Citrus fruit nectar with lemon mousse
250 ml (8.5 US fl oz) condensed milk
150 g (5 oz) cheese spread
For the citrus fruit nectar:
200 ml (6.5 US fl oz) orange juice
200 ml (6.5 US fl oz) tangerine juice
200 ml (6.5 US fl oz) lemon juice
200 ml (6.5 US fl oz) lime juice
100 g (3.5 oz) sugar
Step by StepTo make the citrus fruit nectar:
Pour all the juices into a saucepan together with the sugar. Cook for about 10 minutes over a medium heat to thicken.
To make the mousse:
Start by grating the zest of the lemons. Put by. Next squeeze the lemons and mix the juice with the condensed milk and the cheese spread to make a smooth, creamy mixture. Add the lemon zest.
Spoon the mousse into the bottom of a dessert glass and pour the citric nectar on top.
Nutritional Tips- Cooking the citrus fruit gives the nectar more texture, but if you want a fresher, quicker and more nutritional method, you can simply use the juices without cooking them.
- If you don’t have any limes or tangerines to hand, it’s just as delicious with just orange and lemon juice!
- How about an even tastier version? Add some diced kiwi on top of the lemon mousse before adding the fruit nectar.
- This rich, versatile lemon mousse is also great for filling tartlets or pancakes.
- You can use dulce de leche (milk toffee spread) instead of condensed milk if you prefer.
