Lemon Ice Box Pie IceCream w/Fresh Blueberry Sauce

Diane Hopson Smith


It was my good fortune to be the winner of the Cuisinart Ice Cream maker here on JAP at the end of the summer last year.

This was a perfect Ice Cream to test out this awesome machine!

Lemon Ice Box Pie is one of my all time favorite summer time desserts. When I found this recipe for "Lemon Ice Box Pie Ice Cream" I was all over it! Oh my!! Some kind of brain freeze good ice cream!

Because I love blueberries and lemon together, I've added a blueberry topping to this ice cream.

Ice-Cream Maker


3 to 4
2 c
half and half
(14-oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4 c
coarsely crushed graham crackers


2 c
blueberries (plus a few extra)
1/4 c
2 Tbsp
1 1/2 tsp
fresh lemon juice

Directions Step-By-Step

Grate zest from lemons to equal 1 Tbsp. Cut lemons in half; squeeze juice from lemons into a measuring cup to equal 1/2 cup.
Whisk half-and-half, sweetened condensed milk, and lemon juice together. Pour mixture into a 1 1/2-qt freezer container of electric ice-cream maker; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
Once ice cream freezer stops stir in graham cracker crumbs and lemon zest; transfer to an airtight container. Freeze in refrigerator freezer 2 hours before serving. NOTE: be sure to put the graham crackers in as a last step. They freeze well and add a nice little crunch. Also when I crushed the crackers, I put them in one bowl and lifted out the larger crumbs to the measuring cup, leaving the finer crumbs to use in another dish.
In a medium saucepan, mix the blueberries with the sugar, water and lemon juice. Simmer over meduim heat until the blueberries begin to burst, about 8 minutes, until the juices of the berries have released and made a sauce. Take about 1/2 cup of the berries and pulse in the food processer and return to sauce. Remove from the heat and toss in a few extra berries; cool. Refrigerate before serving.
Once ice cream is firm, scoop into bowls and top with blueberry sauce.
