Oh Lemons how I love you. – When the summer months arrive it comes naturally to gravitate towards light and refreshing desserts .

Especially ones that are citrus inspired and that are served in cute little mason jars. I used strawberries to give my lemon mousse a little twist. But you can feel free to use any kind of berry to add something extra special to this recipe. Try Blueberries, Blackberries or Raspberries . They all compliment this classic Lemon mousse well. Not to mention they look so extra pretty when serving them.
