Description

Limoncello is famous Italian liqueur. As a typical liqueur, it contains plenty of sugar and is thus not suitable for a very low-carb lifestyle. Therefore, I developed a quick, sugar-free low-carb “Limoncello,” which is used for seasoning this airy dessert mousse. Each serving has only 1 1/2 grams net carbs!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Grated Yellow Zest From Organic Lemons (with No White Pith!)
  • 2 Tablespoons Vodka
  • 2 whole Egg Whites From Extra Large Organic Eggs
  • 8 ounces, weight Mascarpone
  • ½ cups Zsweet Sweetener (or Powdered Erythritol)

Preparation

1. In a small jar, combine lemon zest and vodka. Cover tightly and let stand at room temperature overnight or for a couple of days.

2. When ready to make the dessert, press the mixture of the lemon zest and vodka carefully through a strainer. A tea-strainer works well.

3. In a deep and narrow bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.

4. In a medium bowl, combine the mascarpone, sweetener and the “Limoncello” fluid (i.e. the lemon zest infused vodka). Beat until smooth.

5. Carefully fold in the beaten egg whites.

6. Serve immediately.
