1, 12-oz can fat-free evaporated milk
1 cup Swerve sweetener

½ cup fresh or bottled key lime juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In the bowl of a stand mixer or by hand, whisk first 2 egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the 1 egg white, evaporated milk and swerve.


While whisking, gradually add the xanthan gum. Gently fold the egg whites into the mixture, adding 1/3 of it at a time. Gently spread the mixture in the almond graham crust and bake until set in the center (~20minutes). Brown under the broiler just until the top turns golden.  Allow to cool at least 2 hours before serving.
