This amazingly rich ice cream is no-churn and so easy you could make it in five minutes. You might even call this “emergency ice cream” since it can be made when you need homemade ice cream as fast as possible.
All that’s needed is some lemon juice, zest, super fine sugar and heavy cream.
You don’t even need to whip anything, just mix it all together in a medium bowl. As the Barefoot Contessa would say, “How easy is that?” The answer–just too easy.
When it’s done freezing, serve in small portions.
Seriously, this ice cream is so rich that it’s not to be consumed in large quantities. A perfect portion is a small scoop or two with some lovely fresh blackberries.

- Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
- 1/3 cup superfine sugar
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1 cup fresh blackberries (optional)
- Whisk together all the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a shallow container and freeze, about 1 hour until firm. Serve in small portions, with fresh berries if desired.
- No need to buy superfine sugar if you don't already have it! Just whir 1/3 plus a tablespoon or so in the food processor until fine, about 1-2 minutes. Measure out 1/3 and proceed with the rest of the recipe.
