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.

    This looks super yummy!!! My favorite dessert is key lime pie but this may be next.. *drooling* p.s. I don’t have an Instagram account but I may just sign up for one. ;)

    Love, love, LOVE Sour Cream Apple Pie! As a diabetic, I can sweeten it with Splenda and make it guilt-free! Will gladly share the recipe, if you email me, or you can find a couple of versions with a quickie web search for the recipe name.

    Oh wow, that lemon mousse looks good! Wonder if i can substitute the lemon for limes? One of my fav desserts has been a French silk pie. I make a 9in pie crust using crispy nuts that have been soaked and dehydrated. I blend them with a bit of coconut oil and maple syrup and press into the spring can and bake for about 15 mins or looks light brown and cripsy. The I beat 1 cup of rapadura or brown sugar with 1 cup of butter till fluffy, pour in 3 ozs of melted dark organic chocolate and beat again and I add 4 fresh organic free range eggs BUT I add the one at a time and beat for 6-7 mins after adding each egg to make it a mousse consistency. It’s very important that each egg is beaten for the full 6 mins. Then spoon into cooled pie crust and refrigerate for about 4-6 hours. Serve with whipped cream.

    In my younger years, I found a recipe for monkey bread that was given to my mom from an aunt. I was so naive that I thought that it was an original family recipe that my aunt named. I made it for anyone I could because it’s simple and delicious. I was disappointed when I learned that Monkey Bread isn’t my aunts recipe but continue to make it.

      As someone who cannot eat dairy and who is also trying very hard not to eat any refined products, I am pretty excited about this Lavender Chocolate Cream Pie. I am also excited to try to Lemon and Coconut Cream Mousse. I actually use Coconut cream in a lot of my recipes and wonder if that might work better than coconut milk. I will follow the recipe as written first. I also use agave syrup and coconut sugar and wonder if I could possibly substitute to the refined sugar in your recipe Jillee?

    Hi Jillee!
    This is my favorite dessert.
    Chocolate Mint Cookies
    3/4 cup butter
    1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
    2 tablespoons water
    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
    2 eggs
    2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    36 chocolate mint wafer candies

    1.In a large pan over low heat, cook butter, sugar and water until butter is melted. Add chocolate chips and stir until partially melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until chocolate is completely melted. Pour into a large bowl and let stand 10 minutes to cool off slightly.
    2.At high speed, beat in eggs, one at a time into chocolate mixture. Reduce speed to low and add dry ingredients, beating until blended. Chill dough about 1 hour.
    3.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
    4.Roll dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake 8-10 minutes. While cookies are baking unwrap mints and divide each in half. When cookies are brought out of the oven, put 1/2 mint on top of each cookie. Let the mint sit for up to 5 minutes until melted, then spread the mint on top of the cookie. Eat and enjoy!
