Lemon Curd Ice Cream Recipe | No Churn

Lemon Curd Ice Cream is another no churn ice cream wonder! I whipped up a batch of this rich, tangy, sweet, creamy, lemony dessert for #IceCreamWeek, and I'm so excited to share this with you today! Did I use enough adjectives there? <grin>

Do you love lemon desserts as much as I do? I am crazy for anything lemon! I could eat my Luscious Lemon Curd all by itself with just a spoon and be perfectly content! It is lip-smacking, lemony goodness! So why not use that tangy Lemon curd recipe to flavor ice cream? I couldn't think of a good reason against doing just that! So I did it. Done and delicious!

It just so happened I had some leftover lemon curd sitting in the fridge waiting for a job, so I used it to flavor my 2nd #IceCreamWeek no churn ice cream recipe! I'm so glad I did! Lemon Curd Ice Cream is surprisingly easy to make and a perfectly refreshing way to cool off!

No churn ice cream is just too easy to make, there is really no excuse to buy ice cream in the store anymore. You can flavor it with anything you like. Check out my Salted Caramel Ice Cream Recipe, and you won't want to miss my Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream. No Churn ice cream is just three ingredients and can be put together in about 5 minutes. After that you just need to freeze it until firm and enjoy the creamilicious goodness.

Something else I like about no churn ice cream is it's smoothness. I tend to not like the consistency of store bought ice creams. They are gritty to me, but this homemade no churn ice cream is perfectly smooth and creamy. It is the texture ice cream should be, in my humble opinion anyway.

Lemon Curd Ice Cream Recipe


  • 1 cup heavy cream, chilled
  • 1/2 can sweetened condensed milk (about 7 ounces)
  • Luscious Lemon Curd to taste


  1. Make the Luscious Lemon Curd in advance and have it chilled and ready to go.
  2. Chill your mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes. When nicely chilled, add 1 cup of chilled heavy cream to the mixing bowl and whisk on high until soft peaks form. Soft peaks are formed when you lift the whisk attachment out of the cream and it leaves a peak with the tip bending over. The time it takes to create soft peaks will vary depending on the speed of your mixer, but it will only be a minute or two, so be sure to watch closely.
  3. Gently fold in 1/2 can of sweetened condensed milk to whipped cream until combined.
  4. Carefully spoon 1/2 the whipped cream mixture into a loaf pan. Top with several dollops of Lemon Curd and gently swirl with a knife. Give it a taste and add more Lemon Curd as desired. Spoon the rest of the whipped cream mixture into the loaf pan and top with several dollops of the Lemon Curd. Once again, swirl the Lemon Curd into the ice cream. Give it a taste and add more Lemon Curd as desired. Cover with plastic wrap and place in freezer until solid. Serve and enjoy!

  1. Mmmmm....what a great use of lemon curd! I'll take two scoops please!

  2. This looks beyond delicious! Love lemon flavored anything.

    1. Me too, Ashley! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  3. This looks yummy, and so easy to make! I'm going to have to try this!

    1. No churn ice cream is my new fave for how simple it is!! Thanks, Michele!

  4. The thought of lemon gets my mouth watering, so looking at your ice cream I have drooled all over my desk!! YUM!!!

    1. Thanks for the giggle, Tara! I'm totally the same way - love lemon anything!! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This recipe looks great! I can't wait to try it. My fave flavor is pistachio/almond. Do you have any recipes for those flavors?

    1. Thanks, Lyn. I don't have those, but here's a good one for Pistachio/Cherry http://www.grumpyshoneybunch.com/2014/08/Pistachio-CherryNoChurnIceCream.html

  6. This would go over very well with my Christopher T! He is like me and will eat the lemon curd right from the container. :) Looks amazing Marion!

    1. I'm all about the lemon too! Thanks for stopping by, Shelby!

  7. Great idea! I want to try this with lime!

    1. Fantastic idea, Tonia! Lime curd would be delicious!

  8. I know the point is no churn, but could you just put all those ingredients in your ice cream maker and let it go? I'm guessing yes, but any warnings would be appreciated.

    (Also, it looks like a great candidate for those little ice cream bowl freezers by Zoku.)

    1. I have never had an ice cream maker, so I'm not sure on that. I don't think the no churn recipe would work well in an ice cream maker though, as you don't want to over mix the whipped cream. I'll have to check out those ice cream bowl freezers! Thanks!
