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!
Lemon Custard Ice Cream
1/2 cup whole milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup FRESH SQUEEZED lemon juice (do not use cheap bottled stuff)
1/2 lemon curd (found with the jellies & jams, typically)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package lemon pudding mix
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.
