3 of the Best Keto Custard Recipes (Easy & Creamy)

Although people may try to tell you that being on a low carb diet will force you to give up dessert, we are here to tell you otherwise. There are many keto dessert recipes out there that will satisfy your sweet tooth without destroying your diet.

Our recipes, including these egg custard recipes, are also diabetic-friendly as we cook with sweeteners that do not raise your glycemic index.

What is the Best Way to Make Keto Custard?

If made correctly and with a good sweetener, custard has a lightly sweet taste. If done incorrectly, egg custard can taste quite eggy.

A very versatile dessert, you can serve it sprinkled with cinnamon, add fresh raspberries or strawberries to the top, or freeze it and enjoy it like ice cream.

We have three fantastic desserts to share with you today. Two are baked custard recipes (one dairy-free), and one is made on the stovetop.

Our 3 Best Keto Custard Recipes

1. Baked Custard

Prep Time

This delicious baked custard can be whipped together in a total time of under 45 minutes, not including chill time if you prefer your custard cold.


  • 3 large eggs (use the whole eggs for this recipe)

  • 2 cups heavy cream (heavy whipping cream)

  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener

  • 2 tablespoons of Fiberyum Tapioca Soluble Fiber Syrup

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.

  • Grease four small, ovenproof ramekins and place them in a large baking dish.

  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients until the mixture is smooth.

  • Fill the four ramekins and set the baking dish aside.

  • Boil 2-4 cups of water to the boil. Pour enough boiling water into the baking dish until the ramekins are submerged in about an inch of water. This cooks the custard in a water bath.

  • Place the baking dish in the oven. Bake the custard for around 30 minutes. The top of the custard should be firm.

  • Remove from the oven. Our easy keto custard can be served warm or cooled. Once cooled, you can refrigerate it until chilled.

Nutritional Information

The above recipe makes four servings. When divided equally, each ramekin is about 250 calories and 4 net carbs.

2. Keto Coconut Cream Low-Carb Custard

This keto dessert is dairy-free since it is made with coconut milk instead of heavy whipping cream!


  • 3 large egg yolks

  • 3 tablespoons granulated monk fruit sweetener sugar substitute

  • 1 (13.5 ounces) can coconut milk

  • 1 pinch of sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon sugar free vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened coconut flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

  2. Whisk the egg and sweetener together and set aside.

  3. Put 4 cups of water on to boil.

  4. Pour the coconut milk into a saucepan and put it on a medium heat until it begins to simmer. Add salt. Remove the cream mixture from the heat and add the vanilla while whisking.

  5. While briskly whisking the egg mixture, slowly add the coconut milk. Since this mixture is hot, you need to keep whisking quickly.

  6. Prepare 4 ramekins by spraying with nonstick spray or generously greasing. Add the custard mixture to the 4 prepared ramekins.

  7. Place ramekins in an oven-proof baking dish.

  8. Your water should be boiling, which will create a water bath to surround the keto egg custard. Gently pour the hot water around the ramekins so the ramekins are surrounded by water about one inch deep.

  9. Place the custard in the oven for 40-50 minutes of cooking time.

  10. When done cooking, remove from oven and allow to cool, then refrigerate if desired.

  11. Garnish with coconut flakes (toast them if you like for added aesthetic).

Nutritional Information

Each cup of custard is about 220 calories and 4 net carbohydrates.

3. No Bake Keto Custard Recipe

If you prefer a no-bake recipe, you can still make keto custard; you just need to cook it on the stovetop.


  • 2 tablespoons sugar free vanilla extract

  • 2 cups heavy cream

  • 1/4 cup erythritol sugar-free artificial sweetener

  • 6 egg yolks


  1. Gently beat the egg yolks together in a separate bowl and set aside. 

  2. Pour the heavy cream into a double boiler on medium-high heat.

  3. Stir the sweetener into the cream and stir constantly. Add the vanilla.

  4. Continue to heat gently until the cream bubbles, stirring occasionally.

  5. Heat for about 5-7 minutes, allowing the mixture to begin to thicken.

  6. Remove a large scoop of the hot cream and add it to the egg yolks while whisking the mixture.

  7. Pour the yolks in, 2 tablespoons at a time to the heated cream while continuously stirring over medium-high heat.

  8. Heat the custard gently until it thickens and sticks to the spoon.

  9. Pour into four single-serving ramekins.

  10. Eat warm or put in the refrigerator to chill for 2-3 hours.
