Luscious Lemon Ice cream is super creamy and slightly tart. Using both the juice and zest of lemon makes this ice cream super lemony.

Seriously, stop what you’re doing right now and make this, or at least put the ingredients on your shopping list to make very soon!
You can thank me later! 😉
My recipe comes together easily and requires no eggs. I really hate tempering eggs! Just mix the ingredients together and let the ice cream make freeze into creamy goodness!
To serve, hollow lemon halves and fill with the ice cream. This is a great presentation for entertaining.

- 4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup lemon juice fresh-squeezed, 6 to 8 lemons, depending on size
- ⅓ 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!
Good luck Felecia!
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!
I agree, while lemon has been my life-long favorite ice cream there is always room for butter pecan and cookies and cream!

Juanita Willy Beach says
I have been hooked on this melon sherbet from our Publix supermarkets down here in Florida…it’s just awesome…so refreshing…a combination of honeydew, cantaloupe, and watermelon. I have discovered from having that as a staple dessert for myself rather than ice cream, it’s so much lighter, that my favorites are the watermelon and the cantaloupe, in that order…so…that is what I want to try making, and I’ve been talking about it to my husband for about 6 months now!!!
My all-time fav!
I would definitely make mint chocolate chip, and relive childhood!
I would like to make something with coconut in it!
I’m dying to try an orange with pineapple and coconut! Dreamy!!
