4-Ingredient Vegan Lemon Curd

I have always been a fan of sour treats, so I knew I had to come up with a yummy Vegan Lemon Curd recipe.

This tangy vegan lemon curd is perfect for people who take the expression “go suck a lemon” seriously because they love the lip puckering taste. If you look forward to your morning lemon water, you will love this dairy-free dessert!

If you find lemons too sour, you can reduce the amount of lemon juice and lemon zest and increase the amount of coconut milk.

    I would like to have this recipe without vegan consideration, please. I searched this site for traditional lemon curd but it only showed the vegan option. Could you please repost without vegan ingredients or just list which ones would be replaced. I thank you~ Have a happy Easter

      Unfortunately, I haven’t created a non-vegan version yet! When I do I’ll let you know.
