Check out this braces friendly recipe we found for you!


  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 8 egg yolks
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 8 to 10 strawberries chopped, plus more for garnish (I suggest using even more, the strawberries were so yummy!)
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 3/4 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted


  1. Combine 1 cup sugar, lemon juice, 8 egg yolks and lemon zest in a small saucepan. Whisk to combine.
  2. Over medium heat, stir constantly with a wooden spoon.
  3. Cook until mixture is thick enough to coat back of wooden spoon, about 7 minutes.
  4. Place lemon mixture in fridge and chill until cool, stirring occasionally.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs and butter until well combined.
  6. Using electric mixer, beat heavy cream in medium bowl until medium peaks form.
  7. Gently fold whipped cream into lemon mixture until well combined.
  8. Divide graham cracker mixture between 8 serving dishes. Top with chopped strawberries and sprinkle strawberries with a bit of sugar. (Don’t be shy with the amount of strawberries , they taste so yummy with the lemon mousse. I would have used more, but my strawberry bandit had hit again!)
