The Best Low Carb Custard Recipe Ever
The main ingredients I used in making this keto custard are eggs and heavy cream. Heavy cream increases the fat content of the custard. Similarly, eggs provide you with protein and other nutrients without increasing the carbs.
No custard recipe is complete without a sweetener. Some sweeteners are not healthy for you. However, the one in this recipe certainly is.
I am speaking about erythritol. It is also known as a healthy sweetener. The reason for the name is that when you compare it with an equal quantity of sugar, the calories are just 6%. The sweetness is up to 80% of equivalent sugar content. Consequently, you will not experience any reduction in sweetness.
With vanilla extract, you have a flavouring ingredient as well. When you compare it with the regular custard, you will realize that there is not much difference.
Unless someone or you specifically go through the ingredients, there is no way to figure out that it is keto custard rather than a normal one.

In this keto custard recipe, Every ingredient has been selected such that it can minimize the carb content. There is, however, no shortage of fats in the recipe (More on that below).
