Easy Lemon Mousse

by Laura

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. It would be perfect garnished with a strawberry, raspberry, lemon zest, or lemon slice. You could even add some of mint leaves.

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!

Have a question …. can this recipe once it’s made be put into a ice cream cake ? In other words can you have this frozen ?

This looks easy! I’ve never made any kind of mousse because I assumed it was a lot of work. Thanks for the recipe!
