Secretly Healthy Lemon Turmeric Mousse

The smell of lemons reminds me of so many things. Spring time, a clean house, sweet and savory dishes, and of course, tangy desserts. 
The lemon itself, is a descended from the citron, the sour orange, and the pomelo. It’s packed with Vitamin C and acts as a natural immune boosting fruit. It’s not only the Vitamin C that is thought to be good for your system. The fiber and plant compounds in lemons have also been shown to significantly lower risk factors for heart disease.
