Give the regular Lemon Meringue Pie a twist and try it with raspberries in this delicious low-carb recipe!

It's the perfect cake for Valentine's Day or any other special occasions. It's dairy-free and as all my recipes, it's gluten-free and low in carbs. If you like this recipe, also try these Healthy Valentine Hearts!

How To Make Keto Meringue Pie

First you will need to make the sugar-free raspberry curd which is has a nice balance of sweet-tart flavours from raspberries. Feel free to adjust the amount of sweeteners to your linking here. Instead of the listed sweeteners, you can try other healthy low-carb sweeteners from this list. The reason I'm using both Erythritol and stevia is to mask the aftertaste some of the sweeteners may have.

The next step is the Sweet Keto Pie Crust. You can either use 8 mini tart pans like these, or a regular 9-inch tart pan. In either case, pans with removable bottoms work best for this recipe.I them used a dough roller to flatten the dough, and ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down.

Finally, you will prepare the meringue topping which is made with egg whites, low-carb sweetener, cream of tartar and a pinch of salt. I'm using my Kenwood mixer to whip it up but you can use a hand mixer. You can use any powdered low-carb sweetener here but do not substitute the sweetener in the meringue for liquid stevia as it won't work.

What Other Fruits Can I Use in My Meringue Pie?

Absolutely! Try strawberries, blueberries or blackberries. I made mine with strawberries and just added about 1/4 cup more water. You can also make your meringue pie the traditional way, with Keto Lemon Curd.

Ingredients (makes 8 servings)

Raspberry curd filling
Pie crust
Meringue topping


  1. First, prepare the raspberry curd filling. Place the raspberries into a saucepan. Add the stevia. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  2. Add lemon zest and lemon juice (or water). Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  3. Place the mixture into a fine-mesh sieve and push through using a spoon or a spatula. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  4. Discard the seeds, place the smooth raspberry mixture back in the pan and add the powdered Erythritol and set aside. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  5. Meanwhile, separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Place the egg yolks into a bowl and mix with arrowroot powder until smooth. Make sure there are no lumps before you add it to the blended raspberries. (Note: If using gelatin powder, dissolve it in 2 tablespoons of water before mixing with the egg yolks and raspberries.) Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  6. Add the egg yolk mixture to the raspberries and process well. Bring to boil over low-medium heat while stirring at all times. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  7. When you see bubbles, cook for one more minute and take off the heat. Add the butter and stir until smooth. Transfer the curd into a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressing it tightly to the surface of the curd to prevent a skin from forming on top. Chill in the fridge for 11/2 - 2 hours. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  8. Meanwhile, prepare the pie crust. Preheat the oven to 175 °C/ 350 °F (fan assisted), or 195 °C/ 380 °F (conventional). Mix all the dry ingredients - the almond flour, whey protein and powdered Erythritol. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  9. Add the egg and coconut oil and combine well. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  10. Place the dough into a deep 8 to 9 inch non-stick tart pan with a removable bottom and press up the sides to create a "bowl" shape. Use a dough roller if needed. (Note: Ideally, use a baking paper as a lining in the bottom to ensure that the crust doesn't get stuck to it.) Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  11. Place baking paper on top and use ceramic baking beans to weight the dough down. You will need them to prevent the dough from rising and creating air bubbles, especially if you are making a large pie. Place the pie into the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes and keep an eye on it, as the almond flour may easily get burnt. When done, remove from the oven and let it chill down. Using a sharp knife, slightly lift the edges of the crust. Reduce the temperature in the oven to 160 °C/ 320 °F (fan assisted), or 180 °C/ 355 °F (conventional). Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  12. Place the egg whites in a mixer and and add cream of tartar throughout the beating process. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  13. Add powdered sweetener and beat until the egg whites form into firm peaks. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  14. Remove the raspberry curd from the fridge and place on top of the baked pie crust. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  15. Spread the curd evenly and top with beaten egg white meringue. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  16. Place in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. When done, set aside and let it cool down before placing the pie in the fridge. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie
  17. Once chilled, the pie can be served. Enjoy! To store, refrigerate for up to 5 days. Low-Carb Raspberry Meringue Pie

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

This pie is absolutely delicious! Thanks for such a delicious summer treat, I will make this again!

Thank you so much Katy!

Looks lovely! Definitely going to make it. Can I ask 3 things please:
1) what size pan/tin did you use? (Want to make sure I have enough pastry to go into my big one!)
) I can't have lemon. What can I use instead of lemon zest? Or is it ok to leave it out?
3) For the whey protein can I use the Sunwarrior Warrior blend raw vegan protein I already have?
It has about 2.5g carb per 25g - so is this more carbs I'd need to account for in the recipe?
Thanks heaps!

Thank you Vicky!
1) The pan I used is 21 cm (8 inch) - bottom, 25 cm (10 inch) - top, and 5 cm (2 inch) deep.
2) Yes, you can leave the lemon zest out (or use lime zest or orange zest)
3) I haven't tried this protein powder but I suppose it should work. You can even omit the protein powder (it will affect the texture but it will still work). It's slightly more carbs than mine but it won' be significant in this recipe.
I hope you like it! 😊

Sorry Martina, just seen it makes 8 portions.  

No problem! 😊 I hope you liked the pie, Holly!

This looks amazing, I see net carbs are 6.5 per portion, how many portions are in the pie please?  I have all the ingredients so am gearing up to make it this weekend!  😊

Do you need to use whey or protein? I would love to make this!

Hi Ace, I used whey protein isolate (not whey). I hope this helps 😊

This sounds lovely, but I have Colitis so can't eat Raspberries. Is there a recipe amount for  Lemon instead (like traditional lemon meringue) that I could use please?  I'm new to the site (happily so!) and am still paging through all the lovely recipes, so sorry if I sound lazy.  Thank you. 😊

Hi Caryn, thank you! Yes, you can use lemon curd instead - recipe is here: The Best Low-Carb Lemon Curd

What can I use if I don't have the ceramic beans to weight it down?

I think that some people use rice or regular beans instead so you can use that if you like 😊

Martina, I've just sat down and eaten a slice of this work of art. Thank you for the recipe, please keep them coming 😊

Thank you Emz, I'm so happy you liked it 😊

With my wgt loss definitely stalled now, should I eat nuts (almond flour) and fruit (berries)? Or should I just skip this for now and keep to no treats?

Hélène  it's different for everyone but I think you should skip low-carb treats until you start losing weight again. What works for me and many others is to avoid snacking on nuts & cheese and eat 2-3 regular meals a day. Meat, non-starchy vegetables, eggs and avocados.

This raspberry meringue pie look so delicious - and perfect for Valentines too. Wish I had a slice now!

Thanks so much Thalia!

It looks soooo delicious. definately want to try that!
i am just a tiny bit confused about the cream of tartar, seems the measurement has gone lost... 1/4 Tbsp woud be my guess... or is it tsp?

Sorry I missed that! Just 1/4 tsp is enough 😊 Thanks and let me know how it went!

Recipe looks great! I will make it this weekend.  Thank you.

Thank Angi, hope you like it!
