Homemade Lemon Basil Ice Cream

As summer comes to a close,BBQ’s start to die down and the evenings become cooler, what makes a refreshing dessert to end the evening ? Lemon Basil Ice Cream!


I love making homemade ice cream with my Kitchenaid Ice Cream attachment. I found this zesty, creamy, light and fluffy lemon flavor with a hint of basil to be my favorite ice cream of the summer. I never would have thought to put basil in ice cream, but I saw the recipe on Baking Bytes blog and fell in love with the refreshing, savory flavor.






Picking basil from my garden gave it a strong basil taste! Perfect for a hot summers evening to wind down from a busy day!

    Glad you enjoyed it! It’s definitely one of my favorites.

    In the future, if you are not going to alter the recipe at all I’d prefer you just linked to it instead of reprinting the whole thing. =)

      I will do that next time! I just edited it, so I just linked it to your page. You do have the best ice cream recipes! They are hard to come by 🙂

        Oh thanks! Not a crisis but I appreciate it for sure!

        They definitely can be hit or miss. I also don’t use any that require cooking eggs so I tend to modify a lot. They are fun to come up with though! And glad other people get uses out of them. =)
