Easy Vegan Lemon Curd

6 ingredients and 10 minutes to make. Serve with pastries, layer between cakes or dollop onto non-dairy ice cream. Makes a great homemade gift, lovely for Mother's day or breakfast in bed. 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 8 (makes about 1 cup)


  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ cup non-dairy milk (such as soy or almond)
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest (from about 1 lemon)
  • teaspoon turmeric (optional for colour)


  • In a small pot, whisk together the sugar and cornstarch. Now mix in the non-dairy milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, and turmeric. Put over medium heat, whisking frequently, until the curd thickens, about 5 minutes. You may need to whisk vigorously as it thickens to ensure a smooth curd.
  • Remove from heat and pour into a heat safe container to cool. Enjoy warm or store in the fridge for up to 1 week. It will thicken more as it cools.
