Even after filling macarons with my Meyer lemon curd and giving a jar of it away, I still had a lot of lemon curd on my hands. Luckily, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy it: mixed in yogurt, on toast, straight out of the jar with a spoon. Still, I was getting a little sick of my go-to ways to eat lemon curd, until I discovered a new way: easy lemon mousse!
Seriously, this 5 minute recipe couldn’t get easier. It only has 2 ingredients: COOL WHIP whipped topping and lemon curd. Mix them together for a great spring or summer dessert – it’s refreshing, creamy and has a lovely lemon tang.
I kept it simple and served it with fresh berries, a dollop of COOL WHIP and fresh mint. If you want to get a bit more fancy, you can double the recipe and pour it into a graham cracker pie crust.
5 Minute Lemon Mousse
Makes 2 servings
- 1/2 cup homemade lemon curd (or store-bought lemon curd)
- 1 cup COOL WHIP whipped topping (or homemade whipped cream)

Combine lemon curd and COOL WHIP whipped topping in a medium bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined. Serve with fresh berries in 2 wine glasses or bowls. Garnish with a dollop of COOL WHIP and a sprig of fresh mint, if desired.
