Lemon Mousse With Homemade Whipped Coconut Cream

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


  • 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

coconut cream dream

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.

  • 3 egg yolks lightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice

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!

coconut cream dream

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.)

Open the can and you will see that the coconut has solidified at the top.

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.

Whipped Coconut Creme

Jill Nystul


  • 1 Can Coconut Milk
  • 1 tbs sugar


  • Start by putting your can of coconut milk in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, or overnight
  • Open the can and you will see that the coconut has solidified at the top.
  • Scoop out all the solid coconut, leaving the liquid in the bottom.
  • Whip it up with your mixer or your blender.
  • Add about a tablespoon of sugar to add sweetness.


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!

  • You have Spring giveaway fever and my name is Spring-perfect!
    Pink Fluff
    Small box jello(I like strawberry)
    Your whipped coconut cream
    Small can crushed pineapple
    Small bag coconut
    1/2 cup chopped preferred nuts
    Chill & enjoy!

    • 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


      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.

      • I LOVE my Blendtec!! I Introduced my sister to it and she went out and bought one too!! Can’t say ONE thing I love about it because there are SO many!! However, I DO LOVE FRESH my FRESHLY made Almond butter :) YUMM~O!!

  • 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. ;)

  • What a wonderful giveaway!! I could really use this to make some awesome smoothies. My favorite dessert is mint brownies!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

  • 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.

  • One of my favorite desserts is lemon meringue pie! Thanks for this recipe… I’m going to try it with a soy substitute due to milk allergies, but it looks yummy!

  • 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.

  • Raw Lavender Chocolate Cream Pie

    What you need

    1 cup raw almonds
    2 c raw cashews
    1/2 c raw hazelnuts
    1/2 c raw honey
    1 cup dates chopped
    1/4 c raw cacao powder
    3 tbsp coconut oil
    2 tbsp dried or fresh lavender
    2 tbsp water
    How to make it

    The night before or at least 3 hours prior soak the almonds and cashews in separate bowls of water, drain when done
    in a food processor or blender process almonds, hazelnuts and dates until pasty, the nuts will still be a bit chunky when done
    press almond “crust” into a pie pan that has been greased with coconut oil
    in a food processor or blender puree cashews, honey,lavender, coconut oil, cacao powder, coconut oil and a couple tbsp water until smooth
    put puree in pie dish and smooth over
    tap pie on counter to release air bubbles
    cover in plastic wrap and put in the freezer for a few hours or overnight.

    • 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?

      • P.S. I already receive your email updates and follow you on FB. Does that equal 3 chances for that Blendtec? Hehehehe….

  • I subscribe to your email newsletter as well…

  • Hi Jillee,
    Today is my birthday and this would be an amazing treat to share with my family and friends on this special day! I’m celebrating my 28th birthday for the 8th time. :0)

  • My favorite right now is Frozen bananas whipped up in a processor to ice cream consistancy…. It is really yummy and good for you too! Add a little cocoa powder to it makes it real good too.

    I would love one of these blenders to try it in!


  • In hopes of being the next blendtec groupie…here is my most recent favorite dessert. And yes it includes Lemons and was a huge hit this Easter.

    Amazing Lemon Cake with lemon Icing/glaze

    4 eggs
    1 package white or yellow cake mix
    ¾ cup oil
    1 package instant lemon pudding mix
    ¾ cup water

    Mix and beat well. Bake in a greased and floured pan (I used a tube pan but you could use a 9×13 inch pan) at 350 degrees. (Approximately 45 minutes for the tube pan and 30 minutes for the other.)
    While the cake is still hot, poke holes in the top with an ice pick or large fork. Pour glaze over cake (see below) and let it seep in. Can be served as is or with whipped cream or ice cream.

    2 cups powdered sugar
    2 tablespoons butter, melted
    1 tablespoon water
    1/3 cup lemon juice

    Pick me…pick me!

  • Break up store bought angle food cake in a cake pan. Make strawberry jello ( add you choice bananas, strawberries, pineapple, peaches) pour over torn apart cake. Chill. Make pudding (your choice vanilla, banana,..) pour over chilled jello, chill and just before serving add cool whip over the top. Oh o good. Decorate with banana or strawberry slices.

  • Simple Summer Smoothie

    Equal parts:

    frozen strawberries
    frozen pineapple chunks
    frozen mango chunks

    Place fruit in a blender or smootie maker.

    Pour in enough apple juice to cover all the fruit.

    Blend until smooth, adding juice if necessary to thin the smoothie or make it mix better.

    Pour into a tall, frosted glass, and serve with a fresh strawberry on the rim of the glass, and if desired, a straw and long ice tea spoon!

  • I love to make homemade lemon bars! oh they are sooo yummy! I tried starbucks’ lemon pound cake yesterday.. and im definately going to be making that soon! Plus topped with this delish looking coconut whipped cream.. yumm!!
    Thanks for the cream recipe.. cant wait to try it!!

  • Because I recently stopped eating any sugar or wheat, desserts are a bit complicated!
    But one thing I really enjoy is frozen mixed berries (blackberry, blueberry and raspberry) with a couple of envelopes of trivia and a splash of cream. Delicious!!
    Hope you like it!

  • My favorite dessert is simple: ansliced apple with a spoonful of almond butter :)
    I also sometimes like to make a fruit n’ veggie smoothie:
    zucchini, spinach, Goji berries, fresh & frozen fruit, flax, Greek yogurt, pomegranate juice,& coconut milk.
    It also makes a great light meal!

  • We love making “white trash” piles at our house. Combine chek cereal (I like the rice one) with Pretzels (broken up), add crunchy chow mein noodles, and your favorite nut (I love Almonds! but you can omit nuts if necessary). Fold in a small jar of Marshmallow fluff. Drop by small spoonfulls onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with melted white chocolate or white almond bark. Let set or rush it by placing in freezer for half hour. Great for cooking with kids, always yummy! ~Jenny N.

