Citrus desserts are very flexible. They can be sweet, tart, or both. They can be light or super-rich. It’s all about what you desire in a dessert. If you want healthy and light, you can do it. If you want rich and sinful, citrus can do that too.
Keto Lemon Bars
Only four net carbs per serving and full of bright lemon flavor, these bars are also simple to make. It’ll take you an hour, and you only need five ingredients: butter, almond flour, powdered erythritol, lemons, and eggs. You’ll enjoy this sweet lemony dessert without a doubt.
Warm Lemon Pudding Cakes
Nothing is better than something warm and creamy on a cold night. These are kind of interesting because they’re not really that bad for you. They are low calorie, and yet they taste rich and fabulous. You will need just seven ingredients to make this delightful dessert in individual ramekins, so that serving this up also seems extra special to the recipient.
Citrus Glazed Basil Cake
This is a delicious cake recipe that is slightly different. It combines lemon, orange, sour cream, and basil to make a delightful and aromatic moist cake that is perfect for any fall day – including but not limited to the holidays. It’ll make your house smell wonderful, and you will want to make it again and again.
Mandarin Orange Jello Salad
This dessert is great because it’s so fast to make. You can make it the night before any event. It travels well and is usually gone within moments of putting it on any buffet table. It only has five to six ingredients depending on the options you choose. It’s light, yet also rich due to the way it’s made. And of course, it’s tasty.
Cranberry Lime Pie
This pie is truly a revelation. If you normally make the regular key lime pie, challenge yourself to mix it up and try this one instead. The addition of lemon and lime zest with cranberries and lime juice makes this an excellent addition to any meal or even a dessert-only party. This pie is also a real beauty due to the color of the cranberries making it look beautiful and rich.
Citrus can be light or rich, but it’s never heavy. It’s always delicious, welcome, and festive. The bright fragrance of citrus in your home will make you feel wonderful while you prepare any of these five delicious citrus desserts.
