Lemon Cheesecake Mousse

Lemon Cheesecake Mousse | Miss in the Kitchen

I have been a little more than obsessed lately with lemon.  I think it is due to me wanting spring and summer to hurry up and get here.  I’ve made Pineapple Lemonade, White Chocolate Lemon Shortbread and now I bring you Lemon Cheesecake Mousse, a most delicious dessert that is so easy to make!

My lemon obsession also crosses over to lip balm and Ice Breakers chewing gum.  I might have a problem.  I just need all things to be extra lemony and sunshine.  Crazy?  Don’t answer that.

Last week was like a whirlwind.  By the end of the week I was feeling so sleep deprived and life didn’t slow down.  Thursday, Valentine’s Day we went to my son’s basketball game, there was another game on Friday and on Saturday my oldest son attended the neighboring school’s dance.  So on Sunday, I finally got around to making a special Valentine’s dinner for the family.

I figure if it is with the ones that you love, it doesn’t actually matter what day it is.  For dessert I made Lemon Cheesecake Mousse.  I scooped the lemony goodness into ramekins and everyone was begging for more.  It was too yummy!

A perfect dessert for my lemon fix and it was so easy to prepare.  I will be hanging onto this one for when summer does finally roll around, no cooking!

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

In a large mixer bowl, beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes on high.  Pour into another bowl and set aside.

Add cream cheese and sugar to mixer bowl and beat at medium speed about 1 minute.  Gradually pour in lemon juice and continue to beat for 2 to 3 minutes or until fluffy.

Fold in whipped cream.  Pour into individual bowls and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Garnish with a lemon slice, a little lemon zest and a sprig of mint.

(If you are going to refrigerate more than an hour before serving, cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.)

I just “LOVE” anything with lemon-(thank you)-I keep at least a dozen lemons on hand at all times and i am always cooking or baking something with them.

Your philosophy about not limiting special meals to certain days made my heart glad. Sounds like every day is Valentine’s Day at your house! I’m hoping you get a break from winter soon.

Lemon is such a favorite flavor for dessert in this family. I can’t wait to put a vegan spin on this one!

I love lemon, too! I’ve definitely got to give this a try. And soon.

I think my mom made a similar recipe growing up. YUM!


Brenda @ a farmgirl's dabbles February 19, 2013 at 9:53 am

This looks both creamy and refreshing – I love it when that happens!

Mmmm, those look like little cups of sunshine. I could use one today!

I love citrus desserts, yum!

I am a lemon dessert FREAK! In fact, I love all creamy citrus desserts. This looks amazing. It puts me in the mood for spring :)

Yeath, the combination is really refreshing and it must be delicious. So this is a great source of inspiration for me right now. A few days ago, my boyfriend gave me an unusual Valentine’s present – he made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school in our native Vancouver – cooking classes for couples so I’m now collecting interesting recipes to come up with during that course. And I’m sure this recipe will most certainly be among the first ones we’ll try together.

It’s an amazing piece of writing in support of all the web people; they will take advantage from it I am sure.
