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

Lemon madness!

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.

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 2 quarts


  • 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.

  1. 5 stars
    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!
