Ingredients

  • 4 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter unsalted (salted can be used, but it will give a more buttery taste)
  • 4 large eggs separated
  • 1/2 teaspoon SweetLeaf stevia drops or lemon flavored
  • 1/4 teaspoon monk fruit liquid extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
  • pinch lemon peel optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • xanthan gum or glucomannan powder, optional

Instructions

  • In medium saucepan, melt together mascarpone cheese and butter.
  • Whisk in egg yolks.
  • Continue to cook on low heat, stirring occasionally until custard thickens.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in liquid sweeteners and lemon flavoring.
  • Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
  • Beat yolk mixture into egg whites.
  • Chill. If desired, beat in xanthan gum or glucomannan powder with an electric mixer to give more of a pudding consistency.

Notes

You can use an alternate sweetener to replace the stevia and monk fruit. In total, you'll want about 1/3 cup sugar equivalent or a bit more to taste.
If adding xanthan gum or glucomannan powder, start with 1/4 teaspoon and add more as needed to reach desired thickness.
