Lemon Curd Mousse

Lemon Curd Mousse Regular

The first time I heard of lemon curd, I asked – what’s that?  Then I kept seeing recipes that used lemon curd and it got me curious.

What is this mysterious lemon curd I kept hearing about.  So on a whim, with a bowl full of lemons I decided to try it out!  And holy guacamole, I fell in love.  So did my kids.  It is now a REQUESTED treat in our house!  

When I posted the recipe for it, I had a friend ask the same question I initially did.  What do you use Lemon Curd for?  What is it’s purpose?

Well my friends, here is ONE use for it.  Lemon Curd Mousse!

One simple, delicious, ready in minutes, use for that tasty lemon curd.  That is, if you haven’t eat it all.

Lemon curd itself doesn’t take long to make. 

However you will need it to make this recipe.  It’s best if you make it the day before but if you don’t have that kind of time then a few hours before will do fine.  Or you can buy it from your local grocery store to save even more money!

If you like this then you should also try our Raspberry Fool.  Similar but with raspberries and oh so scrumptious.

This lemon curd mousse is the perfect Spring/Summer dessert.  It takes only minutes to put together, is light, refreshing and oh so good!

  1. I still remember the first time I ever made lemon curd, I could barely cook back then and it scared the bejesus out of me, but boy is it delicious!

    • Emily, it’s so true! The first time is a bit scary. But then once you do it, and realize how easy it is and how INCREDIBLY good it is, there is no going back. You’re hooked and must make it again and again!
