In this video Lila and her dad make a simple, four-ingredient lemon mousse for the discerning foodie toddler. The recipe is adapted from Dessert Lemon Mousse Mascarpone in Kitchen Express.

To read the recipe demonstrated in the video click here.




Here's the recipe as it appears in Mark Bittman's Kitchen Express:

Lemon Mascarpone Mousse

Try substituting orange rind and juice for the lemon and add a touch of Grand Marnier in place of the cream.


Finely grate the rind of a lemon. Whisk together a cup of mascarpone, the lemon’s juice and grated rind, and about a quarter cup of sugar (or more to taste) until smooth. Add a tablespoon or two of heavy cream to moisten if needed. If you have time, chill for a bit before serving in pudding cups; top with a drizzle of honey and serve with ladyfingers.
