Lemon Thyme Ices

Submitted by: LHLADY517

Introduction

This pretty dessert makes a lovely ending to any meal. Reminiscent of an Italian lemon ice, it is updated here with a hint of fresh thyme. If you prefer a less-tart version, add a little more sugar substitute. This pretty dessert makes a lovely ending to any meal.

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3 leafy fresh thyme sprigs plus 4 extra sprigs for garnish
    1/2 cup granulated sugar substitute
    2 cups boiling water
    1 cup fresh lemon juice (from 5 to 6 lemons)
    1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
    Salt

Directions

1. In a medium metal bowl, combine thyme and sugar substitute. Pour boiling water over them and stir to dissolve sugar substitute. Steep for 3 minutes, then remove and discard thyme.
2. Place bowl in freezer until mixture is cool, about 10 minutes. Remove from freezer and whisk in lemon juice, zest, and a pinch of salt. Pour into 2 standard ice cube trays, filling each ice cube compartment to just below the top (you will fill 1 tray and 1/2 of a second one).
3. Freeze until mostly frozen through, 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Place cubes in a food processor or blender and pulse very briefly, just until ice becomes granular. (Don't overprocess or the dessert will be a liquid.)
4. Transfer ice to dessert bowls, garnish with tops of extra thyme sprigs, and serve immediately
