Keto Lemon Pie Nutrition
Wondering about carbs in lemon meringue pie? Normally it’s very high with regular recipes made with flour and sugar, but you’ll love my answer for this version.
Just 3 grams net carbs and 231 calories per slice! It will easily fit in your keto lifestyle. Try it after a heavier meal to balance out the richness.
How To Store Sugar-Free Meringue Pie
You can make keto lemon meringue ahead of time if you like. You can go through as many of these steps as you like ahead of time:
- Pre-bake the crust ahead of time. Keep it in the fridge for 3-5 days.
- Make the filling ahead of time. Keep it in the fridge for 1-2 days.
- Assemble the crust and filling. Pour the filling into the crust and store in the fridge. Add the meringue and bake the day-of if possible.
- If you really want to, store the entire prepared pie in the fridge. However, you may get condensation on the meringue this way.
But can you freeze low carb lemon meringue pie? While it’s doable, it’s not recommended because the texture would change. If you want to freeze parts ahead of time, it’s best to just make the crust and freeze that.
