If you happen to have some lemon curd on hand, this ice cream will require only three ingredients. If you don't - you can either devote an extra bag of some precious minutes to make it, or you can substitute it with anything else that, to your mind, might suit in here. And, actually, the assortment is quite wide: from the generous amount of chocolate fudge, tacky caramel, marshmallow sauce or creamy peanut butter swirl to a little bit healthier side, occupied with mashed fruits and delicious jams.
But I still have to warn you: unfortunately, this ice cream treat is definitely not for those who are sitting on a pile of diet books with only one leaf of lettuce in front of them. But rather for the brave ones. Those who are the real flavor lovers, gutsy and unconditionally loving sinfully creamy ice cream. Maybe even for those who are constantly counting their calorie intake, but at the same time never saying no to a little bit bigger than just a tiny bite of this kind of incredible indulgence.
