  • 300 g milk
  • 8 g gelatin
  • 150 g heavy cream

  • In a saucepan, bring together 10g lemon zest and 300g milk, over medium heat, cook until lightly bubbles. Sift once; add into the egg yolks mixture while quickly whisking them together. Pour the liquid back into the saucepan, heat and whisk until lightly thickened. Transfer to a bowl, add in softened gelatin, and mix until well combined. Set aside. You can soften the gelatin in iced water.

  • Pour the liquid into the ramekins; let them set in the fridge to cool for at least 4 hours. Garnish with lemon slices and lemon zest and serve.


  • Quality of Lemons: Use fresh lemons for the best flavor.
  • Whipping the Cream: Ensure the cream is whipped to soft peaks for a light and airy texture.
  • Gentle Mixing: Carefully fold the lemon mixture into the whipped cream to maintain the mousse’s fluffiness.
  • Chilling Time: Allow sufficient chilling time for the mousse to set properly.
  • Serving Suggestions: Garnish with lemon zest or a thin lemon slice for an elegant finish.
