Delicate Extra Virgin Olive Oil Custard With Lime

This quick and easy custard is pleasantly tarty with just enough sweetness. Watch the ingredients come together quickly in a blender.


  • 3 large eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoon lime zest plus ½ cup fresh juice (from about 3 large limes)
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup De Rustica Estate Collection Delicate extra-virgin olive oil

How to Make It

Step 1

Process eggs and sugar in a blender, 2 minutes. Add zest, juice, and vanilla and process 3 minutes more. With blender running, gradually drizzle in olive oil. Continue to process on high until the mixture is smooth, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a double boiler and whisk it over simmering water until it thickens

Step 2

Transfer custard to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap pressed directly on surface. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Serve or keep refrigerated up to 3 days.

We like serving the custard in cute little glasses and garnishing with some extra lime zest.
