Organic Fresh Lemon Ice Recipe

This is a recipe for homemade organic lemon ice that my friend is perfecting to try to wean her family off Haagan Daz ice cream. Homemade versions of ices contain natural vitamin C which is an essential vitamin necessary for wound healing and detoxification without the "natural flavors" and dye that store bought ices often contain. The lemon ice was made in a Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker which you can purchase a stainless steel freezer bowl.


5 organic lemons-medium size
1 Tablespoon organic lemon rind-zested
2 ½ cups water
¾ cup organic white sugar
½ cup organic agave

  • Freeze ice cream maker bowl in the freezer for a minimum of 12hrs – make sure your freezer setting is set low.
  • Squeeze the juice from the 5 lemons into a bowl. Zest 1 tablespoon of the lemon rind (wash the lemons you are zesting)
  • In a small pot add the water and sugar mixture, stirring on high until the sugar has melted. Let cool.
  • Add Lemons with rind, sugar water and agave into a blender. Blend on high until well blended. Put mixture into the fridge to cool.
  • When ready to make the ice, place mixture in frozen maker bowl and turn on for 30 minutes.
