Here at Foodaciously, we want to help you enjoy the food you love without compromise. So we have made this lemon posset vegan, dairy-free, sugar-free. Awesome!
We have replaced double cream with a tasty vegan cream made from soaked and blended cashew nuts. Cashews have a sweet and buttery taste, and they are also rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Unlike double cream and other dairy products, cashew nuts provide unsaturated 'healthy fats' and are cholesterol-free. Unsaturated fats help prevent heart disease, make you feel full for longer, and may help in managing your weight.
Moreover, instead of refined white sugar, this recipe includes maple syrup, which has almost half of the sugar content. If preferred, you can also use agave nectar or raw honey.
One of the most typical ways to eat the lemon posset is to pair it with Scottish shortbread biscuits. They are truly delicious but also very fattening! Instead, we suggest you serve this lemon mousse with digestive biscuits as they are lower in calories. We also have a gluten-free and sugar-free digestives recipe right here for you, for a guilt-free treat!
