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!
I don't know how you got it, but I'm so glad to have stumbled upon this recipe!!! It tastes like the Blue Moon I used to eat in the summer as a kid growing up in Erie, Pa. The scret is, I think, in the vanilla pudding. Turned out perfect! Though, I did follow another reviewer's suggestion and used 1 cup milk and omitted the half-n-half (didn't have any on hand). Superb! Loved it!!! Thank you sooooo much.
I was so pleased on how this recipe turned out. My daughter flipped out when I surprised her with it. Blue Moon is her FAVORITE ice cream and she said it tasted perfect. I ended up using 1 cup whole milk and 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, not using any half and half. Also I used 1 tsp. raspberry extract and 1 tsp. lemon extract. It took 30 minutes to make in my ice cream maker. Thanks so much for posting. We will be making this MANY MANY more times.
This is the best blue moon recipe I have found and made. My family loves it! It's taste is right on! Soo delicious!!
