Caviar lime ice cream is a burst of refreshing lime and creamy goodness. Top a scoop with our caviar limes for the ultimate citrus ice cream.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- ⅓ cup lime juice
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons lime zest
- Pearls of 2 caviar limes
- Cutting board
- Measuring cups
- Measuring spoons
- Metal 9 x 5 bread pan
Prepare the whipped cream:
- In a standing mixer, beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form (about 2-3 minutes on high speed). The whipped cream should be able to stand on its own when you lift the whisk out of the mixer.
Prepare the lime juice and milk:
- Mix the sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and salt together.
Fold together and prepare to freeze:
- Using a spatula, gradually fold the milk and lime juice into the whipped cream to add air as you mix the two together.
- Spread the mixture into a metal 9x5 bread pan, cover and freeze for 2 hours. Using a metal container will help the ice cream freeze faster but glass works as well. If you don’t have a bread pan, a casserole dish works as well.
- After 2 hours, the ice cream will have a soft-serve texture, so this is a good time to add in the caviar lime flesh and zest. Gently mix it into the ice cream with a spatula and continue freezing for an additional 4 hours.
Freeze and serve:
- Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for 5 minutes before serving.
- Run an ice cream scoop in warm water before scooping.
Top your scoops of ice cream with extra caviar lime flesh and zest. The burst of citrus from the caviar limes is perfect for any citrus fan!
For a key lime twist, add in white chocolate chips and graham crackers around the 2-hour mark. And for those who love a good mint and citrus combo, make sure to top your ice cream with fresh mint leaves.
