Lemon Paskha

Low Carbohydrate Diet

Sometimes paskha can be flavored with chocolate, nuts, raisins, candied citrus peel or dried fruit, although a "real", authentic paskha never contains these flavorings. This Lemon Paskha version is a refreshing treat for low carb dieters.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar substitute (such as Steviva)
1 cup heavy cream
Peel from 2 lemons, finely shredded

Recipe Notes

  1. Do not allow mixture to boil or ingredients to blend together permanently.