  • As you can see, I am really trying to win. I love the blender and could really use one for a variety of recipes. I love all your blogs and sites and save all your emails in your own special folder for quick reference. I share so many of your ideas with my children. I have 12 grandchildren so the money saving ideas are GREAT! Thank you.

  • Already a subscriber & Facebook follower, but now following on Pintrest
    I don’t use Twitter or Instagram though. always loving your posts!

  • I follow you on Pinterest and Facebook and emails. Love, love it. My fav dessert if strawberry shortcake with fresh whipped cream. Thanks for another give away!

  • My family’s current favorite dessert is Strawberry Cream Cake. I may try to use whipped coconut cream in place of the whipped cream in that recipe.

  • I follow you on Pinterest,Facebook,twitter and am subscribed to your emails newsletters. My favorite dessert is actually a grapefruit or smoothies but I really like peanut butter blasts
    1 big scoop peanut butter
    Big squeeze Hershey’s syrup
    And milk
    Put all in blender and blend away tastes like a Reese’s peanut butter cup
    Often I use pb2 instead of peanut butter because it is only 1 gram of fat also add lots of ice so yummy lots of protien for a good energy boost

  • My favorite dessert is still cake and ice cream. Not one without the other, gotta have both together. Preferably devils food layer cake with chocolate fudge frosting or cream cheese frosting, and plain vanilla ice cream, not lowfat, not sugarfree. Simple and delicious.

    Could really use this blender!

    As always, love your site!

Not sure if i can enter the contest since I live in Brussels, but there is no harm done just to leave you a nice comment :) my favorite dessert, thats hard to say….I love to bake and a simple vanille cake can always warm my heart, home made ice cream is also lovely!. But today I am baking one of my favorite recipes: nutella, banana cup cakes. Take a basic cake recipe, ad a little banana (not to much!) and a full teaspoon (or more) of nuttella, add this to eather the batch or put the banana and nuttella in your cupcake shape. With this recipe you can eather make cupcakes or one large cake (I use 200 gr flour, 200 gr brown sugar, little bit of vanilla sugar, baking soda, vinigar, 200 gr butter, salt, 3 egg’s)
    with love from Brussels!

  • OMG! Jillee, that sounds absolutely divine! and with coconut!
    This will definitely become one of our regular favorites at our house.

    I have two favorite deserts: one is trifle… mmmm yum! and the other is tiramisu…. death by desert!… Looove coffee deserts! … and yoghurt!
    Do you think the coconut cream could be used in the trifle?

    Jillee – how about a post about a gluten free trifle? Most of it is taken care of with the exception of the cake at the bottom or lady fingers. What do you think?
    Would love to win the blender… off to post the extra chances!

    Thanks Jillee! Love Ya!

    And… next time you do a contest maybe do it through Rofflecopter, most contests through it have the same requirement, but you don’t have to have individual comments for every entry.

  • This looks insanely delicious! I love lemon and coconut “cream” sounds perfect with it. My fave dessert is a mint cake, which I make when the mint in my yard is growing out of control. I usually make a lemon frosting for it but I might have to make this pudding a a side with it next time.

    thx for the giveaway, Jillee!

  • My favourite dessert is a toss up between butter tarts and my homemade date squares – mmmm mmmmm good! Thanks for the chance to win a blendtek.

  • I love grilling pineapple or peaches, or whatever fruit is in season that looks good, and I serve with gelato or whipped cream–this coconut cream you suggest would be a fantastic pairing. I also follow you on pinterest.

  • Chocolate chip cookie recipe:

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    3/4 cup granulated sugar
    3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 large eggs
    2 cups (12-oz.) Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips
    1 cup chopped nuts

    PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

    COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

    BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

  • I love Boston Cream Pie–from the bakery is wonderful, homemade can be okay with the right recipe, but the old box mix from Betty Crocker was my favorite! I follow you by email and look forward to it every day.

  • I don’t usually make a lot of traditional desserts, but I do make a lot of smoothies that taste like desserts. Right now my favorite is pineapple coconut. I blend fresh pineapple with about 1/4 cup of coconut milk and frozen pineapple chunks until smooth and top with some toasted coconut. Delish!!

  • My favorite dessert is a Strawberry Cheesecake made with Philly cream cheese. Is there anything better??? I think not, lol. I would love to win this Blender…I do need a new powerful one!! Love your page, Jillee!!

  • My kids favorite is what we call “Mom-Mom Treats” (although I know she got the recipe from someone else!).

    Line a jelly roll pan with tinfoil and spray with non-stick spray. Cover the entire pan with saltines. Melt 2 sticks of butter, 1 cup of sugar in saucepan, then gently pour mixture over saltines (make sure all crackers are covered). Over hot crackers, spread 1 bag semi-sweet mini-morsels (they will melt and make a lovely chocolate paste). Sprinkle chopped peanuts over whole pan. Freeze whole pan until everything is hard. Break off pieces and enjoy! We break off pieces, put them in Ziploc containers and keep them in the fridge, otherwise the chocolate melts too quickly!

  • I love following you everywhere! You are such an inspiration… My favorite dessert is classic chocolate chip cookies, but I am liking the salted caramel version lately, too!

  • My favorite desert that always brings back memories of home is Peach Cobbler…cooking on Sunday after church, while my family was sitting down to eat. Would love to win the Blender, Thanks so much for the recipe!

  • My favorite dessert is Maple Apple Spice Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Cream Cheese frosting from http://www.hipsteaders.com. I substitute with a gluten free sorghum-potato starch blend, so far no one has known that they weren’t eating the real deal! They have also become many non-gf fans favorite cupcakes.
