  • 250 mililiters lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 250 grams sugar
  • 250 mililiters whipping cream or non-dairy whipped topping

  2. Cool sugar syrup in refrigerator until cold, 3-5 hours.
  3. Partially whip the cream until volume increases slightly.
  4. Drizzle sugar syrup into cream until completely incorporated.
  5. Freezer method: Place in airtight container in the freezer. Shake or stir every fifteen minutes for the first hour. Freeze until thickened.
  6. Ice Cream Maker Method: Pour into ice cream maker. Follow directions for gelato, or stir until soft-serve consistency, then chill one hour.
