Lovely Lemon Mousse

This is a personal fave of mine, I make it all the time, quick, easy, refreshing and delicious. I make it all the time, but I can never find the recipe (I’ve just had to call my mum for the hundredth time to ask for it). I have now written it down, but I thought I would pop it here as well as much for me, the next time I want to make it, as for you!

I don’t think mousses should be made with gelatine (I am not a fan of jelly… never have been) and you shouldn’t need it and most importantly it means that veggies are missing out on this deliciousness.

I made this for our first supper club so this is well overdue!

This is embarrassingly easy (which is why I make it so often!):

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 284ml double cream (you could use soya cream if you are dairy free too)
  • 6oz caster sugar
  • 2 egg whites

Method

  • Add the cream, lemon zest and sugar to a large bowl
  • Whisk until thick
  • Add the juice of the lemon and whisk until the mixture thickens further
  • Whisk the egg whites until soft peaks
  • Fold the egg whites into the mixture careful not to knock all of the air
  • pop into glasses or ramikins, chill and serve
