    Hi Cindy I like the idea of the cream cheese - did you use light? Can’t wait to make it.

      Trialled half the recipe to see if I liked it, to save wasting ingredients. I used Philadelphia cheese instead of Mascapone, trebled up on the lemon juice as I like it super sharp. Used powdered Ethrytol.. I topped it with soft fruit - raspberries. Which of course upped the carbs. But just gorgeous on its own. Such a decadent desert. Highly recommend this recipe. Will make it again as I want it for my packed lunch, in a little glass jar. Yum!

        Can you put all ingredients in a thermomix and blend ? Can I use monk fruit as the sweetener?

          I don't know what a Thermomix is, but I mixed mine by hand (but only used a few tablespoons of Heavy cream) to thin out the Marscapone. You can use whatever sweetener you like. I omitted the Erythritol (because it's poisonous to dogs) and I added a scoop of vanilla protein powder.

        This recipe is awesome! I used mascarpone as it’s to be a treat and doubled the zest and lemon juice (judging by the comments here). It’s delicious! I’m the only one in the household doing keto and no sugar and no one believed it was a keto recipe! Such a lovely fresh taste and perfect for summer!

            I serving has 20 carbs? Am I reading the nutritional info correctly?

              20 total carbs, 4 net carbs per serving

              I think you have to deduct the sugar alcohol from the total carbs which brings it down to 4.

              It says 4 net carbs, so the 20 must be wrong

              I don’t see why not.

            After mixing the mascarpone with the sweetener and lemon it curdled all up. not sure why, but guessing the lemon did something?

              I would do it again with more lemon juice. I felt it lacked that nice tart flavor I want in a lemon dessert.

                Try adding some lemon zest.

              Was delicious but didn’t realise the sugar content was so high in mascarpone til it was too late

                  Has anyone tried making this with lemon-flavored stevia drops?

                    Will this keep in the fridge? I want to make it but I’m the only keto-er in the fam.

                        Very nice. I might have liked a little more lemon flavor but a nice flavor and texture. Easy too

                        Can we use stevia instead of the other sweetener.

                        • recipewriter

                          recipewriter 5 years ago

                          Hi, I'm sure stevia would work just as well, however you will need to adjust the quantities accordingly as it will not be the same sweetness level.

                          Hi, i have not tried this so I am unfortunately unable to say whether this would work and how it would affect the texture.
