Lemon-Buttermilk Ice Cream RecipeOxmoor House


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 10 lemons)
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups fat-free buttermilk


Combine sugar and juice in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk until sugar dissolves. Add half-and-half, whole milk, and buttermilk. Pour mixture into the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's instructions. Spoon ice cream into a freezer-safe container. Cover and freeze 1 hour or until firm.


    Dress up scoops of tangy buttermilk ice cream with in-season berries, sliced stone fruit, or lemon rind strips. Waffle bowls make a fun way to serve dessert, too.

  • Yield: 18 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
