- 3/4 cup honey-sweetened lemon curd
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 Tbs. grassfed gelatin if using homemade or light coconut milk OR 1 1/2 tsp. if using full-fat canned
- Raw honey, to taste
- Pinch of salt
- First, make the honey-sweetened lemon curd (I’ve linked a good recipe above). Chill until thickened and cold.
- In a small saucepan, whisk together the coconut milk and gelatin. Let sit for 10 minutes. Then turn the heat on medium and whisk until the gelatin dissolves. Pour into a bowl and refrigerate until set, about 4 hours.
- In a food processor, blend together the set coconut milk and the lemon curd until smooth. Add honey to taste and a small pinch of salt.
- 3 lemons
- 1 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 c liquid coconut oil (melted in microwave)
- 4 extra large eggs
- 1/2 c fresh lemon juice
- 1/8 tsp kosher salt
Remove zest from lemons with a grater and place zest and honey in a food processor. Process until smooth. Add liquid coconut oil and process. Add eggs one at a time, processing before adding each egg. Finally, add lemon juice and salt and process. Transfer mixture to a sauce pan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened – about 10-15 minutes. Allow to cool completely and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Can be served as a filling in paleo cakes, or as a topping with fresh berries.
