Lemon Ice Cream : Low Carb : Lovely for Summer Days



Why not treat, the whole family to this fresh and creamy low carb/keto dessert. Summery home-made ice cream, bursting with luscious citrus flavour, and it's sugar free too!

Ingredients:
Six Servings
3g carbs per serving
1 lemon, zest and juice
3 eggs
1⁄3 cup / 75ml / 50g erythritol (sweetener)
1¾ cups / 425ml heavy (double) whipping cream
¼ tsp yellow food colouring (optional)

Tips:
Quickest made with an ice cream maker - but you don't have to own one, just be more patient before it's ready to eat!

Of course you could 'switch up your citrus! Limes and grapefruit make yummy ice cream flavours, too. If you try a grapefruit, use only one tablespoon of juice for every two servings of ice cream.'

Instructions:
Can be found here 

Lemons, so handy when cooking:


They are oval in shape, with a pronounced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits around, and contain a high level of Vitamin C. Although the juicy yellow flesh is a little too sour to eat on its own, its citrus fragrance and tartness means it's wonderful combined with all manner of ingredients and dishes, from the sweet to the savoury. The bright yellow skin can be used as well, when zested. Why not make them a kitchen essential!

We are great fans of citrus and often use a squirt or two of juice to liven up a dish. Lemons and limes are a permanent part of our kitchen.

Just looking at and reading this post makes me feel cool. Lemons are a magical fruit, beautiful themselves and with a taste that never disappoints.

With 2 lemon trees in the garden, I'm always looking for something to do with my lemons. This is perfect for Summer, so will have to wait a couple more months.
