Lemon & Coconut Cream Mousse + Another Blendtec Giveaway!

coconut cream dream

I have had a couple of recipes rattling around in my computer for awhile now that I have wanted to try out. Not surprisingly, one of them involves LEMON. :-)

The first one is a recipe for lemon pudding that I adapted to make in the blender….and the other is more a “method” than a recipe for making whipped coconut cream!

One day I got the brilliant idea to combine the two and ended up with the creamiest, dreamiest concoction I think I’ve ever tasted – Lemon & Coconut Cream Mousse! Oh my!

Let’s start with the pudding:

Blender Lemon Pudding

adapted from The Galley Gourmet

Ingredients

3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup cornstarch
2 1/2 cups half and half
3 egg yolks, lightly beaten
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter, at room temperature

Place all ingredients in a blender except butter and process on high until smooth.
Pour into saucepan. Cook and stir constantly over medium heat until it begins to boil.
Reduce heat to simmer and cook two more minutes while continuing to stir.
Remove from heat and stir in butter.
Chill until firm.

Now it’s time to kick it up a notch!

How To Make Whipped Coconut Cream

If you have never tried this…make sure you put “a can of coconut milk” on your grocery list because you are going to want to make this ASAP! Not only is it completely delicious…it’s about the easiest thing you will ever “make”. Also, if you happen to not eat dairy, you’re in for a DOUBLE treat!

Start by putting your can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, or overnight…or for 2 weeks (that’s how long mine stayed in there before I got around to it.)

Scoop out all the solid coconut, leaving the liquid in the bottom. (You can drink that later!)

Now all you do is whip it up with your mixer or your blender! It has a tiny bit of sweetness to it already, but I added about a tablespoon of sugar just to give it a little more.

It’s simply amazing. I would be hard-pressed to tell the difference between this stuff and regular whipped cream.

Now let’s put the two together!

Lemon Coconut Blender Mousse

Combine equal parts lemon pudding to whipped coconut cream and chill until firm. Top with extra whipped coconut cream, if desired.

That’s it!

Get ready to enjoy one of the dreamiest desserts you’ve ever tasted!

      Okay I would really love a blender so…one of my favorite dessert recipes is chocolate mousse. It is so worth it!

      Chocolate Mousse
      2 cups chilled heavy cream
      4 large egg yolks
      3 tablespoons sugar
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      7 oz fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped

      Garnish: lightly sweetened whipped cream
      Special equipment: an instant-read thermometer

      Preparation

      Heat 3/4 cup cream in a 1-quart heavy saucepan until hot. Whisk together yolks, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a metal bowl until combined well, then add hot cream in a slow stream, whisking until combined. Transfer mixture to saucepan and cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until it registers 160°F on thermometer. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl and stir in vanilla.

      Melt chocolate in a double boiler or a metal bowl set over a pan of simmering water (or in a glass bowl in a microwave at 50 percent power 3 to 5 minutes), stirring frequently. Whisk custard into chocolate until smooth, then cool.

      Beat remaining 1 1/4 cups cream in a bowl with an electric mixer until it just holds stiff peaks. Whisk one fourth of cream into chocolate custard to lighten, then fold in remaining cream gently but thoroughly.

      Spoon mousse into 8 (6-ounce) stemmed glasses or ramekins and chill, covered, at least 6 hours. Let stand at room temperature about 20 minutes before serving.
