As we are having such a lovely summer this year, I thought it was time to add another summer inspired dessert to my culinary repertoire 😊
This gorgeous grown-up ice lolly is based on an American ‘creamsicle’ a sublime mixture including fresh cream and Limoncello – yummy yum!
The ingredients are indulgent, however I do believe in ‘a little of what you fancy’ – these lollies are a modest size, so not too much damage there.
Your lollies need at least 10 hours to set, so are a perfect dessert to make ahead if you are planning on entertaining (I have a very good friend who loves Limoncello – so I will be taking some of these over on ice, when we next get a BBQ invite!) This recipe will make 6 ice lollies.
Limoncello Ice Lollies
- 500 ml double cream
- 125g sugar
- pinch sea salt
- 125g Limoncello
- zest of 2 unwaxed lemons
- 60 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
Put cream, sugar and salt into a medium pan and slowly bring to the boil, whisking from time to time. Simmer over a medium heat for 5 minutes.
Remove from heat & cool for 10 minutes.
Stir in Limoncello, lemon zest and juice.
Pour into lolly moulds & freeze for at least 10 hours (don’t be tempted to take out early – your lolly is likely to collapse!)
