Lemon ‘n’ Lime Mousse



It’s very similar to the Lemon mousse, but I’ve added lime. Gives it that sweet sourness. It’s a little different and maybe a right way to add another taste experience to a tasty dessert. It goes well after a pepper flavored dark meat meal. It will balance the taste in your mouth.

It’s quite heavy so watch your size in portions.

This dessert is gluten free.

  1. Start by adding heavy cream to a mixer bowl
  2. Add 50 g (1/4th cup) sugar to the heavy cream

  4. Leave in fridge until we use it later
  5. Separate egg yolks from whites
  6. Measure up sugar in a mixing bowl.
  7. Add lemon and lime juice, egg yolks and lemon zest and mix it.
  8. Soak gelatin plates in cold water for 5 minutes. Remember to squeeze water out of them after.
  9. Bring 0.5 dl. (1/4th cup) Water to a boil. Turn off heat and add in gelatin plates. Mix gelatin with the water.
  10. Add this to the egg and sugar mixture.
  11. Add the smooth whipped cream, and egg whites.
  12. Finish by mixing everything for 1 minutes.

Summary Great combination of sweet, sour and "sweet-sour" lime taste. A heavy dessert that takes no time to make. I'm sure you would ace this without much trouble. The need of very few ingredients makes it a low cost dish to make! It's also gluten free.
