Ingredients (makes 8 servings):

Instead of the listed sweeteners, you can try other healthy low-carb sweeteners from this list. The reason I'm using both Erythritol and stevia is to mask the aftertaste some of the sweeteners may have.

Tip

If you cannot eat raspberries, try strawberries. This recipe works the same as long as you add a ¼ cup more water to the strawberries.

Instructions

  1. First, prepare the raspberry curd filling. Add the stevia, ... |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  2. ... lemon zest and lemon juice (or water). Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  3. Place the mixture into a fine-mesh sieve and push through using a spoon or a spatula. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  4. Discard the seeds, place the smooth raspberry mixture back in the pan and add the powdered Erythritol and set aside. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  5. Meanwhile, separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks into a bowl and mix with arrowroot powder until smooth. Make sure there are no lumps before you add it to the blended raspberries.
    If using gelatin powder, dissolve it in 2 tablespoons of water before mixing with the egg yolks and raspberries. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  6. Add the egg yolk mixture to the raspberries and process well. Bring to boil over low-medium heat while stirring at all times. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  7. When you see bubbles, cook for one more minute and take off the heat. Add the butter and stir until smooth. Transfer the curd into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressing it tightly to the surface of the curd to prevent a skin from forming on top. Chill in the fridge for 1½ - 2 hours. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  8. Meanwhile, prepare the pie crust. Preheat the oven to 175 C / 350 F. Mix all the dry ingredients - the almond flour, whey protein and powdered Erythritol. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  9. Add the egg and coconut oil and process well. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  10. Place the dough into a non-stick pan with a removable bottom and press up the sides to create a "bowl" shape. Use a dough roller if needed.
    Ideally, use a baking sheet as lining for the bottom to ensure that the crust doesn't get stuck to it. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  11. Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down. You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie. Place the pie into the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes and keep an eye on it, as the almond flour may easily get burnt. When done, remove from the oven and let it chill down. Using a sharp knife, slightly lift the edges of the crust. Reduce the temperature in the oven to 160 C / 320 F. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  12. Place the egg whites in a mixer and and add cream of tartar throughout the beating process. I'm using my Kenwood mixer. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  13. Add powdered Erythritol and beat until the egg whites form into firm peaks. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  14. Remove the raspberry curd from the fridge and place on top of the baked pie crust. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  15. Spread the curd evenly and top with beaten egg white meringue. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  16. Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. When done, set aside and let it cool down before placing the pie in the fridge. Once chilled, the pie can be served. |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie Enjoy! |Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie

This looks amazing, I see net carbs are 6.5 per portion, how many portions are in the pie please?  I have all the ingredients so am gearing up to make it this weekend!  Smile

Do you need to use whey or protein? I would love to make this!

Reply

Hi Ace, I used whey protein isolate (not whey). I hope this helps Smile

This sounds lovely, but I have Colitis so can't eat Raspberries. Is there a recipe amount for  Lemon instead (like traditional lemon meringue) that I could use please?  I'm new to the site (happily so!) and am still paging through all the lovely recipes, so sorry if I sound lazy.  Thank you. Smile

Hi Caryn, thank you! Yes, you can use lemon curd instead - recipe is here: ketodietapp.com/.../how-to-use-leftover-egg-yolks-make-low-carb-lemon-curd

What can I use if I don't have the ceramic beans to weight it down?

Reply

I think that some people use rice or regular beans instead so you can use that if you like Smile

Martina, I've just sat down and eaten a slice of this work of art. Thank you for the recipe, please keep them coming Smile

Thank you Emz, I'm so happy you liked it Smile

With my wgt loss definitely stalled now, should I eat nuts (almond flour) and fruit (berries)? Or should I just skip this for now and keep to no treats?

Reply

Hélène  it's different for everyone but I think you should skip low-carb treats until you start losing weight again. What works for me and many others is to avoid snacking on nuts & cheese and eat 2-3 regular meals a day. Meat, non-starchy vegetables, eggs and avocados.

Reply
