Homemade Fresh Lemon or Peach Ice Cream

As summer comes to a close in Montana we enjoyed some homemade ice cream.

Forager has organic dairy-free half & half!   I modified a recipe by Sunkist:

2C Forager Half & Half.  For dairy version use heavy cream or whipping cream

1C sugar

Grated peel of 1 lemon

1/3C freshly squeezed lemon juice.  For peach (6) fresh peaches in food processor w/ half & half

Lemon Burst Cookie or waffles (optional)

 

This easy-to-make lemon, or peach, ice cream doesn’t require a machine.

Combine half & half with sugar; stir, medium heat, on stove to dissolve sugar.  Blend in lemon juice & zest (for peach version, I left the peach skin on).  Pour into shallow pan & freeze until firm, about 4 hours.  Serve with Lemon Burst Cookies.  Garnish with fresh mint leaves.  Makes 6-9 servings (about 3 cups).

Running Diary – 9/1/2019

Leslie Lake from Elkhorn, MT

GREAT trail run and even better fishing!  10 miles, decent elevation gain >3000’

Collected sage, juniper, & purple daisies for new smudge sticks.

Went around lake and entered in from the top; more difficult side for quad.  A lot of water is coming in from top, trail is beautiful, mossy, and wet.

Racing downhill to (music) GREASE – You Better Shape Up –  uneven, large rocks, used the heck out of my poles – so fun!!

Form improvement – lead with my heart, pull with hamstrings, head up.

Fly Fishing hubby – fish look at flies before they bite; they take a swim by – Matt loves.

Hot sun on my back and legs, cool breeze circling my knees

Great food and coffee at the lake (love my Jet boil & Mushroom Coffee mix by Four Sigmatic) #foursigmatic

Can-Am Quad fan – challenging ride –

A bright purple quad wrecked up the trail.  She had flipped a few times before we got there.   Matt helped her with our Can-Am’s winch.  She has a shoulder strain.  She “lost her breaks at creek prior to difficult area.” #CanAm

Recovery – have perfected yoga flow for this runner.  #yogaforrunners #artfulblogging
