Lime Ice Cream

Limes are in season, it’s humid and too hot to cook, so what’s a Noosa Foodie to do? Make Lime Ice Cream! This tangy, refreshing ice cream is not only extremely delicious but super-simple to make. An ice cream maker is a useful appliance to own if you enjoy homemade ice cream, and you can pick them up inexpensively from department stores and electrical retailers. For those of you that don’t own an ice cream maker, I’ve included alternative instructions in my recipe (it will require a little more work). Regardless, your efforts will be well rewarded!

300ml cream
80ml (1/3 cup) natural yoghurt
150g caster sugar
80ml (1/3 cup) freshly squeezed lime juice (3-4 limes)
1 tablespoon finely grated lime zest
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Place all ingredients in a medium bowl and whisk together using a balloon whisk until thoroughly combined.
2. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn, following the manufacturer’s instructions. Transfer to a container and place in the freezer for about 3-4 hours or overnight if time allows. If you don’t own an ice cream maker, place the mixture in a shallow container and freeze for 2 hours or until almost set, then beat and return to the container. Repeat 2-3 times.
3. Scoop the ice cream into glasses or bowls and serve.
