Steemit Culinary Challenge #14 Lemon mousse

in food •  9 months ago

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!

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! ; )
