lemon, zested and juiced
cold milk, chilled
1 (14 ounce) can
nonfat sweetened condensed milk, chilled
We substituted oranges and oj instead, and used a bit less of the sweetened condensed milk, it turned out like a creamsicle!
My family liked it but i didnt find it very appetizing. I think it was too rich and I didnt care for it. it was ok for a quick dessert
This is a quick and easy recipe to use with an ice cream maker. I prefer a less sweet flavor, so I increased the amount of lemon juice to 3 lemons, and reduced the milk.
This is yummy! I was worried it would be too sweet as the other reviews said, but I found it perfect. This was my first attempt with my new Ice Cream Maker. It reminds me of a lemon cream dessert my gran used to make at xmas time.
I used 3 sm lemons but forgot to zest (duh) till after I trashed the rinds. Thus found it light on lemon flavor so I added 1.5 t. lemon extract. Will play with this to get a standard juice amt and probably add another cup of milk. Was good alone but fantastic served with raspberries and blueberries on top. Tweak Edit: I had half a can of sweetened milk to use and though of this recipe. I only had 2 lemons, juiced 2 and zested 1. Half can of sc milk, 1 cup of ff half and half, 1/2 cup whole milk. DD liked it MUCH better this way for eating alone, less chalky. I think 4 juiced and 2 zested would suit our sour tastes better and next time I'll double my tweaks because it makes a tasty and cool treat in the heat.
Not as smooth tasting as I would have liked, but a great recipe using minimal ingredients I usually have on hand. Even my picky son said it was good!
is that the zest of 1 lemon and the juice of 2 lemons?
Creamy not icey! I really wanted to like this recipe but found it "sour" as opposed to "tart". I don't know why it surprised me but it is lemon and milk. My ingredients were fresh. To make this to our liking, Hubby added Hershey's strawberry syrup to his, and I made an orange float out of mine. Very good this way so all was not lost! Thank you for sharing your recipe, jem, I wish we had liked it with no changes.
