Here’s The Recipe For 3-Ingredient Lemon Ice-Cream:
Fresh cream- 500 ml
Lemon juice- 2-3 table spoon
Lemon zest- 1-2 teaspoon
Sugar- 1-2 cup (powdered)
Step 1. Take the sugar and lemon juice and mix them well.
Step 2. Take the fresh cream in a cold utensil. Make sure to keep a utensil in the refrigerator at least an hour before you start preparing for the ice-cream.
Step 3. Whisk the cream very well till it turns smooth, buttery and frothy.
Step 4. Add the sugar-lemon juice mix and whisk again. Also add the lemon zest. In this step, you can add more lemon juice or powdered sugar as per your need.
Step 5. When you are satisfied with the texture (it has to get a butter-cream texture we use for frosting), transfer it to the mould or the container you want to set the ice-cream in; then put it in refrigerator.
Step 6. Let it sit in freezer for at least 8 hours (preferably overnight).
Your Lemon ice-cream is ready to serve. Garnish it with some mint leaves and lemon zest.
Keep some whipped lemon-cream aside (before putting it in refrigerator) and enjoy it with homemade pancakes. Here’s an easy pancake recipe for you.
You can always improvise a recipe. You can add some red chilli or mint leaves extract to the recipe. Chilli will give that zing to the sweet-and-sour flavour of the ice-cream; and mint and lemon go hand-in-hand.
You can also involve kids in this ice-cream making process and keep them entertained and engaged. Bon appetit!
