Homemade Lemon Ice Cream

Hello! I hope this week has been a good one for you. We got back
from our seaside break yesterday. We spent five days in Robin Hood's Bay, our favourite holiday place, and we had the most wonderful time.
I'll write more about it soon. For now, though, I have here a lemon ice
cream recipe to share with you.

My husband made this for us recently. He makes this and other
fruit sorbets every spring and summer and they're perfect frozen treats on lovely, sunny days. I know you usually need to have an ice cream maker to make your own ice cream at home. Without one it's very labour
 intensive. Well, this ice cream is super easy and quick to make and no
ice cream maker needed!

It's from River Cafe Pocket Books Puddings, Cakes & Ice Creams 
by Rose Gray and Ruth Rogers.

You'll need:

juice and finely grated zest of 3 lemons
200g caster sugar
450ml double cream
1/2tsp salt

Combine the lemon juice and zest with the sugar.
Slowly add the cream and salt, mixing carefully. It will
immediately thicken. Freeze in a shallow container.

It is best to leave it overnight in the freezer and my husband
also recommends using good quality double cream.

You'll have a delicious ice cream that's very creamy with a lovely
sweet lemony taste. It is great on its own or paired with shortbread biscuit, cake or a fruit sorbet. We all love this here in our house.
I do hope you'll try it.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend.


  1. I love love love lemon flavoured ice cream!! xx

  2. Ooh Marion, that looks delish! I'll definitely be making it, thank you for sharing the recipe. x

  3. Oh looks gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. My little boy has a nut allergy and it is difficult to find ice cream which is safe. This is great, just a few simple ingredients. Bee xx

  4. Mmmmmmmmmm I'm drooling just thinking about this! Am emailing it to hubbie to have a go at :) THanks for sharing, have a lovely weekend! xx

  5. Oh how I wish I had read this post before my trip to Tesco! Bookmarking this page. I am glad you had a lovely holiday and look forward to reading more about it. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. x

  6. Mmmm, I love lemon anything! I don't think we have double cream here, but I found instructions for making something similar. I always think it should be easier to eat healthier in the spring and summer, but I always want to make all the yummy fruit into ice cream, pie, crisps, crumbles, etc, haha! I'm so glad you had such a nice holiday, and can't wait to read all about it!

  7. Ooh lovely, I've bookmarked this page, I'll be giving this recipe a try! xx

  8. I love love love lemon desserts!!! Yum! xx
