Description

Lemon Mousse is a light and refreshing dessert that highlights the bright and zesty flavor of fresh lemons. This mousse is perfect for warm weather and special occasions, offering a delicate and airy treat that is both elegant and delicious.

The lemon mousse is made from a combination of fresh lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, eggs, and heavy cream. The lemon juice and zest are mixed with sugar and eggs, then cooked over a double boiler until thick and smooth. This lemon curd is then folded into whipped cream to create a light and airy texture.

Once combined, the mixture is spooned into individual serving glasses or a large bowl and chilled until set. The result is a creamy and smooth dessert with a vibrant lemon flavor and a light, fluffy texture.

Lemon Mousse can be garnished with additional lemon zest, mint leaves, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar for added elegance. This dessert is perfect for dinner parties, summer gatherings, or any occasion where you want to offer a refreshing and sophisticated treat.
