Lemon Mousse

When life gives you lemons, make lemon mousse.

Jump to recipe below.

Lemon is a flavour that I adore and lemon bakes are ones that are super easy to do.

A lemon mousse is not always easy to get right but when the flavour balance right it certainly does taste very good.

This 3 ingredient lemon mousse is a super easy sweet treat to make whilst still being super delicious. These can be made and eaten within 1 hour of making them or the mousses can be left in the freezer/fridge for longer if that suits.

The mousses can last in the freezer/fridge for about 4 weeks but are best consumed within the first few days.

Recipe – Lemon Mousse

Prep time: 15 minutesCook time: 18-20 minutes
Serves: 12 Category: Cupcake


  • 300g good quality lemon curd
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 300ml double cream


  1. Place all ingredients into a large bowl and beat with an electric whisk until it holds its shape (I use my kitchen aid mixer for this), this can take up to 10 minutes.
  2. Whilst the ingredients are whisking, prepare glasses that the mousse’s will be placed in, for me this made about 12 smaller mousse’s.
  3. Divide the mousse between the glasses and place in freezer for 30 minutes – 1 hour to set.


  • If leaving the mousse’s in the freezer for longer than 30 minutes, ensure to cover them so that the top of the mousse remains fresh.
  • The mousse’s can be set in the fridge but this will take a little bit longer (2 hours +).
