Ingredients:

  • 50 ml Vanilla Ice-Cream
  • 5 ml Lemon Juice
  • 2 ml Lemon Rind
  • Few drops Lemon Color
  • 5 Mint Leaves

Recipe:

  1. Begin by scooping 50 ml of creamy vanilla ice cream into a mixing bowl. Allow it to soften slightly at room temperature for easier mixing.
  2. Add 5 ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice to the softened ice cream. The citrusy punch of lemon will infuse your ice cream with bright, tangy flavor.
  3. Grate 2 ml of lemon rind into the mixture. The lemon zest adds a fragrant aroma and intensifies the lemony essence of the ice cream.
  4. For a vibrant hue, add a few drops of lemon color to the bowl. This step is optional but enhances the visual appeal of your ice cream.
  5. Finely chop 5 mint leaves and sprinkle them into the mixture. The mint leaves impart a refreshing, herbaceous note that perfectly complements the lemon.
  6. Using a spatula or whisk, gently fold all the ingredients together until well combined. Be careful not to overmix, as you want to maintain the creamy texture of the ice cream.
  7. Transfer the lemon and mint-infused ice cream into a freezer-safe container and smooth the surface with the back of a spoon.
  8. Cover the container tightly with a lid or plastic wrap to prevent ice crystals from forming.
  9. Place the ice cream in the freezer and allow it to set for at least 4-6 hours, or until firm.
  10. Once the ice cream is fully frozen, scoop it into bowls or cones, garnish with additional mint leaves or lemon slices if desired, and serve immediately.

Tips:

  • For an extra burst of lemon flavor, add a splash of lemon extract to the mixture.
  • Adjust the amount of mint leaves according to your preference. You can also substitute fresh mint with mint extract for a more intense minty taste.
  • To achieve a smoother texture, churn the ice cream in an ice cream maker before freezing.
  • Store any leftover ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for up to two weeks.
