Ratings & Reviews

Great texture, pretty good flavor

This ice cream freezes nicely to a "scoopable" consistency. Overall a nice recipe. I was looking for a fruity ice cream with a ka-pow zing, and this one does alright-- the lemon zest certainly helps, but I was underwhelmed by the berry flavor.  Cassis might help, but I'm not enough of an ice cream expert to know how to do that without a recipe.
