use Swerve in US/Canada, Natvia in New Zealand and Australia or Monk fruit sugar or erythritol. 
Meringue replacement: if you don't have time to make the meringue, serve the pie with a sprinkle of unsweetened desiccated coconut or fresh strawberries on top ! 
Pie pan: I used a 8 inch loose bottom quiche pan for this recipe

    • Not yet but on my mind 🙂 Subscribe to my newsletter and you will be the first to now it if it comes out! XOXO Carine.

    • You can follow the exact same recipe and cut in 8 even slices. That is the best way to serve 8 people with this recipe. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • I am using erythritol or monk fruit stevia blend in this recipe not pure stevia! Stevia is way too bitter and strong for baking. Make sure you use the same brand as I do for success. You can find the product here. Enoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  1. I am new to sugar free baking. and I am confused by the sugar free substitute for sugar. in the strawberry sugar free lemon pie. Can I use Truvia, .the spoonable type,. for the sugar substitute? If so, do I use the amount called for in the recipe?

    Thank you.

    • I am not familiar with truvia, it is not sold where I live in New Zealand, but any sugar free blend made of stevia and erythritol are perfect for this recipe. Enjoy! XOXO Carine

  2. II am new to making sugar free pastries. Can I use spoonable Truvia for the sweetner in both the crust and the lemon curd? Do I use the amount specified in the recipes?

    Thank you for your help!

    • If truvia is a blend of erythritol and stevia that can be use as a 1:! ratio sugar substitute, then yes, same amount is fine. I never used Truvia before, not sold in my country so I am unsure how it works. Enjoy the sugar-free recipes on the blog, XOXO Carine.

    Hello…Will definite try it!! Thanks for sharing. Just one question, how much gr of coconut oil should i use? It doesnt says. Thanks 🙂

    • Hi! I am so sorry for the missing ingredient! I just updated the recipe card 🙂 I used 1/2 cup coconut oil for the lemon curd ! You’ll love this simple lemon pie. Thanks for reading the blog or should I say proofreading !!! haha XOXO Carine.

      • Hi! I’m in the middle of making this pie. I’m up to the meringue part, but I noticed that it doesn’t have to be cooked at all. Is this safe for consumption since they are raw egg whites? If anyone has an answer I would really appreciate it!

        • Yes it is ! Many French dessert contains raw egg white like chocolate mousse or pie meringue. You can return the pie to the oven at 80C to brown the top if you like but it is optionnal. Make sure you store the pie in the fridge and eat within few days. Enjoy, XOXO Carine.

    • So true! Lemon are available all the year and it is always a winner dessert. I just checked your blog BTW, it is such a great source of Low carbs recipes. I will try some of them soon 🙂 See you soon on the blog Vicky. Carine. xx.
