OK, this isn't exactly the healthiest dessert but the LOWEST calorie content, No Dairy, Super fast and NO SUGAR. I improvised from 3 different recipes and tested it for my Christmas Parties...well my hubby thinks I need to make it every night now.

OK here it is, my version of:

*Lemony Lemon Chiffony Mousse*

(Double it as much as you want)

-1 pkg, LEMON Jello No Sugar Added
- Low fat no sugar Cool Whip or equivalent
- Lemon Juice ( Best lemon juice from concentrate)
- Some favorite no sugar sweetener

Start the jello according to the package
1 cup boiling water to dissolve the jello
Then add 2 or 3 tblspns of Lemon Juice to 1-1/4 cup cold water -
Add it and mix it well into the jello
I add more lemon juice because I love it really lemony/tangy. Taste the mixture add the sugar to your taste.
Make sure the mixture is just a wee bit stronger than you'd like!
Now put it in the fridge till it sort of jells and is no longer watery.

After it has jelled a bit, beat with a whisk just to get some bubbles and smoothness in it then add 1 cup of Cool Whip and beat again. Leave it in the bowl or put in individual bowls
Put it in the fridge...wait at least 5 hours..the longer the better for it to set.
Decorate with whatever makes you happy! Extra Cool Whip, a Cherry, mint leaf, Strawberry or Dark Chocolate Sprinkles on top.

For sure you could put the Mousse in a cooked pie shell or cooked tart shells...but that increases the calories and God knows we do not need MORE calories

I estimate this dessert at about 45 calories a cup.
