IMG_5776

This lemon curd is dairy free, sweetened with raw honey and super easy to make. There is a lot of uses for lemon curd. You can serve it with porridge, ice cream, spread over cakes, muffins, mix it into natural yoghurt or cottage cheese.

Some tips for you. While cooking, do not let curd to boil because eggs scramble around 85 C. So be careful. If you don’t want your curd taste coconutty, do not use unrefined coconut oil. Some of you would ask why? So I’ll explain a bit. Unrefined coconut oil is often referred as “virgin” or “pure” coconut oil. It retains the flavor and odor of coconut. Refined coconut oil refers to coconut oil that has been bleached and deodorized so you wont get strong coconut flour.
