Course Dessert
Prep Time 10 minutes
Chill 1 hour
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lilikoi juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 cup heavy cream or heavy whipping cream, very cold

Garnish Suggestions:

  • fresh fruit
  • lemon wedge
  • whipped cream or cool whip


  • Place a mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer 20 minutes ahead of time. Whenever whipping cream, you want your tools very cold.
  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, soften the powdered gelatin in 2 tablespoons room temperature water, stirring gently to moisten all the gelatin. Let it stand for 5 minutes. Then microwave for 10 to 15 seconds until the gelatin is translucent. Set aside.
  • In the cold mixing bowl, add sugar, lilikoi juice, lemon zest, and heavy cream.
  • Beat on medium speed until stiff peaks form, wiping the sides of the bowl with a spatula at least once.
  • Add the melted gelatin mixture and beat at low speed until well-blended and smooth.
  • Pipe or spoon mousse into desired serving dishes. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Garnish with whipped cream and fresh fruit.


A NOTE ON SERVING SIZE: This is a rich dessert, so I recommend small serving sizes.
