Keto Egg Custard – Important Notes
- You can substitute Erythritol with NatVia, Monkfruit, or swerve sweetener in 1:1 ratio. Try to use powdered sweetener instead of granulated or it will have a grainy texture. If using granulated, then pulse them in a grinder or food processor until powdery.
- For the vanilla extract, you can use vanilla essence in a 1:1 ratio. Plus if you don’t have any vanilla extract left, use chicory powder with caramel extract.
- To get a caramel taste, add 2 tsp of organic vanilla extract and organic maple extract each.
- If you don’t have the heavy cream then replace that with coconut full fat cream.
How To Get The Perfect Texture (Not Egg-y Taste) ?

- Use a whisk when mixing the ingredients. Pour very slowly and whisk quickly when tempering.
