Lemon lovers, prepare to fall in love with this lemon custard ice cream. It's creamy, rich, and bursting with lemon flavor. This is one of the easier homemade ice cream recipes we've tried. The custard reminds us of a pudding. So, if you can make a homemade pudding, you can make this dessert. Lemonade concentrate really adds a rich flavor. This ice cream's texture is a cross between ice cream and sherbet. it's really creamy and delicious.

Ingredients For yummy lemon custard ice cream

  • 1/2 tsp
  • 2 Tbsp

    whole milk
  • 4 lg
    egg yolks
  • 1 tsp

How To Make yummy lemon custard ice cream

  • Beaten egg yolks in a bowl.
    Beat egg yolks in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Adding milk to the beginning stages of the custard.
    Combine sugar, salt, and cornstarch in a large saucepan. Slowly stir in milk. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens (should coat the spoon). Remove from heat.
  • Tempering the eggs with hot milk mixture.
    Stir in about 3 or 4 tablespoons of the hot custard mixture into the egg yolks, one tablespoon at a time. This is important because it brings the temperature of the eggs up so when you add the egg mixture to the custard it does not cook the eggs and make your custard lumpy.
  • Adding egg mixture to custard mixture.
    Slowly stir in the egg yolk mixture into the custard mixture.
  • Bringing custard to a boil.
    Return the custard to medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow mixture to boil for about a minute. Remove from heat.
  • Butter added to the mixture.
    Add butter and vanilla.
  • Allowing the custard mixture to cool.
    Stir and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
  • Adding lemonade concentrate to cooled custard.
    Once cooled, add lemonade.
  • Pouring evaporated milk into the custard.
    Then add water and evaporated milk.
  • Custard poured into an ice cream maker.
    Stir and pour into your ice cream maker.
  • Freezing ice cream according to ice cream maker directions.
    Freeze according to directions.
  • Freshly churned ice cream in a bowl.
    Once freezer stops, pour into an air tight container and freeze for three or four hours (or until completely frozen). Yummmmm!
