Lemon SemiFreddo with Blueberries

SemiFreddo: a partially frozen Italian dessert similar to ice cream. SemiFreddo was one of those desserts that I always wanted to try but just never got around to making.  I could just kick myself in the butt for waiting so long!  This was dessert for a family dinner at our house.  Oh my….the cool creaminess, the perfect lemon flavor accompanied by a splash of blueberry…it was luscious.  It’s a flavor combination that makes you sit there and want it to keep going on and on, savoring every bite. It’s like eating the best ice cream you’ve ever had in your entire life.  A fantastic cool, light, creamy ending to any dinner.  This is one amazing dessert and we’re going to make it together. Let’s gather the ingredients.

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon regular lemon peel
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups Blueberries, fresh or frozen (if frozen thaw)  crushed slightly to give off it’s juice.

Combine the sugar, egg yolks, lemon juice, lemon peel and salt in a large METAL bowl and whisk the ingredients together until combined. Place the metal bowl over a large pot of simmering water and whisk ( don’t just stir with the whisk, you need to whisk it).  Whisk until your mixture looks fluffy and thick and an instant read thermometer reads 170 degrees, this will probably take about 5 minutes or so. Once your mixture is fluffy and thick remove the bowl from over the pot of simmering water.  Place the mixture in a large bowl.  With an electric mixer beat until it is double in volume and has cooled down.

Serve Lemon SemiFreddo with the fresh berry of your choice. I chose blueberries, I absolutely love the flavors of blueberry and lemon together but you can use any berry or fruit ( cut into small pieces)you like.  Lemon SemiFreddo would obviously be a fantastic Summer time treat but don’t limit this fantastic dessert to one season. It would also be a delicious dessert to serve after big Winter holiday meals like Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This amazing treat is kept in the freezer until your ready to serve it which makes it the perfect “make ahead dessert” for any holiday.  It would be a welcome light and elegant treat to serve anytime of the year.  Lemon SemiFreddo with Blueberries, it’s what’s for dessert and it’s luscious.
