Low GI Montignac Lemon Mouse

I am a big fan of the Montignac diet as I consider it more of a healthy life style for being accurate for diabetics but also can be used for fat loss.
Here is a delicious easy to make a healthy desert
You will need
3 lemons
5 egg yolks + 1 whole egg
200 ml milk ( I used skimmed but you can also choose full )
200 ml whipping cream
150 g fructose ( or any sweetener that comes as powder, the fructose I used has a 23 GI)
3 leaves of gelatine (or equivalent of agar-agar)
So here we go:
Grate the lemon zest.
Beat the eggs with the fructose, juice of 3 lemons and the zest.
Heat the milk and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Gently pour the milk on the egg and lemon mixture, beating vigorously with a whisk.
Return to a very low heat (preferably a bain-marie) and allow the mixture to thicken while stirring constantly with the whisk. Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
Soak the leaves of gelatine in cold water for a few minutes. Squeeze dry and add to the mixture, stirring in well with the whisk. Allow to cool for 30 minutes.If you are using the powder gelatine follow the instructions on the pack.
Whip the cream and fold into the mixture.
Pour into ramekins. Cover with plastic film and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.If you plan ahead u can refrigerate it over night.
The recipe you can find it on .
I also tried my version of the Montignac chocolate cake but I will post that later
