Easy keto lemon cream pie is creamy low carb lemon pie with easy keto press in pie crust. Sugar free, gluten free, light and refreshing keto lemon pie.

I was thinking about creamy and refreshing keto lemon pie for few days. Yesterday, after a long working day I decided to make it. And I have to share it immediately because it’s so good!

I wanted to have a keto lemon cream pie with light lemon cream. Light and fluffy low carb lemon pie with mild lemony flavor. Just didn’t want it to be too sour or too sweet. It has to be refreshing and fluffy keto pie.

This low carb cream lemon pie recipe is all of that and more. Light, lemony, creamy, flavorful and beyond that, it is sugar free and gluten free.

This is not recipe for lemon cream cheese pie but it is recipe for lemon mascarpone cheese pie and it is so easy to make. With really simple and delicious whole food ingredients. 

One reader gave me so wonderful compliment – he told me that he likes my recipes because they are realistic! That’s so powerful to hear, but also it is obliging me to continue this way. This lemon pie recipe is definitely realistic. With few normal, everyday ingredients that you have in your low carb kitchen.

Mascarpone cheese, eggs, some sweetener, almond meal and coconut flour. Just whole food keto ingredients.

Keto press in crust is easy to make. Just mix all ingredients to make keto dough and press in to pie dish. If you want your low carb pie crust to be crispy, use cold butter. Colder your butter and your hands are – crust will be more crispy. Definitely don’t use melted butter.

Bake low carb crust on 180 C/350 F for 15 minutes or until golden brown and your keto crust is done.

Low carb lemon cream is very light cream easy to make. You just need to whisk lemon juice and zest with low carb sweetener, eggs and heavy whipping cream and bring it to boil and stir for 3 minutes.

After boiling for 3 minutes, just mix in butter and mascarpone cheese until smooth and silky cream is formed. Pour mixed cream in the pie shell and keep it in the fridge for 8-12 hours. The best is overnight.

For the topping I use plain heavy whipping cream. Just whipped before serving. Don’t whip it in advance, it’s much better when it’s freshly whipped.

If you love your keto desserts to be sweeter, add 1 or 2 TBS of powdered low carb sweetener. In case you want to avoid all sweeteners but you love sweet taste, add 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Vanilla gives sweet feeling, just like you added some sweetener.
