Best ice cream ever. A super refreshing summer treat! All the flavours of key lime pie but in an ice cream.


Serves: 8 

  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 1/4 cups cream

Preparation:5min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Extra time:3hours freezing  ›  Ready in:3hours15min 

  1. Whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, lime juice and lemon zest in a saucepan over medium heat until well-blended. Continuously stir the egg mixture with a wooden spoon until thickened, 7 to 8 minutes. The mixture should be thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.
  2. Remove from heat, and stir in the cream until smooth. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve set over a clean bowl. Cover and chill the mixture in the refrigerator, stirring occasionally, until cool, about 1 hour.
  3. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a lidded plastic container then cover the surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.
