This lemon curd ice cream is deliciously soft and creamy. If you like lemon curd and also can’t pass up a bowl of ice cream, this will be the perfect dessert for you. Especially as it is sugar free.
Have you ever wanted to just take a spoon to a jar of lemon curd (or perhaps you have) then this is as good as that! But in ice cream form! It’s a bowl of the perfect summer. Made with my sugar free lemon curd keeping it low in carbs and no sugar. Although I made this in my ice cream maker, I think that this would work as a no churn ice cream too.
I made this lemon curd ice cream without any vodka and it worked fine with no ice crystals. I normally put a shot of vodka in my ice cream (when making it, not as I am eating it, although that’s an idea) but I was out of vodka. Yes, you at the back, stop clutching your pearls. It does occasionally happen. I wasn’t going to buy a large bottle just to make some ice cream. However, now as I type this I realise that I have seen little miniature bottles for sale in my local shop. Next time perhaps.
Lemon Curd Ice Cream
The Chief Taster fell onto this like a hungry tiger on a wounded gazelle. He declared it the creamiest ice cream I have made. Unfortunately for me I had to go away for a couple of days and left the tub of lemon curd ice cream unattended in the freezer. Nothing was left by the time I got back. I have only got myself to blame and it’s another excuse to make a batch of lemon curd again!
- 2 Cups (240g) Cream - heavy/whipping

As the cream is heating, whisk the eggs and erythritol together.
Remove the cream from the heat and gently pour into the egg mixture. Whisk until combined.
Add the lemon juice and rind and stir until combined.
Pour this mixture back into the saucepan on a medium heat and whisk for 5 to 10 minutes until the mixture starts to thicken slightly.
