Just in case you are wondering, yes, I love lemons! To me, they are pure, citrus perfection! And this Lemon Curd Swirl Ice Cream is no exception. It’s like a bowl full of sunshine staring you down — and sure to brighten your day immediately!

That’s one reason I am obsessed with lemons! No matter what, they instantly put a smile on my face and put me in a good mood. Do they have that same effect on you?

The bright yellow color, amazing aroma, and the flavor, well I could go on and on about that!

And today, I really need some of this bright yellow happiness!

Even though it’s an extra-special day, one that is shared with mom and son; it’s my birthday, and more importantly, it’s the day that my son officially becomes a high schooler!

But really it’s so incredibly bittersweet; the feeling of pleasure mixed with sadness and the combination of bitterness and sweetness.

So today, it’s all about making this day the best day ever for my kiddo. Today he gets his independence! He can now spread his wings and free himself from elementary school to soar into his bright and sunny future — full of hope and promise knowing he can do anything he sets his mind to.

It’s hard to believe that this guy will be a freshman after this summer — as it really feels like I just dropped him off at pre-school. He he has grown into an amazing young man; kind, funny, smart, and the love of my life! Just like my love for lemons, my kid is the wonderful combination of sweet and tart. I am so very proud of him, words cannot really express my admiration for him!

If you’re in need of something soft, creamy and refreshing, look no further. This stuff is perfect! Just the sound of this mouth-watering treat makes me grin from ear to ear! Kinda like when I think about my kid!

So, let me treat you to this freedom-loving, scrumptious Lemon Curd Swirl Ice Cream. It’s super easy to make as you don’t need to pull out your ice cream maker. And with just a few simple ingredients you will have a delightful, refreshing dessert in no time.

Lemon Curd Swirl Ice Cream {no-churn}

1 cup heavy cream
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
2 lemons, juiced (about 2-3 tablespoons)
Zest from 1 lemon
1/2 cup lemon curd (homemade or store-bought)

Add the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and zest into a large bowl and stir until well combined.

Then, in a large bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, add the heavy cream and beat until stiff peaks form. Do not over whip.

Add the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed mixture and stir with a spatula until well incorporated.

Pour mixture into a loaf pan and smooth the top with your spatula.

Using a spoon drizzle the lemon curd on top of the mixture lengthwise. Note, you may have to stir your lemon curd a bit to get it to the right consistency to drizzle or pour. With a knife, swirl the lemon curd into the mixture until you have a pretty design.

Place in the refrigerator for 6 hours or overnight, or until firm. Scoop into bowls and enjoy!

  1. Happy Birthday Sheila – lovely recipe although I’d have to use the sentiment of love for the ice cream first and lemons second!

  2. Happy Birthday Sheila. I’m loving the sunshine-y citrus colour of your lemon curd ice cream. It brings a welcome pop of colour to our dreary rainy Sydney day.

  3. Wow, what a picture of perfection. Would love to have a big scoop right now. Love, Mom xxx
