Japanese Yuzu Citrus Ice Cream

Yuzu is a cross between a sour mandarin orange and a lemon. (Some say it has a lemon-lime flavor.) Creamy and rich there is a sparkle of  lemon flavor in this ice cream.

  • 2 teaspoons gelatin powder
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 coconut milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup yuzu juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  1. Bloom the gelatin. (Sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Allow the gelatin to absorb the water for about 3 minutes.)
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, mix all the ingredients together. Stir well and make sure the gelatin and sugar are completely dissolved. Take off the heat and bring to room temperature. Refrigerate over night.

  3. Scoop the slightly gelled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
