I grew up with this recipe and haven't made in year saw a request for it let me know if you like it.

I was thinking that sugar free Jello could be used, and there's some diet lemon soda, isn't there? Diet Sprite? But Cool Whip! Do you suppose real whipped cream would stand up to all that folding and standing? While I'm sure there's a diet Cool Whip, I would hesitate to put that chemistry experiment into my mouth.

This is a light, refreshing dessert to serve to your guests. I topped it with blueberries because I like how they go with lemon. But top this with anything that suits your taste! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Tin Cut Lemon "Mousse"

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl dissolve the lemon jello in 2 cups of hot water. Add the juice of two lemons and mix thoroughly until the gelatin is well dissolved.
  2. Add the 7 Up and stir gently (it will foam).
    Refrigerate for two hours (until the jello solidifies).
  3. Beat the solidified jello in the bowl until it has a smooth texture.

    With a spatula fold 3/4 of the cool whip under; keep folding until all
    blobs of the whip are dissolved (this may take 10-15 minutes of folding,
    a real manual activity).

    Pour into a nice glass dish and refrigerate. Before serving garnish with fresh berries.
