Introducing our mouthwatering Keto Lemon Dessert! This recipe brings together a medley of delightful flavors, including a buttery crust, a creamy cheesecake layer, a tangy lemon curd, and a fluffy whipped topping. And the best part? It’s completely keto-friendly!
4.5 ounces keto vanilla wafers see Expert Tips for alternatives
¼ cup butter melted
8 ounces cream cheese softened
½ cup Swerve Confectioners see Expert tips for alternatives
¼ cup lemon juice
2 to 3 tablespoon heavy whipping cream
1 recipe keto lemon curd
¾ cup heavy whipping cream chilled
3 tablespoon Swerve Confectioners
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Place the vanilla wafers in a food processor and process until they resemble crumbs. You can also crush them in a zip lock bag.
Transfer to an 8×8 inch pan and drizzle with the melted butter. Mix well to combine and then press firmly and evenly into the bottom of the pan. Freeze will preparing the filling.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth, about 2 minutes. Beat in the sweetener and lemon juice until well combined.
Add the cream a little at a time until a nice spreadable consistency is achieved. Spread over the chilled crust and return to the freezer.
Prepare the lemon curd according to the directions, if you haven’t already. Spread over the cheesecake filling and return to the freezer.
In a large bowl, beat the whipping cream with the sweetener and vanilla until it holds stiff peaks. Spread over the lemon layer and return to the freezer.
Freeze at least 2 hours to help it set before cutting into servings.
Storage information: You can store Lemon Lush in either the refrigerator or the freezer. In both cases, wrap it up tightly. It can last in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or the freezer for up to 2 months. Let it thaw completely before serving.
Sweetener options: You can use a number of sweetener here but I do find that using allulose makes the cheesecake filling and the whipped topping very soft. They don’t firm up as well and the pieces come out a little messier. But it does work!
Since this is not a baked recipe, make sure you are using sweeteners that dissolve well. I recommend powdered sweeteners like Swerve Confectioners or concentrated liquid sweeteners like stevia extract.
