Fresh lemon ice cream

lemon ice cream with lavender

I love lemon's taste and aroma. In fact I love citrus flavors and lemons are my weakness.
I like them all.
Use yellows to sweeten and lime to taste. I love lemon pie and as it could not be in  love with lemon ice cream ,of course my favorite flavor.

Lemon ice cream is the ideal end to a heavy meal or a barbecue. No matter if it's winter or summer, a classic is always a classic.
I like to combine with lavender and put some flowers for flavor it, but is entirely optional. The recipe was written off in a cooking show that's happening in the Rai, as it was time ago I can´t remember the name of the show.Is very creamy and tasty. If you have a ice cream machine,perfect, just follow the manufacturer's instructions, I hope you like it.

Could it be more fresh than a homemade ice cream? I guess not, love the homemade version.
