How to Make Key Lime Mousse

Today I decided to make key lime mousse because we had some ripe limes on our potted lime tree.

Here's how to make it.

Key Lime Mousse


  • 1/2 a T of lime zest
  • 1/2 a cup of lime juice
  • 1/2 a cup of sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 6 T of butter
  • 3/4 a cup of cream

 Whisk together zest, juice, sugar, and eggs in a small saucepan.

Cut the butter into small pieces and put it in the saucepan.

Cook and stir over medium-low heat until thick, or around 8 minutes.

Remove from heat and place in an ice bath until cool, stirring occasionally

While the custard is cooling, whip the cream into stiff peaks.

After it's cool, force the lime custard through a fine sieve.

Add the whipped cream into the custard and gently fold it through.

Let it chill for 2 hours before serving.  Serve and enjoy!
