You are just 4 ingredients away from a bowl of creamy lemon ice cream. It has the perfect balance of sweet and tart and is sure to delight your taste buds.
If you love a good citrus dessert, you are in for a treat. This ice cream is simple as can be to make and has a big blast of lemony flavor.
The texture is smooth and creamy. It really is just about as good as it gets. Whip up a batch to see for yourself.
I cannot tell you enough how much my boys liked this ice cream. It left my husband wondering (out loud, several times over) why lemon ice cream isn’t really a thing.
Well, it’s a thing now! And we are all in love.
Of course I knew it was going to be a hit. Everyone loved the key lime sherbet so much.
This recipe is really similar, but with a bit more cream to give it that super smooth melt in your mouth texture. And of course with lemon juice instead of key lime.
Other than that, there isn’t a ton to tell you about this recipe. It is so simple and so good and that is really all you need to know!
Favorite ice cream makers
MiMi has a couple kitchenaid ice cream maker attachments for her stand mixer. She loves them and makes all of her ice cream with them.
I recently got a cuisinart ice cream maker. You freeze the bowl ahead of using it much like the kitchenaid attachment.
Both work great and are relatively affordable. You just have to remember to get the bowl in the freezer in plenty of time to get it cold, but that is a whole lot better than making sure you have enough ice and salt on hand!
Great ice cream storage options
My mom loves the Tovolo Glide-A-Scoop containers that fit in the freezer well, stack easily and store nicely. She already has a couple and is getting ready to order more.
For another fun and easy citrus treat, try making some lemon puppy chow. It’s a great snack mix.
