This Key Lime Pie ice cream is amazing. I was a bit skeptical about a simple ice cream recipe, but it turned out better than I expected! It has great flavor with just a couple of limes and a lemon. Best of all, it’s not a fussy recipe. Just a few ingredients and you can make it in your mixer. No need for an ice cream maker, salt or ice!

The ice cream freezes very firm. I recommend letting it sit out a few minutes before serving so it can soften slightly, making it easier to serve. It’s creamier
