Lemon Mousse Dessert Cups

These Lemon Mousse Dessert Cups may be small, but they don’t skimp on delivering a big burst of refreshing lemon flavor! The perfect bite-sized dessert to bring to picnics and cookouts, they’re a fun way to add a lot of dairy to one cute little dessert. Cream cheese, yogurt and heavy whipping cream give each little cup a triple dose of dairy power. Talk about a protein-packed punch!

I mixed in some lemon curd to make a delicious little cheesecake filling for these cinnamon-sugar dessert cups. Top each one with some fresh fruit, and you have a fun treat. These would be a hit at Memorial Day, Fourth of July or Labor Day parties too — with the red and blue berries, they look pretty patriotic!

Use mini cups for a one-bite treat, or pick up the larger cups for a more filling dessert. Or, eat them for breakfast, just like I did. I mean, it is fruit and dairy, after all. Wink, wink!
