Steemit Culinary Challenge #14 Lemon mousse

6 months ago
66 in food

This recipe is really easy and quick to prepare (I spent more time writing this post than preparing the dessert and washing the dishes).

The lemon mousse is a great option if you're having guests at your place!!

I decided to enter on the SCC14 because ...

When life gives you lemons...you know, make a lemon mousse!!

We usually have lots of lemons at our home because there is always someone in the family that has lemon trees and offers us...so it's great!!

Ingredients:

  • 387 grams condensed milk (1 can)
  • 200 ml heavy whipping cream (chantilly)
  • 3 lemons

Material:

  • Electric mixer (for the chantilly)
  • Grater to zest the lemons
  • Squeezer

Preparation

  1. Wash the lemons and zest the peel. Cut them in halves​ and squeeze their juice.
  2. Place the condensed milk in a bowl and add the lemon juice. Stir carefully.
  3. With the electric mixer beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form (don’t overbeat the cream);
  4. Add the cream gently to the previous mixture.
  5. Place the mousse in a serving bowl, cover with the lemon zest and refrigerate for 1 hour.

It's ready to serve!!

Hope you enjoyed!!

P.S. I would like to add @shadowspub recommendation: "To remove as much of the spray residue as possible from your lemons, place them in a bowl of warm water with a tablespoon of vinegar added then gently rub the skin. Rinse with cold water and enjoy the zest." I didn't need to have them properly washed because they came from family lemon tree!

How great to have homegrown lemons like that, from your family! I really like recipes with just a few ingredients. This would be fun to make -- and eat! Good luck in the challenge!

Good deal! My entries usually are pretty cheap -- just plants from my yard, mostly. So even when they don't win or get post rewards, I still come out ahead, even at 50 cents, lol! ; )
