You can’t beat a home made custard. The main ingredients in a keto custard recipe are eggs and cream, so it is basically a fat bomb. We love some of this keto custard with a couple of blueberries sprinkled on top for a snack or drizzled on top of your favourite keto dessert.
When we first started out on a ketogenic diet this custard was a staple in our house. I love a serving of it after dinner for a yummy as well as super filling dessert. This custard is great on it’s own and can also be used in any recipe using custard like our Tropical Trifle or Raspberry Trifle.
Tips for making keto custard
Once you get the hang of making keto custard it is pretty easy, but you do need to be careful with the heat of your cooktop. After you combine the eggs and the cream mixture and put it back on the heat you don’t want it to cook too quickly, as the eggs will scramble. Just take your time, keep it on medium low and stir away. A little bit of patience is required, but it will be worth it once you taste the end result.
You will be left with some egg whites after you make the keto custard, so what can you do with them? Well they can be stored in the fridge for a few days and also frozen. One of my favourite ways to use them is to make some coconut macaroons. The recipe for the macaroons can be found in our tropical trifle recipe.

We love to use Sukrin sweeteners in our keto baking and this keto custard. We have tried loads of the sweeteners available on the market and have found this to be the best tasting option with no bitter after taste. Our family and friends, who are not keto, love our keto baking too when it is made with Sukrin. Also, it is made with our preferred sweeteners, a combination of stevia glycosides and erythritol.
Australians! Don’t worry, the Sukrin products are available for us too. If you are interested check out Sukrin Australia.
Our favourites from the Sukrin products are;
- Sukrin 1 – which substitutes one for one for white sugar
- Sukrin Gold – which substitutes one for one for brown sugar
- Sukrin Melis – which substitutes one for one for icing or powdered sugar
- Sukrin Gold Fibre Syrup – this reminds me of golden syrup that we use in baking in Australia. It tastes delicious and is great for making any caramel recipes
