This recipe for a low carb lemon cheesecake mousse is a quick and easy dessert for Spring.  It’s a great light dessert for a dinner party too.

The beauty of this lemon mousse is that can be quickly prepared which is a bonus when you need a dessert with minimal preparation.   I have played around with this mousse using berries and cocoa, but the lemon version is my favourite.

Rather than purchasing ground erythritol I grind mine in my coffee blender.  This is purely because I have to pay to ship any low carb sweetener and a bag of ground would be a total luxury.

An Easy Dessert

If you were really in a rush and needed a creamy dessert (we’ve all been there, so no judgement) you could simply throw all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk away until everything is blended and smooth.  This lemon mousse dessert is really just that simple!  Chill for at least 30 minutes and voila!  A tasty dessert.  This is a great option if you have unexpected guests over too.  Or need a simple dessert that doesn’t require hours in the kitchen with 15 different ingredients.

    Made this and we love it! I think next time I might add a little unflavored gelatin to set it up better (and be reminiscent of a lemon jello cheesecake my mom used to make). I substituted Monk Fruit for the erythritol and it was just so good. Thank you – will be making this at least once a month!

          It’s about just over 1/2 cup per serving. It fitted 4 medium wine glasses if that helps.
