Yasue's recipe 🍃 Vegan Lemon Curd Recipe

Gluten-free/Plant-based/Refined sugar-free

Enjoy a healthy version of this wonderful spread!

Lemons come into season with the first signs of spring. According to the macrobiotic approach, eating fresh seasonal food, supplements the body's need for nutrients at that time of year and helps the body to adapt well to seasonal changes. 

Lemon curd can be served with bread and yoghurt at anytime of day, as well as being a great dessert. Normally lemon curd recipes have butter and eggs, but not in this recipe. It is also very easy to make. Mix Fermented Green Papaya Enzyme into the guilt-free spread on a daily basis and consume regularly to help maintain a healthy intestinal environment. The body is very sensitive to seasonal changes. So, stay at your best with fresh seasonal food and Fermented Green Papaya Enzyme!
