Chocolate Chip Lime ice Cream in bowl with limes and sweets

Chocolate Chip Lime Ice Cream

Janice Pattie
Chocolate Chip Lime Ice Cream is very creamy but the sharp lime flavour from the Lime Curd cuts through the richness and the little nuggets of dark chocolate really do make it taste like those Chocolate Lime sweets.

To serve from the freezer

  • Remove the container from the freezer for 10 minutes before serving. Homemade ice cream is best if you let it thaw a little before serving.

Notes

Because of the high sugar and fat content in the curd, the ice cream doesn’t go rock hard, nor does it form ice crystals so you can make it successfully without an ice cream maker.
