Raspberry Curd Protein Spread

Protein Raspberry Curd

I made this high protein spread to top my Vanilla Protein Panna Cotta. As I said in my last post for Lemon Curd Protein Spread, you can also use it as a filling for tarts, a high protein spread for some Protein Pancakes, use it in a layer cake, or just spread it on top of some toast with light cream cheese or ricotta. Yum!

(ps: when I made it, I hadn’t discovered erythritol yet, so I used coconut palm sugar which is quite dark. Your protein spread should turn out a much prettier bright pink than mine!)

This sweet and tangy raspberry curd makes a great high protein spread, filling or topping for tarts, layer cakes, pancakes or toast. Yum!
(makes about 2 cups of raspberry curd)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 cups raspberries (fresh or thawed from frozen)
  • ½ cup erythritol
  • 3 packets stevia powder
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil (or you can just use butter)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp plain unflavored whey protein isolate
  • (1/8 cup water – depending what thickness you want. I didn’t use any as I wanted a firmer texture, so if you’re going to use it for tarts or to scoop onto panna cottas, don’t use water. If you want a more spreadable or pourable texture add ⅛ cup)
  1. Use a citrus juicer to extract the juice.
  2. Throw everything except the oil into a magic bullet (in 2 batches) or blender until smooth. You may want to strain it after if you want a smoother texture without seeds, but it’s not vital.
  3. Mix in the oil (you may need to melt it a bit in the microwave first).
  4. Pour everything into a pot and heat on low, whisking constantly, until it thickens – about 10 minutes.
  5. Let it sit out until it’s room temperature, and then cover and refrigerate. It will thicken a bit more as it cools.
  6. Presto, you’ve got a delicious high protein spread that’ll last you for weeks in the fridge. Yay!
