This is an awesome recipe - the first time I made it, I had raspberry extract and it was absolutely perfect. This time, I used raspberries instead. The lemon flavor is slightly overwhelming. Next time I might lessen the amount of lemon extract (1/2 tsp) if using fresh raspberries.
I never really had Blue Moon, but my daughter's favorite always was that. So, when I found this recipe, I tried it to bring her back to her childhood. She loves it! She said I nailed it. Easy and I followed the recipe exactly.
YESSSS!!!! You have made me a happy, HAPPY person with this recipe! I grew up in Wisconsin eating this ice cream and it is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE ice cream! Unfortunately, where I live now, you cannot find it anywhere...they've never even heard of it; so I had to wait until I made the trip back home to get my "Blue Moon Fix!" LOL!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!
