Will Low Carb Foods Help With Weight Loss?
Eating low carb means eating good fats!
There is a misconception that people will gain weight (or gain fat) by eating fat.
If you are eating the right kind of fat, your body actually uses it for energy, and will not store it in your fat cells.
Be sure you’re not eating so much fat that your meal or snack ends up being so high in calories…it’s all about balance when it comes to weight loss.
What Ingredients Do I Need To Make Red Berry Curd?
The ingredients are super simple and can be found in your grocery store!
- fresh or frozen strawberries
- fresh or frozen raspberries
- lemon juice
- egg yolks
- low carb sweetener
Can I Make Curd Without An Instant Pot?
Of course you can!
If you do not own an Instant Pot, it is still possible to make this delicious curd.
First, you will want to put your berries, lemon juice and sweetener in a blender and blend till smooth.
*if using frozen berries, place berries, lemon juice and sweetener in a pot on your stovetop and cook over medium-low heat until the berries are thawed...then proceed to blend that mixture.
For the curd, make a double boiler by pouring about 2 inches of water in a pot on the stove and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, turn heat down to medium-low and place glass bowl on top of pot (making sure the glass bowl does not touch water).
Add egg yolks and butter to glass bowl then stir them for 4-6 minutes. It is important to stir the eggs constantly so they don’t scramble!
Remove from heat as soon as egg yolks have thickened but not scrambled. If you did get bits of cooked egg in your curd, go ahead and strain it through a fine mesh strainer to remove…then pour back into bowl.
Add berry sauce to curd and mix thoroughly.
Allow it to cool and store in a Mason jar or container with airtight lid in the refrigerator.
Another Curd To Make In The Instant Pot
If you would rather not have a berry flavored curd, you will probably enjoy this Lime Curd. (you could also use lemons if you don’t have limes…so tasty)

This would make a delicious topping for homemade vanilla ice cream or cheesecake.
Another way to indulge in this delicious curd would be on homemade bread! Use it like jam…yum!
