There’s no better cook book to turn than Livia’s Kitchen when your sweet tooth comes out to play! If it’s not already a part of your kitchen library, then hopefully this scrummy (and ridiculously easy to make) Sugar-Free Lemon Mousse will tempt you to add this refined sugar-free bible to your collection!

This recipe is truly unique, and is one of the lighter options in this chapter. The lemon comes through so strongly in this mousse and is incredibly refreshing. It is a perfect dessert to serve after a really flavoursome meal as it helps to clear the palate.


4 ripe avocados

Juice of 5 lemons

Zest of 3 lemons

5 tablespoons maple syrup

3 tablespoons almond butter

Berries and/or lemon zest, to serve


Mix all the ingredients in a food processor for 2 minutes until mixed well and creamy.

Serve the mousse with berries and/or a sprinkling of lemon zest.
