Raspberry Lemon Mousse Parfaits

We’re still waiting on sunshine over here and ever since I made Lemon Curd I’ve been on a bit of a lemon kick.  I’ve been noshing on sunshine for days now and it’s still not appearing in the sky.  *sigh*  Oh well, at least these overcast days are delicious!  If you’ve made up a batch of lemon curd and are not sure what to do with it – here is the answer.

These Raspberry Lemon Mousse Parfaits are perfect to make ahead and easy to assemble.  I’ve made them twice now and I still can’t get them out of my mind.  They’re bright, light in texture and flavor and are a lovely dessert for after a heavy meal.

  1. Yum! OK, I’ve done this before for breakfast, but I use vanilla or greek yogurt instead of the cream. I find blueberries also a really nice combo with lemon.
