Low Carb Lemon Mousse

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

I had a guest on a low carb diet and she gave me this recipe. It's really lemony and delicious. There was a slight aspartime aftertaste, but for those trying to cut back on the carbs it's a great dessert! Prep time includes chilling.

If you use Splenda in place of (sweet n low) or any other sugar substitute you won't have an after taste, Splenda is used for baking and has less than 1 gram of Carb per tsp.
