Three Ingredient Lemon Mousse is the perfect easy dessert recipe to celebrate Spring!
Are you so excited for this little bowl of whipped sunshine?! I know I am! These Three Ingredient Lemon Mousse Cups are so delicious – my eight year old declared them “the best thing you ever made yet, Mom!” and ridiculously easy to prepare. And you could actually make them only two ingredients if you can track down some instant lemon pudding. Good luck, though – I couldn’t find it anywhere! Not to worry, though I actually really love the hint of vanilla our pudding added to the mousse.
Did you see how fast that happened? Seriously, like 45 seconds. Maybe. You can absolutely just spoon this into dishes, but I decided to get fancy and put it in piping bags. If you don’t have piping bags but still want to go a little more sophisticated, just stuff it all in a ziploc bag and cut off the corner. Easy peasy!
I served mine in little cups on their own, but this recipe could also be used as a cupcake topping or cake filling! Ohhhhh, or donut filling. Yum. If you serve it individually, use small cups because this is a very rich dessert. Deeeeeliciously rich. And definitely don’t forget the sprinkles. Sprinkles are key.
