(Espuma de Limon) Barcelona's Cal Pep restaurant would not divulge the recipe for this dessert to author Joe Gracey; however, it did share with him the ingredients list, and he managed to figure out the rest. Gracey thinks this tangy treat is delicous even if you don't aerate it; we agree.


  • 7 oz. canned condensed milk
  • 13 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream


Step 1

Mix condensed milk with lemon juice in a large bowl and beat on high speed with an electric mixer.

Step 2

Step 3

Mound the dessert into six 4-oz. glasses or ramekins and serve immediately.
