This cool and creamy Homemade Lemon Ice Cream is made with real lemon juice for the perfect lemon flavor. It’s not too sweet, absolutely delicious and perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day.
I posted this Homemade Lemon Ice Cream recipe over nine years ago and knew it needed a chance to shine again in the spotlight. Most of you probably don’t even know it exists and it’s too good not to share again. I’ve updated the pictures and added some notes to the recipe. Enjoy!

There is only one thing to say about this cream and that is this is absolutely the best Homemade Lemon Ice Cream I have ever eaten. It’s creamy, not too lemony, not too sweet. . . the lemon flavor is absolutely perfect! This creamy concoction is not only refreshingly light, but its flavor perfectly complements any baked goods you might want to pair it with.
My family LOVES homemade ice cream, we have been making it for as long as I can remember. In fact, you could probably consider us homemade ice cream connoisseurs, so when I made this and took it to a family party last year, everyone went crazy over it.
I saved this lemon ice cream recipe from the newspaper several years ago (my mom’s habit has rubbed off on me). The woman who shared it said it’s her mom’s recipe and according to her mom, you must put the ingredients in the order they are listed and the cream MUST GO IN LAST (those were her mom’s exact words). She doesn’t give any explanation as to why, but I’m a rule follower so I did it and you probably should too. After all, maybe that’s the secret to this ice cream tasting so dang good!
Make it for your next BBQ, make it for dessert tonight, make it just because I said so . . . .you won’t be sorry!
