Ingredients

  • 1 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 3 3 eggeggs
  • 13 cup 75 ml (50 g) erythritol
  • 1¾ cups 425 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp yellow food coloring (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Wash the lemon in lukewarm water. Finely grate the outer peel (zest). Squeeze out the juice and set aside.
  2. Separate eggs. Beat egg whites until stiff. In another bowl, whisk egg yolks and sweetener until light and fluffy. Add lemon juice and a few drops of yellow food coloring (optional). Carefully fold egg whites into yolk mixture.
  3. Whip cream in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Fold egg mixture into cream.
  4. Pour into ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.
  5. If you don't have an ice cream maker, you can place the bowl in the freezer and give it a good stir every half hour until it reaches the desired consistency. It can take up to 2 hours. Use a spatula to scrape the inside of the bowl while stirring. If frozen, let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before serving.

Tip!

Switch up your citrus! Limes and grapefruit make yummy ice cream flavors, too. If you try a grapefruit, use only one tablespoon of juice for every two servings of ice cream.

    Looks great and delicious! I have some concerns about raw eggs. I guess the freeze part kills any bacteria. Am I right?

    The acidity of the lemon kills the bacteria and makes it safe to eat.

    Erythritol is a granulated sweetener. You can buy it online if it’s not found in any local stores. It is less sweet than sugar so some people combine it with a bit of stevia. Erythritol also has a cooling “menthol” effect in the mouth which is alleviated by the stevia. If you re- read the recipe you will see where to add it into the egg yolks.

    If raw egg isn't a concern, then substituting Vanilla, an I like splenda for the sweetner ( doesn't denature with heat), and bake it in a water bath with a little nutmeg sprinkle on top for a great baked custard...could be in ramekins as well for individual servings.

    Can this be made without any sweetener?

    So pleased to know as Im having three round for dinner on Saturday and this will be just right with some grated 70% chocolate on top and some fresh raspberries. The other two courses are low carb and if I have eggs for a late breakfast and miss lunch, as I won't need it - a meal at 6.30pm with some white wine will be under 25 carbs, and they're not on any sort of diet - see food and eat it as we say in England! But tgey are from obese friends and well for people pushing 80! Thanks for posting.

    People never heard of PASTEURIZED EGGS? if you concern about raw eggs just buy pasteurized ones...
  13. Heather
    Sure I've heard of them but in my part of the world, they're not readily available and if they are, very expensive.

    When does the lemon zest go in? I see where the juice is added but never a mention of the zest
  15. Shayla
    What’s the serving in cups? I know you put the number of servings, but I live alone and I want to make sure I get the amount t exact and not end up eating too much.
