Keto Sugar Free Lemon Dream Mousse: a heavenly dessert with only 3.5g carbs per serving.
Ketohusband has a new favourite. Yep! My Chocolate Tiramisú held the # 1 spot for several weeks, but it has now dropped to # 2. Who’d have thought it! Just like Despacito, it appeared to be insuperable, along with my original and best (in my view) Classic Tiramisú recipe. But oh no. All good things come to an end, and so it did. Keto Sugar Free Lemon Dream Mousse is now the best dessert on the planet. In the ketohusband Official Keto Top 10 Desserts Chart, at least 😀
So why is this dessert such a hit? Well, it ticks all the boxes: Light? √Check. Creamy? √Check. Citrusy? √Check. Pretty? √Check. Refreshing? √Check. Sweet? √Check. Keto-Friendly? √Check. What is there not to like?
I have to admit it. I’m pretty pleased with this one too. Granted, it’s not as low carb as I like my desserts to be. But that’s the price to pay for a citrus based pudding that’s as dreamy, as smooth and as sweet but tangy as this.
Easy Peasy Sweet and Dreamy.
It most certainly is all of the above. Plus, as an extra bonus, it couldn’t be more simple to make. No cooking or baking involved. No bain-marie. Not even a microwave blast. Zilch. Nada. Rien. Niente. Zero.
Want to know what’s involved? Cut. Squeeze. Grate. Whip. Mix. That’s IT!!!!!
Then you have to WAIT. Can’t help that. Spoon desserts generally need to set. Whether they’ve been baked or not. So, like it or lump it, you cannot just dive in. Sorry. I know it’s cruel, but you really have to be patient.
Jokes aside, the waiting is necessary to allow the mousse to be nicely cold and set, and for the lemon flavour to intensify. Even if you don’t believe me right now, you will when you go and grab the next serving tomorrow and taste the flavour intensity for yourself.
Lemons are a most fascinating fruit. Did you know they’ve been used for centuries for all sorts of things, from lip reddening to scurvy treatment and liver cleansing? Do you know how to tell the good from the bad? Or how to get the most juice out of one? No? I didn’t either, until recently.
