Yum - made and then when all cool poured in a ziplock bag to freeze - just "beat" up the bag rather than scraping and remixing - worked great!

This recipe is delicious and so easy to make. The only thing I would change is to use less lemon juice next time. It was too tart for me. Otherwise, extremely yummy and refreshing on a hot day.

I did not have any lemons and used a cup of lemon juice instead. I did use the extract. The lemon ices are SO good. I have made them twice now because my family requested more. i also stored what couldnt be eaten in empty yogart containers. They stored well. Thanks for a great recipe.

Very good stuff. Way strong. It will eat the enamel off your teeth and give you a tummy ache with all the acid in it if you eat very much. To please the wife and to make it more tummy compatible will use less lemons next time. It's so good it's hard to stop eating it. I added some (1/4 tbsp) xanthan gum to help reduce the ice crystals. Did not add enough. Next time will add more.<br/>Thanks

For some unknown reason, maybe it was denial, I thought sorbet was low fat!!!! This is one of the greatest and most refreshing summer tongue pleasers ever. Easy to make, great to eat, and great for the waistline without feeling gypt of flavor.

Thanks for posting this recipe, Bev! My whole family (especially my milk allergic son) enjoyed this Italian Ice recipe! I wasn't sure about adding the lemon extract but I did and it was delicious and refreshing! This is a definite keeper!!!

I love Lemon Ices and found this recipe to be a perfectly simple way to prepare them. It did take a bit longer to freeze in its position at the top of my chest freezer, but I believe that the recipe would be spot on for an upright or above-fridge freezer. This is an excellent sweet, but tart treat.

I just love Italian ice, and this is delicious! I was given about 8 lemons. It took 6 to make this, just like the recipe says. Directions were good, only thing I did different was not to use the lemon extract. It still tasted great! Thanks Bev! :)
