When you really have a sweet tooth that you are trying to control on a keto diet or low carb diet, making something that uses natural sugar free sweeteners is the way to go.
Also, the best way to not overdue or overeat keto treats is to make them in small portions so they are measured out and easy to grab. Having a large cheesecake or cake is lovely for when you are entertaining but having a large keto dessert around in your kitchen may tempt you to eat more than 1 serving.
I've got a bunch of single serving cakes and keto dessert recipes that just make one or two servings, like my keto lava cakes, so you can avoid falling into the trap of overeating these delicious sugar free treats!
Satisfy your sweet tooth without spiking your blood sugar. Keeping your blood glucose levels nice and steady throughout the day is one of the best ways to control sugar cravings and lose weight.
Including healthy fats into your meals and snacks is helpful to feel satisfied and satiated. How much fat you should include in your low carb or keto diet is very individual and what one person is doing to lose weight, is not necessarily the right approach for anyone else.
This is not a one size fits all diet and you may need to change your macros to see the needle move in the right direction.
This egg custard is just slightly sweet, but can be adjusted to your preference.
Pro tip: Before adding the whole eggs to the custard mixture, taste the mixture and decide if it's sweet enough for you and your family. If not, add just a small amount more of your preferred low carb sweetener, taste again and if it's good for you then add your eggs into the mixture.
Topping with some low carb berries like raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries and some sugar free whipped cream is also a fantastic idea!
What is Egg Custard?
A simple, baked egg custard has simple ingredients; eggs, milk, salt and sweetener. It is the basic ingredients needed to make a keto quiche. When baked with a low temperature, in a water bath, the custard mixture is silky smooth and goes down like butter!
To make this egg custard keto friendly, we swapped milk with heavy cream as well as swapped out white refined sugar with our favorite sugar free, low carb, keto sweetener.
Enjoying this keto custard recipe every day will fit perfectly into your low carb life because it is just 1 carb net carbs and just around 200 calories making this an easy treat to enjoy while still losing weight.
Tools to Make Egg Custard
Blender-Using a high powered blender will get this egg custard prepped quickly to bake. You could whisk by hand but using a blender will ensure everything is blended well, no lumps.
Ramekins-I used 6 ounce ramekins but you could also use a 8 inch square baking dish. The ramekins make it easier for serving and are perfectly portioned.
Baking Dish-I used a 9 by 13 glass baking dish to place the smaller ramekins in, then added hot water to the baking dish about half way up the sides of the ramekins.

heavy whipping cream (for a dairy-free option use canned coconut milk or coconut cream)
unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk
Better than Sugar substitute or Swerve confectioners
pinch sea salt- optional ( I like adding a bit of salt to a sweet treat because it helps enhance the flavor without using too much sweetener)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place 5 individual ramekins in a 9 by 13 large baking dish.
Add all ingredients into a blender or large bowl and blend until smooth. Pour cream mixture evenly into ramekins.
Place 9 by 13 baking dish into the oven. Pour hot boiling water into the baking dish until it reaches half way up the sides of the ramekins. You just want enough water to at least be higher than the bottoms of the custard cups, possibly at least an inch of water.
Bake for 30 minutes or until the tops are golden brown, but custard is still a bit jiggly. (If you have a gas oven, cook time may need to be a bit longer, around 40 minutes). Remove from oven and allow to cool and set for about 10 minutes.
Enjoy baked custard warm, room temperature or refrigerate and top with sugar free whipped cream if desired.
How to Store Egg Custard
You can enjoy these warm right out of the oven or chill them in the fridge to enjoy all week long.
Allow to cool completely then place some plastic wrap or parchment over the top of each ramekin and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
I would not suggest freezing these as I'm not sure how well these will thaw out, but of course it could be done, but I think best if made fresh and just refrigerated.
Low Carb Sweetener Options
If you're not a fan of stevia in this low carb egg custard recipe you can swap with another low carb sweetener of choice.
Monk fruit sweetener is a great option and Swerve sweetener is also wonderful. If you want a silky smooth texture it's better to use a powdered or confectioners style low carb sweetener over a granular option.
Use my sweetener guide & conversion chart to help you decide how much to use in this recipe to replace the stevia I used.
