Sugar Donuts & Lemon Curd

One of my personal favorite recipes that I have created is my Fluffy-Soft Ketogenic Donuts. I wanted to give you a new bright spring twist on it that would be perfect for a Mother's Day dessert!

Why change something that is already so good? I didn't change anything to my recipe ONLY made the process a little bit easier to execute.



The new bonus with this recipe you don't need to cut, shape & mould your doughnuts. All you need is a sharp rim of a cup, like you making a biscuit ;) 

Traditional doughnuts are basically a big old lump of toxic sugary gluten dough fried in the deadly inflammatory vegetable oil! I believe that when we treat ourselves, it MUST come from a mindset of treating our insides too... I remind myself every day that our bodies were purchased with a price, and we should glorify our bodies that God has blessed us within a nurturing caring way!

Don't you agree?

It's Mothers Day this weekend, try to remember all the years your mother made you eat healthily and cared for you. This Mother'S Day it is our turn to give our mothers something sweet and special that her body, soul, and spirit will genuinely enjoy. 

I have to tell you the truth. My recipe didn't turn out as planned, but I didn't stress... My goal was to create Sugar Donuts filled with my keto-creamy lemon curd. I don't know what I was thinking; I made my donuts too small. I had all this lemon curd but not big enough donuts to fill all my lovely curd.

When things don't work out a plan, I always think to myself "it's time to get creative" I don't know how creative it is to slap together two donuts with some lemon curd in the center, but that what I did!

Tyler, my husband, had a few of his friends over so they got to be the taste testers. They took one bite and did not believe that they were healthy... Or better yet, they thought I bought the donuts from the store. The best part they said was that they got the more creamy lemon curd them what you would get in the classic donut, but a bit messier haha :)

You can always just make the sugar-coated keto-donuts, they are amazing just as is. I would recommend adding some cinnamon to your Lakanto; this just takes these doughnuts to the next level. 

If you are making my creamy keto-lemon curd filling, I recommend you read my directions carefully to create that perfect, creamy tart lemon curd.

I pray you all have a lovely Mother's Day, filled with that sweet and satisfying nurturing love of your mother or even the blessing of being a mother!
