Coconut Curd

Are you a coconut fan? Then you will love this: Coconut Curd! It’s so sweet and creamy. Really hard to think this is guilt-free! And my favorite part is topping it off with toasted shredded coconut. Mmmmm….

RECIPE

  • 5-6 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons of butter (cut up into 4 pieces)
  • 3 oz. of coconut cream (the heavy stuff!)
  • 1/2 cup of agave nectar (or another sweetener)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla (optional)
  1. Set up a bain marie or heat-proof bowl over simmering water.
  2. Add the egg yolks, coconut cream and sweetener. Use a whisk to stir and combine the ingredients.
  3. Slowly add small pieces of butter until it’s all in the bowl. Whisk the butter into the mixture as you add it.
  4. Gently simmer and occasionally blend the mixture until it thickens (about 5 minutes). Try not to let it get clumpy.
  5. Once it is the consistency of custard, take it off the heat, cool in a bowl or pan of cold water to stop it from cooking, and then store it in the refrigerator to use in yogurt, as cupcake filling, or just by itself!
