Limoncello is famous Italian liqueur. As a typical liqueur it contains plenty of sugar and is thus not suitable for a very low-carb lifestyle. Therefore, I developed a quick, sugar-free low-carb “Limoncello”, which is used for seasoning this airy dessert mousse.
First, the grated, yellow lemon peel is steeped in vodka at least for overnight. The fluid is then carefully pressed through a strainer and added to a mixture of mascarpone and sweetener. The dessert is finally lightened with beaten egg whites, which round the flavors and make the texture as airy and fluffy mousse.
This adult-only dessert is great for any New Year’s Eve party. The whole family dessert can be made by substituting lemon juice for vodka.
