Easy Lemon Mousse

It is Lemon Week here at RMK. I am a girl who loves lemon. So I put together a week full of recipes. They will also work to make for mom for Mother’s Day too. First up is a simple easy lemon mousse. It is light, creamy, and has a luscious lemon flavor. So light and refreshing!

This mousse is made by beating some whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks. Then you beat some cream cheese and sugar together until well blended. Once that is complete you gradually pour in lemon juice while mixing until mixture is light and fluffy.

Next, just gently fold in whipped cream until well combined. Pour or pipe into individual dishes and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. It would be perfect to garnish with a strawberry, raspberry, lemon zest, or lemon slice. You could even add some of mint leaves. Just make it look pretty!

This mousse would also work well inside a pie crust for an easy lemon mousse pie! Whether you use a traditional pie crust or graham cracker crust it would make a tasty filling!
