Lemon Icebox Cake Ice Cream

Lemon icebox cake ice cream
Since the strawberry buttermilk ice cream turned out so well, I thought I’d try the concept with some different ingredients. I picked up a few pounds of Meyer lemons from Whole Foods the other day, so that got me wondering what Meyer lemon ice cream would taste like. Then I started thinking about lemon icebox cake and it struck me that I had some lemon pound cake sitting around.

Like the strawberry buttermilk ice cream, this recipe uses no eggs or cream and does not need to be cooked. You just whisk it all together and dump it in an ice cream maker.

2 C buttermilk
2/3 C sweetened condensed milk
1 Tbs sugar
zest of 1 Meyer lemon
juice of 1 Meyer lemon

1/2 cup pound cake cut into little cubes

Whisk the buttermilk, condensed milk, sugar and lemon zest+juice together. Put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to chill.

Once it’s nice and cold, dump it into an ice cream maker and follow the manufacture’s directions. Once the ice cream is done, take it out of the ice cream maker and mix in the pound cake. Serve soft, or put it in the freezer for a bit to set up.

    Thanks Sophia, let us know how it goes:-)

    Michelle, you’re right, lemon “icebox cake” is similar to the chocolate version but uses vanilla wafers, and a lemon flavored cream or combination of lemon pudding and cream. I make a version that’s actually more like a trifle using ladyfingers, lemon curd and cream. If I have some time this weekend. I’ll whip up a batch this weekend and post it here.

    The ice cream was delicious. I had to stop myself from eating the whole batch all at once. So now I have to try your strawberry version but that’ll have to wait til strawberry season.
