Meyer lemon mousse in chocolate cups

by Kristina Sloggett

in Dessert,Gluten Free,recipes,Valentines Day,Vegan

I cannot stop making chocolate shot glasses. I’m not a big fan of white chocolate, but I am a fan of pink. I am a fan of Valentines Day.

Lemon is one of my favorite flavors for light, fresh desserts. But if I am honest, I have to say I chose lemon so I could tint it yellow, which is a vibrant contrast to pink. Exactly how I pictured it in my mind – I love when that happens.

Flavor-wise, the tart lemon of this pudding-like mousse tones down the very sweet white chocolate these shot glasses are made of – the sweet pink containers perfect for serving mousse desserts on Valentines Day.

Or on a random Monday.

Meyer lemon mousse

dairy and gluten free, vegan

1/2 (6 ounces) package silken tofu
1/3 cup cream cheese (Tofutti)
2 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1 Meyer lemon – juice and zest only
coloring, optional (I use Seelect – vegan + organic)
4 white chocolate shot glasses tinted with beet juice 

Combine all ingredients in food processor, pulse on high until blended. Taste – adjust for desired sweetness. Transfer into piping bag (or plastic baggie), refrigerate 30-45 minutes. Pipe into chocolate shot glasses and top with sugared decor.

Pin It

Happy Valentines!

Of course the flavor sounds good, but I’m personally wowed by the beautiful flavor combination. Keep on making stuff with these pink shot glasses. I won’t complain.

If I had those molds, I would be making everything I ate out them! Sloppy joes? Shot glasses form. Nutloaf? Shot glasses. Pizza? Yup, shot glasses. I am with you on the white chocolate though. Why does it taste so poorly? But if it is colored pink? Well, excuse me while I shove my mouth with some.

A friend has these shot glass molds and never uses them…I want to steal them so I can take them home and experiment with making your pretty drinks and desserts! TOO cute, I love the pink and yellow.

DO IT. ;) they are SO fun. the first time you use them, it is a LITTLE difficult to get the shots out… but the silicone gets softer and the second and third times have been VERY easy to get out :)

and thanks – I love the pink and yellow too – good for Valentines.

I talked to my dad last night and he sounds so down. It's so tough to hear him so deflated. It's actually really hitting me hard today. Ugh.

Woo hoo- I can actually make these! The only thing I’ve filled my molds with so far is water. I didn’t know how much chocolate to use (but now I do because I looked back to your first post about it).
I didn’t actually use my ice shot glasses, just showed them off to party guests on Sunday who were impressed and suggested we buy some Jager. :)
And I’m with you on the lemon thing- I just posted a lemon dessert today (because I’m obsessed with Christin’s chickpea cookies).
