Looking for a light, delicious, flavor-filled EASY dessert? Try this cold, creamy lime mousse, which is made in 5 minutes using only 4 ingredients!
Combine heavy whipping cream, granulated sugar, lime juice and zest, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix gently to combine ingredients. OPTIONAL: Add one drop of green food coloring to the mousse if you want a very light shade of green.
Beat the mixture on high speed using an electric mixer. You will need to beat it until SOFT PEAKS form. This usually will take about 4 minutes. Transfer mousse to four small dishes, dividing it evenly. At this point it is okay to eat the mousse, BUT... it's even better if you chill it for an hour. The mousse is at its best served very cold.
To serve (optional): top each serving with a spray or dollop of whipped cream. Add a sprinkle of lime zest, and a fresh lime slice to each dish for a colorful presentation. Enjoy!
OPTIONAL GARNISHES: aerosol whipped cream, lime wedges, additional lime zest, and/or mint leaves
