If you need a dessert on the fly, then look no further – this is it. This very citrusy mousse-like dessert is delicious and simple. I also made a quick mint syrup to go with it and it cuts the tart citrus flavor very nicely.
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cup whipping cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
Place the lime juice, cream, and condensed milk in a blender on high for 6-10 minutes, scraping down the sides once or twice.
Pour into small ramekins or wine glasses, cover, and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours.
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 cups mint leaves, blanched
Blanch the mint leaves (about 30 seconds in boiling water) then transfer to ice cold water to stop cooking process. Drain and set aside.
Place the sugar and water in a small pan and bring to a boil to dissolve the sugar. Allow the syrup to cool down then place in a blender with the blanched mint leaves and process on high. Strain the mixture using a fine sieve.
Serve the lime dessert chilled with the mint syrup on the side.
