Refreshing Lemon Cream Recipe

Refreshing Lemon Cream Recipe

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 TIME: Prep: 10 min. + freezing YIELD:6 servings


  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  • Lemon boats (see page 58), optional
  • Fresh mint and shredded lemon peel, optional


  • 1. In a bowl, stir cream and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Stir in lemon juice and peel (mixture will thicken slightly). Cover and freeze until firm, about 4 hours. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. Serve in lemon boats or individual dishes. Garnish with mint and lemon peel if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

Recipe Note

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