This homemade ice cream recipe requires no special machinery. We will make it with lemon juice for a slightly tart and very creamy result.
One of the most important recommendations for this recipe is that the milks be very cold. Place them in the freezer for about 90 minutes before you start. It does not matter if they are partially frozen. The colder the better.
Please try and use freshly squeezed lemons for this recipe as the bottled juice tends to have a bitter after taste to it.
This is what you are going to need for this delicious homemade ice cream recipe:
400 grams (14 oz.) of very cold evaporated milk
397 grams (13.5 oz.) of very cold sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp. lemon zest
Make sure the evaporated and the sweetened condensed milk are in the freezer for about 90 minutes before you start this. It is okay for the milk to be partially frozen.
Pour the evaporated milk into a large bowl and beat until doubled in volume.
Slowly add the condensed milk and continue beating. Follow with the lemon juice.
Add the lemon zest and mix in.
Place the lemon cream in a wax paper lined bowl. Cover the bowl with an extra piece of wax paper placing it directly on to the cream. Freeze for a minimum of 6 hours or up to overnight.
Serve with fresh fruit it you like.
NOTE: This cream is delicious without freezing as well. We love to serve it with fruit salad or any chopped fruit that is in season.
