Lemon Mousse with fresh Strawberries

Lemon mousse

My oven has broken and parents and in-laws were over for a bbq, you can’t have guests for dinner and not give them dessert, I’m sure there is a law against it so I had to make something that would be quick (I was short of time), tasty, look impressive and not use an oven….I love lemon desserts in the summer, I find them lighter and refreshing, especially after a bbq, so I decided to make lemon mousse with fresh stawberries. I got 6 nice glasses out and placed crushed digestive biscuits in the bottom of the glasses (some mix it with butter but I prefer it without and it is quicker).

Mousse mix:
300ml double cream
218g condensed milk
1 lemon (rind and juice)

Whisk the double cream until soft peaks.
Add the condensed milk and whisk again.
Add the lemon rind and juice, whisk until the mixture is thick and smooth (1/2min).
Place the mousse in the glasses and leave in the fridge to set for 1-2hours, they can also be prepared the day before and left in the fridge over night.

Just before eating, top up the glasses with sliced strawberries and serve.

I used 1 part biscuit base, 3parts mousse and 2 parts strawberries.

We ended up having a lovely evening and both the bbq and the dessert were successful 🙂
