  • 3 eggs + 1 egg yolk room tempurature
  • 1 tsp lemon rind (about 1 lemon)
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a medium sauce pan, over medium-low heat, whisk together eggs, lemon rind, lemon juice, honey, salt, and vanilla extract.

  2. When the egg mixture warms up, add the coconut oil and whisk to combine.  Continue to whisk until the mixture comes together and forms a pudding consistency, about 10 minutes.

  3. Strain the lemon curd through a fine mesh strainer into a clean glass bowl.  Cover and store in fridge.  The mixture will thicken more when chilled.  Mangia!
