Base Layer
  • ⅔ cup (75 g) blanched finely ground almond flour, plus additional for serving
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, Confectioners 
  • ⅓ cup room temperature coconut oil
Cream Cheese Layer
  • 1 cup (260 g) plain cream cheese*
  • ¼ cup coconut cream 
  • ½ cup (105 g) Swerve, Confectioners 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

*dairy-free or regular cream cheese will work great.

Lemon Layer
  • ⅔ cup (130 g) Swerve, Granular
  • 3 lemons, juice from 2 to create ¼ cup juice, zest from 1, and slices from another for serving 
  • 2 tbsp water 
  • Pinch sea salt 
  • 2 tsp arrowroot starch


Base Layer
  1. Mix the almond flour, Swerve, and coconut oil in a medium bowl until incorporated. Don’t be afraid to use your hands as it’s easier for you!
  2. Divide mixture into 6 equal parts and press each piece into the bottom of the serving jars
Cream Cheese Layer
  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until incorporated.
  2. Divide into 6 equal parts and scoop into the serving jars. (If you don’t want the cream cheese going up the side, you can transfer the mixture into a piping bag or plastic bag with the tip removed to squeeze the mixture into the jars.)
Lemon Layer
  1. Place Swerve, ¼ cup lemon juice, zest from 1 lemon, water, and sea salt in a small saucepan.
  2. Cook on medium until it reaches a light simmer.
  3. Transfer a ¼ cup of the mixture into a small mug or bowl. Add the arrowroot starch and whisk. Once fully mixed, add back to the saucepan and whisk for another 1 minute.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 20 minutes before adding to the jars.
  5. Sprinkle each with a dust of almond flour and top with a lemon wedge. Serve immediately or store in the fridge for up to 48 hours before serving. Allow to sit on the counter for 20 minutes before serving.

Makes 6 servings.

    Not sure how you arrived at 4 net carbs. It says 44 g to start with. Minus the 4 g for fiber, minus the 16 g for the Swerve. In my addition that leaves 24 g per serving. What am I missing from this? I really want to try it but not if it truly is 24 g per serving.Thanks!

    • Swerve

      Hi Diane, Thank you for visiting our website and bringing this to our attention. We had a typo on the amount of Swerve in the recipe. The correct amount of net carbs is 4g per serving!

  • Diane

    I have another question. What size jars are those? Thanks!

    • Swerve

      Hi Diane, these are 4 oz jars!
