Lemon Cheesecake Mousse

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

When it comes to cooking and baking, the most important tools in my kitchen are a good stand mixer and a good hand mixer. From whipping cream to mixing bread and big batches of cookie dough, I use my mixers for just about anything that needs mixing, like this easy Lemon Cheesecake Mousse.


I recently replaced my old hand mixer with the Hamilton Beach SoftScrape 6 Speed Hand Mixer and I couldn’t be happier. I especially love that the SoftScrape mixer comes with several types of beater attachments.

The first thing I made in the Hamilton Beach 6 Speed Stand Mixer was my favorite chocolate chip cookie dough. It’s a big recipe that requires a lot of mixing, so I knew if the Hamilton Beach stand mixer could pass my cookie dough test, it could mix just about anything.

It passed with flying colors! I was especially impressed that there weren’t any unmixed dry ingredients left at the bottom of the bowl when I finished mixing.


Since then, I’ve been using the Hamilton Beach stand mixer regularly. In addition to the traditional 6 speeds, it has a special fold setting, which was just what I needed for adding the whipped cream to my lemon cheesecake mousse.

Trust me, you want the recipe for this mousse! It’s super simple and there’s no baking involved, so with a little help, it’s something even kids could make.

We enjoyed ours with fresh berries, but it’s completely delicious on its own. It would also make a great filling for a layer cake.

  9. I want to make this recipe for lemon cheesecake dessert and would like to know if you had used a pastry bag to fill the glasses and if so what tip did you use ? Your presentation is flawless!
    P.S. forgot to ask what glassware used and what size,high ball,shot glasses etc.Thanks!

  10. Kind regards from the Netherlands. We’re gonna try this recipe in a day or two. Can’t wait… Thanks!

  11. Any idea how far in advance you could make these? I want to make them for my daughter’s birthday (she loves lemon flavored desserts) but am not sure if it would be okay to make them the night before. What do you think?

  12. Oh, I forgot to add earlier… I used the extra dessert as a topping for cupcakes…VERY versatile.

  13. All the wonderful things you can do with a Hamilton Beach stand Mixer, and this delicious sounding Mousse recipe is just one of them.

  14. it looks great love to oun one of those.i could do so much with this.

  15. Wow
    What a great easy elegant dessert and would be even easier with that beautiful efficient mixer…
    Would love it..

  16. As I was reading the recipe it said it serves 8. are the 8 servings for the same size shot glass you used? If so I may need to double this recipe. Looks delicious and I may want to serve it in a bigger portion such as a wine glass for my guests.

  17. I would love to try this as a filling for a vanilla cake I’m making. Do u think it would be appropriate???as a mousse filling?? Thanks

  18. Is the lemon pie filling just a cup of the powder or do you add a cup of the pudding after it’s cooked?

  19. Dawn Leonis says:

    Can I use whipped cream instead of whipping cream?

  20. CaribeTraveller says:

    This is my new “go-to” simple dessert. I serve in 2 oz. cups.

  21. I make this a lot. Often I substitute a dense plain yogurt like Siggies. If I want to really make the lemon flavor pop I add lemon extract. Everyone loves this dessert.

  22. This will be perfect for the cake that I am making for my parents anniversary! I can’t wait to try this.

  23. Does the powdered sugar serve as any other purpose than to sweeten or do you need it for bulk too? I would like to avoid using it if possible. Thanks.
