LEMON CHEESECAKE MOUSSE — A delicious, no-bake cream cheese based mousse, with a hint of lemon flavor. An easy but elegant dessert ready in 15 minutes!
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 make this a lot. If I want to really make the lemon flavor pop I add lemon extract. Everyone loves this dessert. ~ Murry
We enjoyed ours with fresh berries, but it’s completely delicious on its own. This is the kind of easy dessert recipe that will impress guests, but takes almost no time to make. Fifteen minutes, to be exact!
I like to serve this mousse in individual dessert dishes. Small Mason jars are fun too! You could even add a graham cracker crust in the bottom of your serving dishes.
It also make a great filling for a layer cake, pies, or tarts. It’s such a versatile, pretty, delicious dessert, you’ll find yourself making it again and again.
This dessert is elegant but easy, which makes it perfect for entertaining, special events, or just everyday enjoyment. It’s destined to become your go to dessert recipe for any occasion.
