Coconut Ice Cream Recipe: Lemon Curd Ice Cream with Ginger Crumble

Lemon curd ice cream with ginger crumble

This fresh-tasting ice cream is swirled with a zesty zing of lemon curd, which means it’s light, fragrant and refreshing. It’s churned so that it has that super-smooth texture. With each spoonful, you could picture yourself on a long, lazy holiday in Italy. Buonissimo.
