Frozen Lemon Mousse


I love lemons!  They remind me of my mom.  She used to love everything lemon, from frosted lemon bars to lemon yogurt.  So whenever I make something like this I think whether or not she would have liked it.  I found this frozen lemon mousse recipe at Real Simple.  

This recipe may not be that "simple" but there are very few ingredients.  You get a strong lemon flavor with the use of only one lemon. 

You start by putting fresh squeezed lemon juice, egg yolks, and sugar in a pot and heat it up.  Just make sure that you are continually whisking as you go.

This was my first time making this and when I combined the egg yolks with the lemon juice and heated it up I don't think I was whisking enough and got a whole bunch of cooked egg chunks.  

Later when the recipe says to strain the mixture I couldn't because me hubby had left my strainer at his little brother's house.  In the end my mousse was delicious only it had tons of tiny chunks of cooked egg.  

Murphy Man helped me out with the whipping of the cream.  Then he insisted on licking the beaters.  

Once the lemon mixture has set in the refrigerator then you can fold in your whipped cream.  Pop it all in the freezer for a couple of hours and then enjoy your frozen treat.  I can't wait to make this again.  Hopefully, with a strainer.  This makes a great dessert for friends after a barbecue on a hot day.

Be sure to stop back on Wednesday July 28th for the Recipe Swap and link up your favorite fresh fruit recipe.
