Pastry Studio's Lemon Almond Ice Cream


Pastry Studio is one of my favorite blogs. Every recipe is original, beautifully presented, unusual and delicious. All her ice creams are truly special and this particular one is tart and refreshing. I love citrus flavors in the summer, don't you?
Quite surprisingly, this ice cream is made without eggs. While you do need an ice cream maker, this is the simplest ice cream I think I've ever made. You'll find 1/2 teaspoon almond extract is just about right. I love toasted almonds too, so I sprinkled the ice cream with even more before serving.


Lemon Almond Ice Cream
From Pastry Studio




Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup + 2 T sugar
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 lemons)
2 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest (I used 2 lemons)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon good quality almond extract, to taste
good pinch of salt, to taste
1/3 cup toasted sliced almonds

Method:
Whisk together all the ingredients except the almonds. Refrigerate the mixture overnight to chill thoroughly.
Toast the sliced almonds in a single layer in a 350 degree oven for about 6 to 8 minutes. 
Churn the ice cream base in your ice cream machine. Fold in the toasted almonds. Pour into 
a container, top with plastic wrap, cover securely and place in your freezer. Makes 1 1/2 pints.

  9. One of my goals for this summer is to use my ice cream maker to it's fullest potential and this sounds like the perfect way to start! I love almond-flavored anything (but especially ice cream).

  10. You're motivating me to clean out my freezer so I have room for my ice cream maker bowl! Lemon ice cream--with or without almond flavoring--is summer in a bowl.

  11. This is much lighter than the lemon ice cream I usually make, and I love the addition of almonds to the mix. Ice cream is a must have on the first day of summer even if the weather is cool and cloudy. Thanks for the recipe, Barbara. Can't wait to try this.

  12. Oh my. Another must-try. I think I need to ask for the ice cream accessory for my KA mixer for my birthday...

  15. We finally got a heat wave and now I'm craving ice cream (not that it takes a heat wave for that to happen but you know what I mean.) Now I want to MAKE it in addition to eating it. This sounds great, and no eggs? Amazing!

  23. sounds like another winner as i smack my lips!

  24. Barbara! This has to be indeed the SIMPLEST ice cream recipe I have ever seen! And lemon has to be my favorite. Do you know where I could find however, a recipe that is dairy-free? Oh dear, is that a silly question...I am lactose intolerant and the only way I can satisfy my LOVE JONES for cold treats is by blending FROZEN FRUIT such as pineapple or mango chunks in a VITAMIX with orange juice. I have done frozen cherries with frozen non dairy frozen yogurt and it is great. But to get an iced lemon treat is quite tricky. Oh, you make my culinary dreams soar! THank you for visiting dear friend! Anita

  25. I really love a nice tart ice cream or sorbet this time of year and this one sounds perfect, Barbara. So refreshing, and I love the almonds for some crunch!

  27. NOW THERE IS AN IDEA! Oh, my what a great idea. Off to Trader Joe's or my local Asian market...they are bound to have it! AND MIXING IT WITH PINEAPPLE OR BANANA????? I shall give this a go..thank you dear Barbara! Anita

  28. I adore toasted almonds too! Especially on my ice cream. :-) I always have to go back for seconds on ALMONDS before I ever finish the ice cream. :-)

  29. Simple and easy. I've made this recipe with limes, but lemon and almond sounds like a delicious combination.

  43. I'll be passing this gorgeous link on to my daughter. Eggs don't always agree with my grandson so she is always looking for ice cream recipes without them. And anyway, she has an ice cream maker. Which reminds me, I should ask her to bring it when she comes to visit!!!

    Thanks for sharing, Barbara. It looks heavenly!!!
