Like my Easy Lemon Cream Pie Recipe, this simple recipe is a perfect make-ahead dessert that can be whipped up the day before and then chilled in the fridge until you are ready to serve it.

It’s so light and airy, your guest will love this decadent dessert that tastes like you slaved away for hours in the kitchen, yet it can be made in less than 5 minutes – completely FROM SCRATCH. In my opinion, making a fancy dessert doesn’t need to be difficult! A few simple ingredients and you have a dessert that everyone will love.

This Lemon Curd Mousse is so smooth and bursting with flavor! An easy-to-make dessert that can be made in advance.

I’m so excited for all the warm weather flavors, like berries and everything lemon. This chilled mousse is perfect for spring and summer days! Tangy, sweet, and so creamy – a great summer dessert. I garnished the mousse with fresh raspberries, mint leaves, and a small lemon slice but you could use any berries or add a whipped cream swirl on top.

Aren’t these little desserts pretty?

The best thing about this mousse besides its deliciousness is that it’s made with simple ingredients. This lemon mousse recipe is made without gelatin and without raw eggs. The lemon curd gives it its lemon flavor and cream makes it fluffy and airy. It doesn’t need to be cooked, just whip it and put it in the fridge. So easy!

How to make Lemon Curd Mousse

To make this easy mousse with lemon curd you need only three ingredients: Heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and Lemon Curd. You can find Lemon Curd at most grocery stores but it’s also easy to make it from scratch (here is my recipe for Easy Lemon Curd).

Combine these three ingredients in a bowl and whip until stiff. To make the mousse whip better it’s best to use really chilled cream. You could also chill your bowl and the whisk in the fridge or freezer before you start to make this lemon mousse. Whip the mousse until it is stiff then divide the mousse between glasses (my glasses are from Zara Home and hold 7 oz).

This recipe makes about 1/2 cup of mousse per glass which I find enough for a light summer dessert. Serve this lemon mousse chilled straight from the fridge, it tastes best when it is really cold. Making this dessert one day in advance is perfect for parties or special occasions. Just chill it in the fridge until you want to enjoy it! This lemon mousse lasts in the fridge for about 2 days.

This easy Lemon Curd Mousse is served in individual glasses, perfect for dinner parties!

    Maybe you know this, but Lemon Curd itself is made with eggs traditionally, and every store brand I have seen contains eggs. I’m not so sure that you should say it is made without eggs only because it’s a bit misleading.

      Thank you for your comment, Jen! Yes, I know that Lemon Curd is made with eggs. What I wanted to say is that this mousse is made without raw eggs, I should have made that clearer. Many mousse recipes use raw egg whites but I often don’t feel comfortable serving raw eggs to guests. – Julia
