    Summer came early to the Northwest this year and so my summer ice cream cravings kicked in early. Besides ice cream, another one of my favorite summer treats is lemonade so I decided to combine the two together today with lemonade ice cream. My lemonade cravings have been going strong so far this season. It started with this yummy Chick -fil-a frosted lemonade and then continued on to Frosted Freckled Lemonade. I get on a kick with something and I have a hard time stopping, this summer it is lemonade flavored things!!

    You will need an ice cream maker for this one and I love using my favorite Cusinart Ice Cream Maker.

    This recipe requires a little cooking and cooling so plan ahead. Because there are eggs in the recipe you must cook the custard and then temper the eggs. This basically means is that you have to add some of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolks, just a little at the time so that the eggs don’t cook. No one wants scrambled eggs in their ice cream. It’s easy to do, just takes a bit of time. Then you have to let the ice cream mixture chill before putting it in your ice cream maker.

    Ones the mixture has cooled, it’s ready to add to your ice cream maker and let it process. Then, you’re ready to enjoy, whether in a dish or in a cone! I’m a cone girl.

    • 3 cups whole milk
    • 6 egg yolks
    • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
    • zest of 3 lemons
    • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    • 1/3 cup undiluted frozen lemonade concentrate


    1. Heat the milk to a boil in a heavy pan. Cover and remove from heat.
    2. Beat the egg yolks and sugar together in a bowl until light and thick.
    3. Slow pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly. Turn the mixture to the sauce pan and cook over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon until it thickens slightly and coats the back of the spoon.
    4. Do not allow it to come to a boil or it will curdle.
    5. Add in lemon extract, zest, and juice.
    6. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature and then refrigerate it, loosely covered with plastic wrap until chilled. At least 3 hours.
    7. Freeze in the mixture in your ice cream maker.
    8. Once it starts to set and thicken, add in the lemonade concentrate and continue mixing until set up.
    9. Place in freezer to set up further.
