Brazilian Lime mousse recipe

Last week I received a big basket containing Brazilian limes. They are in season throughout the year. They are a great way to add freshness and texture to your cooking, as well as being a healthy way to flavour dishes.

Brazilian limes are completely seedless and tend to be lighter green in colour. They are known for having thin skins, which makes them much juicier.
I use limes everyday for salad dressings, sauces and in drinks. If life gives you limes make caipirinha! I make a little 6 seconds  Vine showing how to make caipirinha: here

Brazilian lime mousse recipe

1 can of condensed milk
1/2 cup of fresh lime juice (about 6 limes)

2. mix  very well the condensed milk and the fresh lime juice to a double cream consistency.

Thanks to  @BrazilianLimes  for sending the limes.
