Lemon Ice Cream Cake

I was tickled yellow the other day when I went to Kroger and saw their new Simple Truth Low Cow Lemon Cake ice cream. First the big numbers on the package caught my eye, 240 calories. Second I saw 24 grams of protein per pint. Whoa! Next I saw the “Free From” sticker. Low Cow is non-GMO, no gluten and absolutely no artificial ingredients or preservatives. With this in mind, I promptly put four pints in my cart in order to make a Lemon Ice Cream Cake.

After I got home, I could not wait to try it. Fingers were crossed that it would be rich and creamy with no strange aftertaste. I plunged a spoon into the lemon ice cream and pulled out a big spoonful. The very first thing I noticed was that I could smell lemons. That is a very good start. Next I tasted it. Lemon flavor immediately exploded in my mouth. Oh yum! After that I noticed that Low Cow Lite Ice Cream, did in fact taste like rich and creamy ice cream. Life is good.

Suddenly I could not wait to go back to Kroger to try the other five ingredients. Which should it be? Chocolate, Vanilla Bean, Sea Salt Caramel, Mint Chocolate Chip or Birthday Cake? While I work on that decision, I whipped up this Lemon Ice Cream Cake. This ice cream cake feels like a mix between an ice box cake and a regular ice cream cake. It is made with graham crackers and a homemade whipped cream topping. Low Cow Lemon Cake Ice Cream fills the layers between the graham crackers. Lemon ice cream cake is extremely easy to make.

In fact it was so easy, my little helped me again. You can see her helping in the video below. She is becoming quite a good little cook and fantastic helper. Of course, she really enjoyed taste testing this recipe for me. Lemon Ice Cream Cake got a big thumbs up from her. Moreover, I think she licked her plate. Luckily, I don’t have to feel guilty with her enjoying a slice of this ice cream cake because of better ingredients it is made from. In addition, Low Cow is less expensive than other competitors brands. That is a win-win for me.
