  • 500g carton fresh custard
  • 142ml carton single cream
  • 142ml carton double cream
  • zest and juice of 3 juicy lemons, unwaxed if possible



    Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…

  • 6 good quality meringues, crushed (we used Sainsbury's Meringue Nests)
  • 8 good quality ice cream cones


  1. In a large bowl, mix the custard and the single cream.

  2. Whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks, then stir in the lemon zest and juice. Fold this into the custard mixture.

  3. Pour into an ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Gently fold in the meringue, then spoon into a freezer container and freeze. Remove from the freezer at least half an hour before serving. To serve, scoop into the ice cream cones and eat immediately.

Lush! Very easy and quick to make. Not having to cook the mixture - like in most ice cream recipes - is a big plus!

Light, refreshing and easy to make - will definitely be making again although only used 3 meringues as I like things quite sharp
