Banana Pudding

For all those who love the irresistible combo of chocolate and banana, this dessert is THE one for you.

Lemon Mousse

This chilled dessert contains a well-balanced citric kick and sweetness, whisked together in airy whipped cream.

To make lemon mousse, you’ll need a quarter cup of lemon juice, half a teaspoon of lemon zest, half cup sugar, whipping cream and 2 egg whites – whisked until soft peaks have formed.

Take a separate bowl, whisk together some lemon juice, zest and sugar, until combined.

In another bowl, whip some whipping cream, until light and fluffy.
