Easy Lemon Mousse Recipe

Easy Lemon Mousse Recipe

If you didn’t know, I like easy. I don’t mind spending time in the kitchen but I’m no Top Chef. I need short ingredient lists and easy to follow directions. I can’t be the only one! And that’s why I love this easy Lemon Mousse recipe from Krista at Everyday Mom’s Meals!

It has 3 ingredients and you can easily change up the flavor by changing the pie filling you use! Oh, and you can cut calories and fat by using sugar-free pie filling and lite Cool Whip. If you know me then you know I love any recipe that lets me make some of my favorite swaps!

Make your own Lemon Mousse

What you need:

  • 1 (21oz) can lemon pie filling
  • 1 (8oz) tub Cool Whip
  • 2 tsp grated lemon zest, plus extra for garnish
  • Lemon slices for garnish

What you do:

  • In a large bowl combine pie filling and Cool Whip.
  • Stir or whisk well to combine.
  • Stir in lemon zest.
  • Chill for 2 hours.
  • Garnish with extra zest and lemon slices.

What easy recipe do you use as your backup when you need something quick?

  1. Seriously??? It looks like it was way harder than that! LOL I’m totally trying it! I think I’m going to use blueberry though…

    • Hi Ronni! I’m glad you like the recipe. I think blueberry would be a great substitution. If I can give you a couple tips, 1. Break up the pie filling a little with a fork or potato masher so it’s not quite so chunky and 2. Still add the lemon zest! The flavor combo is great, and it will brighten it up :)

  2. Yum! I love all things lemon and this looks very easy : )
