Lemon Mousse – Refreshing and Light Tasting!

lemon desserts recipe

We are lovers of lemons in our family!  I cook and bake with them constantly..

Lately I’ve been on the lookout for great lemon dessert recipes and I came across this one from Ina Garten.  Just like the reviews stated – it was fab! Light, bright and refreshing.  Ina puts it all in a big bowl to serve but I chose to serve it in individual glasses.

Oh – and if you want to see Ina make it – here’s her short (3 minutes) video demonstrating it.

Lemon and Lime Wedding Inspiration
