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.
