Homemade Lemon-Lime Ice Cream

Over Memorial Day weekend, we went away on a family camping trip. When we returned, everyone was wanting some homemade ice cream.

The above pic shows you what I came up with. It was light and refreshing, and everyone loved it.

Lemon-Lime Ice Cream
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup fat-free half & half
1 cup 2% milk
the zest of two limes
the juice of two limes
1/2 t. lemon extract (you could substitute lemon zest)
1/2 c. lemon juice
2 cups sugar
1/2 t. vanilla

Combine all ingredients and whisk til sugar is dissolved. Pour into your ice cream maker and freeze per manufacturer's instructions. Either let it ripen for 30-60 minutes in your freezer after freezing, or if you can't wait just dig on in! We won't blame you. Not one bit.
