Have you ever had lemon curd? It’s a deliciously decadent, creamy, tart, sweet and smooth custard that you make with lemons, sugar, butter and egg yolk. There aren’t many things that taste as heavenly as a good lemon curd, but I think this Paleo Orange Curd can give it a run for its money!
It might sound hard to turn a recipe made up mostly of butter and sugar into a Paleo dessert that is dairy-free, but it’s not! In place of sugar we simply use organic, raw honey, and in place of butter, I used coconut oil! However, you could just use good, grass-fed butter and still keep this recipe Paleo.
To make this Paleo Orange Curd, all you do is combine all the ingredients in a saucepan and whisk over low/medium heat until it thickens and begins to bubble slightly. All it takes is ten minutes, and you have a silky smooth, decadent, Paleo dessert.
You could use this recipe to make lemon or lime curd that is Paleo, too! If you did, keep all the measurements the same, except use 1/2 cup honey, or more if that still isn’t sweet enough for you.
There are a couple products that I used in this recipe that I really love! Here are a couple options the brands of honey and coconut oil.
This recipe for Paleo Orange Curd is made super easy when you use the correct tools. I use each of these tools on a regular basis for many things! The microplane is great for grating garlic and cheese, as well as zesting citrus fruits. And the mesh strainer is great for broths, elderberry syrup, juicing citrus to keep out the seeds, and more! Every cook should have these tools in their kitchen.
