Chilled Key Lime Mousse

January/February 2012

Your rating: None Average: 3.2 (44 votes)

This refreshing chilled Key lime mousse is a perfect union of cream and foam, tangy lime and soft sweet custard. The method is simple but a little unusual—you make a custard with fresh Key lime juice rather than milk or cream. Key limes, which are about the size of a Ping-Pong ball, are wonderfully fragrant and more acidic than regular limes. They are available all year at well-stocked supermarkets. If you can’t find them, by all means use regular limes.

Chilled key lime mousse....

For the amount of work required, the outcome was not that great. This is one of the few in Eating Well that I didn't find true to active time.

tastes good
