Lemon Curd Frozen Yogurt

it is no secret that i love lemon. i love lemon in my desserts, lemon in my cocktails, lemon sauce, and lemon in my salads. so it may go without saying that i love homemade lemon curd.

if you love the tart, fresh taste of lemon, you too will love this frozen yogurt. it's refreshing, creamy, sweet and tart. i think it's the perfect refreshing summer dessert.

Lemon Curd Frozen Yogurt

1 whole egg
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup sugar
zest of 2 lemons
1/2 cup lemon juice
4 tbs butter, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups plain 2% greek yogurt
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt

whisk together eggs and sugar in a medium sauce pan. whisk in zest and juice and place over medium heat. whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens (it should coat the back of a wooden spoon) - roughly 7-10 minutes.

remove from heat a whisk in butter, one cube at a time until completely melted. push mixture through a fine mesh strainer and cover with plastic wrap touching curd. refrigerate at least one hour.

whisk together chilled lemon curd with plain yogurt and vanilla yogurt and pour into ice cream maker. follow your ice cream makers directions (i let it churn for 20 minutes and then spoon it into a tupperware container and let it freeze for an hour or so).

serve cold and enjoy!
