I am loving lemon these days. It must be summer.  I love chocolate, yes, but every now and then I am telling you, lemon just tastes so refreshing and tangy and yummy.  Tim’s mom has a huge lemon tree in her yard that is just overflowing with the most awesome Meyer lemons.  One of the (many) perks of living in Southern California.

So, I am going to make a couple yummy recipes using these FREE lemons! :-)  This recipe, however, did not use even one of these yummy lemons.  I took a shortcut.

This is an easy easy quick dessert you can do if someone is coming over and you want just a little something something.  So delicious, tangy lemony and so easy.

Did I mention easy?

The first time I made this I doubled the recipe (approximately, might have a little more than doubled it) and put it in a store bought pie crust for quick lemon mousse pie.  It needed to chill a little longer than I chilled it for, but it still tasted yummy.  I know that if I froze it, it would taste heavenly.

This time I just made up a little bit for a quick yummy dessert.  It was a hit!

I will be making this over and over.  I might even make my own lemon curd someday soon. For now, this satisfies my craving for tangy lemony light creamy goodness.

Easy Lemon Mousse

  • 1/2 cup lemon curd or lemon fruit filling (homemade or store bought)
  • 1 cup whipped cream or Cool Whip
  • whatever else you want – strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, mint leaves, for garnish

Combine lemon curd and whipped cream (or Cool Whip) in a medium bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.  Serve with fresh berries in 2 martini glasses or bowls.   Garnish with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh berries, if desired.

That’s it.

I’m telling you, try it.  You’ll love how something so easy can taste so good.
