* Makes about 1 1/4 pints
- 1 recipe light gelato
- 2 unwaxed lemons
Prepare the basic light gelato and then blend in the finely grated zest of the lemons and at least 1/2 cup lemon juice.
Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions, or use the hand-mixing method. Stop churning when it is almost firm, transfer to a freezer container, and leave in the freezer for 15 minutes before serving, or until required.
This gelato is best eaten fresh, but it can be frozen for up to 1 month. Take out of the freezer 15 minutes before serving to soften slightly.
