  • 1 large eggs (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin coconut oil (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 2 cups raspberries (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 1/2 cup erythritol (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 20 drops stevia extract (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 4 large egg yolks (175 g / 6.2 oz)

  • 1/4 cream of tartar
  • 1/3 cup erythritol (175 g / 6.2 oz)
  • 1 pinch salt (175 g / 6.2 oz)

Instructions

  • First, prepare the raspberry curd filling.
  • Place the raspberries into a saucepan.
  • Add the stevia, ...
  • ...
  • lemon zest and lemon juice (or water).
  • Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Place the mixture into a fine-mesh sieve and push through using a spoon or a spatula.
  • Discard the seeds, place the smooth raspberry mixture back in the pan and add the powdered Erythritol and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, separate the egg whites from the egg yolks.
  • Place the egg yolks into a bowl and mix with arrowroot powder until smooth.
  • Make sure there are no lumps before you add it to the blended raspberries.
  • If using gelatin powder, dissolve it in 2 tablespoons of water before mixing with the egg yolks and raspberries.
  • Add the egg yolk mixture to the raspberries and process well.
  • Bring to boil over low-medium heat while stirring at all times.
  • When you see bubbles, cook for one more minute and take off the heat.
  • Add the butter and stir until smooth.
  • Transfer the curd into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressing it tightly to the surface of the curd to prevent a skin from forming on top.
  • Chill in the fridge for 11/2 - 2 hours.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the pie crust.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients - the almond flour, whey protein and powdered Erythritol.
  • Add the egg and coconut oil and process well.
  • Place the dough into a non-stick pan with a removable bottom and press up the sides to create a "bowl" shape.
  • Use a dough roller if needed.
  • Ideally, use a baking sheet as lining for the bottom to ensure that the crust doesn't get stuck to it.
  • Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down.
  • You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie.
  • Place the pie into the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes and keep an eye on it, as the almond flour may easily get burnt.
  • When done, remove from the oven and let it chill down.
  • Using a sharp knife, slightly lift the edges of the crust.
  • Reduce the temperature in the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F.
  • Place the egg whites in a mixer and and add cream of tartar throughout the beating process.
  • I'm using my Kenwood mixer.
  • Add powdered Erythritol and beat until the egg whites form into firm peaks.
  • Remove the raspberry curd from the fridge and place on top of the baked pie crust.
  • Spread the curd evenly and top with beaten egg white meringue.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes.
  • When done, set aside and let it cool down before placing the pie in the fridge.
  • Once chilled, the pie can be served.
  • Enjoy!
