Delicious ice cream (or is it a sherbet?) made by adding canned frozen lemonade concentrate to vanilla custard.

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. The Test Kitchen

    cornstarch
  • 3 c
    whole milk

  • 1 Tbsp
    butter

How to Make Yummy Lemon Custard Ice Cream

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat egg yolks in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Slowly stir in the egg yolk mixture into the custard mixture.
  5. Return the custard to medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Allow mixture to boil for about a minute. Remove from heat.
  6. Add butter and vanilla.
  7. Stir and allow mixture to cool to room temperature.
  8. Once cooled, add lemonade.
  9. Then add water and evaporated milk.
  10. Stir and pour into your ice cream maker.
  11. Freeze according to directions.
  12. Once freezer stops, pour into an air tight container and freeze for three or four hours (or until completely frozen). Yummmmm!
