Refreshing Lemon Cream
Fresh lemon juice provides the tangy flavor in this smooth, rich ice cream recipe from Sunkist. The refreshing make-ahead treat can be prepared without an ice cream maker and looks splendid and summery when served in individual cups made from lemon halves.
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + freezing
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
- Lemon boats, optional
- Fresh mint and shredded lemon zest, optional
- In a bowl, stir cream and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Stir in lemon juice and zest (mixture will thicken slightly). Cover and freeze until firm, about 4 hours.

Editor's Note: 1/2 cup mashed strawberries may be added to the lemon mixture before freezing.
