Peppermint Keto Custard with Gelatin

posted in: Recipes

Inspiration for this Peppermint Keto Custard came from the classic summertime dessert, grasshopper pie. It’s a beautiful dessert combining a minty cream filling with a chocolate pie crust. Usually served chilled, this pie is ultra reviving to the palate when temperatures rise.

…but it’s a multi-step prep process

…and takes at least 30 minutes to make, plus, in some cases, prebaking the crust (when it’s really too hot for the oven!) and then you still have to let it chill…

For this recipe, I focus just on the delightfully creamy filling and make a crustless filling, tummy toning, keto custard. All in all, it becomes a more foolproof recipe and perfect for busy (and practical) people who like good food but don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. Story of my life!

Cooking Tips For Keto Custard

Keto custard can be made entirely from natural, organic ingredients without any artificial flavors, preservatives, or added sugar. A homemade custard is far superior than anything you can find at the grocery store!

  • Love the mint chocolate combo of grasshopper pie? Serve with grated cacao paste shavings on top or mix in 4 tablespoons of cacao powder to the bowl of eggs and sweetener. If you add cacao, you want to use 2-4 tablespoons sweetener.
  • If serving for guests or a special occasion, top with extra whipped cream
  • Source raw, unpasteurized dairy whenever possible. Use our directory list here to source quality foods in your area.
  • Make ahead of time and store in the fridge until ready to serve. It will be good for a few days after making, just keep in an air tight container.
  • Serve in on big dish or separate into 4 small ramekins for individual portions.
  • Batch the recipe and store in the fridge or freezer to last all week!

Lakanto’s Monkfruit Sweetener is

  • ZERO GLYCEMIC – Will not increase blood sugar

  • USEFUL – Flavor drinks, chocolate, cakes, and more!
  • EASY – Convenient for on-the-go or everyday use
  • Non-GMO Verified Monk Fruit
  • DELICIOUS with no bitter aftertaste

Alternatives:

I use Lakanto exclusively, but if you can’t get it delivered to your area, use liquid stevia drops, a different brand of monkfruit sweetener, or erythritol instead. This recipe is pretty good on it’s own with out any sweetener added. It’s up to you if you want to boost the flavor up a sweeter notch or not.

Low Fiber & Carnivore-Friendly

Some folks find they prefer a fiber-free Carnivore Diet to remedy auto-immune conditions, improve mental health, and achieve rapid fat loss. This custard is almost 100% made from animal foods. A pinch of plant based sweetener and peppermint extract may not cause reactions for some people. If you prefer to use honey (and don’t mind the carbs) you may substitute it in an equal amount.

    I wonder what it would taste like if you substituted glycine for the monk fruit? Glycine is kinda sweet so it may work!

      I have never tried this myself, it might work but I do not have any experience with this specific substitution.
