  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup lemon juice fresh-squeezed, 6 to 8 lemons, depending on size
  • cup lemon zest finely grated
  • pinch salt


  • In a large bowl, whisk all the ingredients together. Allow mixture to stand for 20 minutes at room temperature. Whisk every 5 minutes to dissolve the sugar.
  • *I use a Cuisinart ice cream maker, the freezer bowl gets very cold so I don't chill the ice mixture beforehand.
  • Turn the machine on; pour the mixture into the freezer bowl. Let it mix until thickened about 20 to 25 minutes or according to the manufacturer’s instructions. The ice cream will be soft and creamy at this point. If you prefer a firmer consistency transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in the freezer for about 2 hours.
  • Remove from the freezer about 15 mintues before serving.

    Hi Paula! The lemon ice cream recipe sounds good to me! But I like all flavors! Thanks for the chance to win this awesome giveaway! Blessings from Bama!

  2. This lemon looks good and I love all things lemon, but I might have to make some Rocky Road or strawberry or extra creamy vanilla or… hmmm… As you can tell, I’m pretty flexible when it comes to ice cream. 😉 Thanks, Paula!

    1. I agree, while lemon has been my life-long favorite ice cream there is always room for butter pecan and cookies and cream!

  3. I would have to start with vanilla bean, then move to strawberry and chocolate. i will absolutely try this recipe for lemon. Lemon custard is one of my favorites at Baskin Robbins!

  4. I am in love with a coffee flavored ice cream with dark chocolate chips. YUM!!!

  5. I haven’t done anything with Reese’s yet it’s next on my list! Also need to find a good Mint Chocolate Chip recipe!

    1. Lemon ice cream was my favorite when I was little, now of course, I want all kind of add-ins to my ice cream
