Sunshine in a cup: lemon mousse

Made with just a few ingredients, this light, fruity mousse is a quick and easy treat for any sunny gathering. Rober’s aunt shared the recipe with him at a family party last summer. His version is made with fresh lemons grown on the small balcony of the city apartment he shares with his partner, Libertad.
