This creamy and rich mousse is so decadent and super easy. With a couple few steps, you have a flavorful chilled dessert for those warm summer days. The recipe will make about 4 individual servings if you like to share with others!
If you wanted to save another step you could just do one large bowl crumble and serve it family style. But I thought the single serve cups were super cute.
Lemon Mousse Crumbles are another one of those simple recipes I love and crave! You start by adding your softened cream cheese lemon juice, sweetener to your mixing bowl and mix on high until all smooth. Next, in a separate bowl, add your cold whipping cream and gelatin. Then mix the cream on high until it is nice and fluffy.
Once you whipped cream is fluffy you simply fold it into your lemon cream cheese mixture. This mousse is so good you could just eat it with a spoon, you guys! Trust me, I tried it. I had to keep telling myself to stop “testing it” or there would be none left for the dessert!
The cookies crumbles are simple shortbread-like crumbles that you don’t have to fuss with. I wanted a base for the mousse and the added texture but I was feeling lazy so I didn’t want to stand in the kitchen scooping out cookies batch after batch so I just made a quick almond meal mixture with butter and sweetener.
After mixing up the lazy “crumbles” I spread them on my stone baking dish evenly and baked them at 350 until they were a nice golden brown. It took about 15 minutes but watch them carefully after the first 10 to make sure they don’t burn.
I also stirred mine half way through to make sure all the crumbles browned. After they baked I cooled and chilled them and tada! They were crunchy just like a cookie! So easy and so good you guys!
See, being lazy can be a good thing, right? Hey, it worked out this time, so let’s go with it, haha!
I have plans to also make a key lime version of this Mousse Crumble as soon as I can make a run to the store for limes. But then again, a strawberry or blueberry one sounds yummy too!
Of course, if you don’t like fruity flavors you could make the old faithful chocolate by adding some unsweetened cocoa powder and more sweetener. Yum! I don’t believe you could go wrong with any of these flavors!
