Lime Curd Ice Cream

Here is the delicious ice cream that we used to make our ice cream sandwiches.
Nancy shared the link for this recipe and since I had leftover lime curd, I decided this was going to be the way I used it up.

This ice cream is custard based- egg yolks and milk- and when you take it off the heat, you stir in the lemon/lime curd. The custard then chills overnight and the next day you whip cream to soft peaks, and stir it into the custard. Then, it is ready to churn!

The recipe has all the measurements in grams and ml- instead of being particular and using a kitchen scale- I just kinda estimated the amounts needed (not a great thing to do necessarily, but in this case it worked out fine for me).
I didn't even bother measuring my lime curd- I just used all that I had left, which was more than the estimated amount the recipe called for. I also did not strain out my lime zest.

The flavor was fantastic and the texture was perfect. This was really great ice cream.

Wow, you really knocked this one out of the park! I'm impressed that you made this without measuring/weighing. My scale has a storage spot, but it is in constant use so it pretty much stays on the counter! We loved the lime ice cream also, even though I used lime cream instead of lime curd.

Oh, man, does this sound good! I love citrus, and limes are my favorite. I've filed this recipe away and now I'm off to explore your lovely blog a little more...

I have made lemon curd ice cream before, but the lime curd sounds even better. I love the sweet and sour combo from the citrus.

I've never had lime curd but I made lemon curd for the first time recently and couldn't stop eating it! I will definitely have to give this a shot. I loved the lime cream we made for the recent TWD so I suspect I'd really enjoy it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE! I Saw a lemon curd version on Tracey's site, and I would make both of these and eat them right up! Gorgeous job!
