Lemon Posset may be the easiest citrus treat you’ll ever make and love!

And I’m saying this despite having a super simple Lemon Ice Granita recipe under my belt. So you can imagine just how easy this is. The Lemon Posset recipe uses  just 3 (or 4) ingredients, takes less than 5 minutes of your cooking time and gives you a tangy pudding like dessert that you will attack within minutes of removing from the fridge!

P.S: This dessert ain’t for the lemon-haters. Nor is it for those who find the combination of citrus and dairy weird. So if you feel it is a weird combination- run. Run far away from this recipe! 😀
