Lemon Gelato Recipe

Publisher Photo
On a recent trip to Italy, I became addicted to gelato. My favorite choice was lemon because Italian lemons have an intense flavor. This recipe brings back memories of our vacation. —Gail Wang, Troy, Michigan

MY REVIEW

This is one of the most amazing recipes I have in my recipe box. It tastes like lemons. Everyone who likes lemons LOVES it. I would call it more of a custard, though. I have had gelato and do not care for the texture. The texture of this is SUPERB!

I made this for a birthday coffee party for my mother & her friends. I served it in frozen tiny glass pedestal dessert dishes, garnished with fresh mint sprigs and a raspberry. It was a very big hit. I will absolutely make it again!
