This recipe is essentially a combination of my sugar-free lemon curd with whipped cream. (I beg you not to try it with a commercial sugar-free lemon curd, as I think you'll be disappointed. My version is not hard to make.)


  • 1 recipe lemon curd, chilled (see link above)
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream (preferably not ultra-pasteurized)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • sugar substitute equal to 2-3 tablespoons sugar (liquid sucralose works well; see link below)


Whip cream with vanilla and sugar substitute. (Tips on making whipped cream.) Mix with lemon curd. Adjust sweetener if you'd like to add a little (depends upon how tangy you want your mousse). Serve in dessert dishes, or to be fancy, wine or martini glasses. Berries or mint make a nice garnish.

Makes 6 servings.

Nutritional Information: Each serving has 2 grams effective carbohydrate, 4 grams protein, and 209 calories.

Very good, Guest Cat19

This is a wonderful dessert that my family and I loved. I increased the amount of cream to about a cup and a half and mixed it with 2 packets of stevia. After beating up the cream I stirred it slowly into the lemon curd. The taste and texture were perfect! Next time I might increase the recipe all around because even with the extra cream I used the six servings were a little bit small.
