I can’t even believe it’s already Wednesday! The time passes so quickly again! It’s great news though because my thesis is progressing, my job too and I had a great offer this week that I was really excited about! For now I can’t spill the beans, but you’ll learn about it around the second week of April 😀
I make the following dessert for my family and friends, those who love cream cheese (mostly everyone but me!). These mousses are fresh, very lemony and taste like summer! It’s also gluten free! You can add all the fruits you want. When I look at my pictures, I think that with the mousse, the strawberries and the blueberries, this dessert is very appropriate for Independence Day 😉 Just be sure you make little portions because it is quite rich with the cream cheese, whipped cream and sour cream!
