Lime Mousse Tart

Lime Mousse Tart

For my first CitronLimette recipe post, I figured it would be appropriate to use Lime as one of the main ingredient.

This is so refreshing. The mousse tart makes the perfect dessert for a summer warm day.

Nobody will ever guess that the main ingredient in the mousse is avocado. The other secret is “this is a Raw Dessert”. No need to do any baking. The lime juice and the lime zest give a floral aroma to this tart.

In Raw Dessert, specially when making a mousse, Soy Lecithin is an ingredient of choice. It is used as a natural emulsifier in various food applications. Lecithin homogenizes the fat and the liquid so they don’t separate and make the dessert creamier.

If you have an allergy to soy, the recipe can be made without the Lecithin.

  1. I am drooling. What a refreshing dessert and I love that it is made with avocado. When I had looked at the ingredients in traditional key lime pie I almost fell over – between the amount of sugar and eggs it was definitely not a healthy dessert. This on the other hand sounds like perfection!

    This looks wonderful, but can I substitute for the agave? It gives me blood sugar spikes similar to HFCS.
