The badass, Miles Miller, is coming to LA tomorrow for the first time in 4 months.  I haven’t seen him in three months.  I am very excited!!!  Miles is a notoriously fussy eater but one thing he loves consistently is lemon.   I asked him one time what his favorite ice cream was & his response was lemon custard.  LEMON CUSTARD?  Yikes!  I was hoping for something a little less exotic and something I could whip up for him.  It has taken me a year to work up the courage to attempt this.  I have no sweet tooth myself & I seldom make desserts but OMG!  This stuff was crazy easy & RIDICULOUSLY creamy & lemony & just all-around awesome!  I cannot recommend this with more enthusiasm!!!  I could have a pint of ice cream in my freezer for a year & never even be tempted to touch it but I ate a boat load of this before I even put it in the ice cream maker.  OUTRAGEOUS!

1/4 cup FRESH SQUEEZED lemon juice (do not use cheap bottled stuff)

Whip the ingredients together with an electric mixer until it gets to the consistency of pudding.

Put in your ice cream maker & follow the manufacturer instructions.  Try not to eat it all before you turn it into ice cream because I promise you – you will be tempted.
