Woman's Weekly recipe This melt-in-the-mouth dessert is great for summer parties: the lemony taste gives it a real kick


  • 125g (4oz) caster sugar
  • Juice of 2 lemons (6-7tbsp)
  • 500g (18oz) tub thick Greek yogurt
  • 150ml ( pint) double cream
  • 1 heaped tsp good-quality lemon curd per person, to serve
  • 1 meringue shell per person, to serve

If you prefer, you can add broken meringue to the ice-cream mixture - 45g is enough. Serve in scoops and drizzle with lemon curd.


  1. Whisk the sugar and lemon juice in a large bowl until the sugar dissolves. Add the yogurt and cream. Spoon into a plastic container. Freeze for a few hours until slushy. Mix well and freeze, then mix again and freeze.
  2. To make up, spoon the ice-cream mixture into a metal cooking ring or cutter (about 6.5cm/2 in in diameter) on a piece of greaseproof paper to make a round about 2.5cm (1in) high. Shape as many as you need, putting them on a tray and returning them to the freezer quickly to firm up. This can be done the day before serving.
  3. To serve, place each ice-cream round on a chilled plate. Spoon lemon curd over, then place a meringue on top and serve.
