Low Carb Lemon Curd Cheesecake, Three Pies In One.

Can you agree with me that the saying “easy as pie” doesn’t always translate into a great dessert?  With this easy recipe I will show you how to create a low carb pie that lives up to that classic saying. This low carb lemon curd cheesecake gives you three pies in one. Making it possible to create a delicious pie that tackles this challenge once and for all.

Give Me Pies, Pies, Pies

What happens when your thoughts are consumed by pie? I guess you make more pies. Pies have been on my mind a lot lately, which would explain why I’m posting this Low Carb Lemon Curd Cheesecake recipe when my last post was also a pie recipe.

Easy As Pie

Well, I hope you have room for more of the same because I may still have a few low carb pies up my sleeve. Did you see my Low Carb Keto Berry Cheese Pie? Or how about my Low Carb Pecan Glazed Pumpkin Pie?  No? then go grab an apron and see what all the fuss is about. I will have you saying easy as pie in no time!

Can you guess who isn’t complaining about this pie streak? Yup, my hubby Randy. He loves letting people know that when it comes to recipe development, that his is the most important job; product testing. 😉

Three Pies In One

This low carb lemon curd cheesecake pie recipe is a combination of three classic pies. You see I couldn’t decide between making a low carb lemon curd pie, a low carb coconut pie or cheesecake.

So, I did what any reasonable food blogger does and created a pie that had the combination of the three great flavors.  I figured I certainly can’t be the only one who craves several pies at once.

This low carb lemon curd cheesecake has a smooth, creamy texture with a big burst of lemon flavor. The lemon curd really adds the perfect combination of sweet to tart.

I hope this post has inspired you to march into your kitchen and create a low carb pie that will have everyone raving.

  • 1 ½ cups of sugar-free coconut flakes
  • ¼ of almond flour or 2 tablespoons of coconut flour for nut free version
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • Lemon Curd
  • ¾ cup of sugar substitute I used Swerve
  • ¾ cup of lemon juice about 3 large lemons
  • 7 egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoons of lemon zest
  • ¼ tsp of sea salt
  • Cheesecake Filling
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter
  • ½ cup sugar substitute
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon of unflavored gelatin I used Great Lakes unflavored gelatin
  • 3 tablespoon of cold water


  1. Low Carb Lemon Curd
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan on low heat.
  3. Once the better is melted, remove the saucepan from heat and whisk in the sugar-substitute, lemon juice and lemon zest. Keep mixing until well combined.
  4. Return the saucepan to stove and whisk in the eggs yolk one at and cook on low heat until the curd starts to thicken.
  5. Remove the lemon curd off the stove and strain into a small bowl.
  6. Allow to cool at room temperature and then store in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes to an hour.
  7. Low Carb Coconut Crust Instructions
  8. Combine all the ingredients until well mixed.
  9. Press the coconut mixture into a 9-inch pie crust pan.
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  11. Once the pie crust is cooked and while it is still warm, press the crust with the back of a metal spoon. I find that pressing the crust soon after it’s been cooked allows for a crispier crust.
  12. Low Carb Cheesecake Filling
  13. Mix the gelatin with the cold water and set aside.
  14. Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, and sugar substitute.
  15. Fold in the prepared gelatin into the cheesecake batter.

  18. Next spread the lemon curd topping to the cheesecake.

  20. Store pie in the refrigerator.

Ever been in ketosis?


  1. How much butter in the lemon curd?
  2. Michele Sellers
    Is that 1/4 cup almond flour? Also, the lemon curd instructions say "Pour the sour-cream topping to the pie and allow to set for at least 30 minutes before slicing and enjoying." But the ingredients don't say anything about sour cream except for in the cheesecake instructions.
