Lemon Mousse with Blackberries

It occurs to me that I haven’t posted a dessert recipe in a while. To be honest, dessert just hasn’t been on my mind. It’s summertime, and my brain is full of recipes for the grill, burgers and sandwiches, and salads—things I associate with this time of year. I also associate berries and lemonade with the summer, so this Lemon Mousse with Blackberries seems like the perfect summertime dessert. The fact that it has only three ingredients is a huge bonus. Let’s find out if it’s as good as it sounds!

A simple summer masterpiece with only three ingredients.

The Ingredients

I had blackberries leftover from the Sparkling Blackberry Tea Cocktail I made recently, so all I had to buy was the lemon curd and whipping cream. I knew whipping cream wouldn’t be a problem, but I’ve never bought lemon curd. It turns out that it’s not hard to find at all. My regular grocery store had a 12.7-ounce jar for $4.79. That’s enough to make this recipe twice.

The Process

Making this recipe was as easy as I thought it would be. Here’s how my time was spent:

  • 13 minutes to prep
  • 2+ hours to chill
  • 2 hours 13 minutes total

I used a stand mixer and spent about 10 minutes whipping the cream into stiff peaks. While that was happening, I weighed out 6 ounces of lemon curd.

Once the whipped cream was ready, I used a spatula to fold in the lemon curd. From there, I added the mousse to coupe glasses, covered them with plastic wrap, and popped them into the refrigerator.

The recipe says to refrigerate for at least 2 hours, but I left mine overnight. The next day, I added the blackberries and took some photos of the finished product while trying to resist gobbling them all up!

One thing to note is the number of servings isn’t listed on the recipe. I divided the mousse into 3 moderate servings. I think I could have made it 4 servings, but they would have been very small.

Accurate Time(s)
For me, this Lemon Mousse with Blackberries is the summertime dessert. With only three ingredients, it's easy to make in less than 15 minutes. The result was sweet, creamy, lemony goodness with a touch of fresh blackberries. A stand mixer or a hand mixer is necessary equipment, along with some small glasses or dessert dishes. I was a little disappointed that I was only able to get 3 servings out of the recipe, but it would be easy to double it if you need more than that. Overall, a lovely summertime dessert recipe with only a few ingredients that's easy to make. Definitely a Pinterest success!
