1 quart


  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1 cup milk

  • ¾ cup white sugar, divided

  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 5 egg yolks

  • 1 teaspoon grated lime zest


  1. Combine cream, milk, 1/2 of the sugar, sriracha sauce, and salt in a large saucepan. Heat over medium heat until almost boiling, whisking occasionally. Do not boil or the cream will separate.

  2. Whisk egg yolks, remaining sugar, and lime zest in a separate mixing bowl. Pour 1/3 of the hot cream mixture into the egg yolk mixture; whisk to combine. Repeat this step 2 more times until the cream mixture is fully incorporated into the egg yolk mixture.

  3. Pour the entire mixture back into the saucepan and heat for 2 minutes, whisking constantly. Do not boil. Transfer to a clean bowl with a lid and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, 4 hours to overnight.

  4. Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately as soft-serve or transfer to an freezer-safe container and freeze until scoopable, at least 2 hours.

Cook's Note:

For a fun topping, cut an egg roll wrapper into thin strips and place the strips on a baking sheet. Lightly spray the strips with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 6 minutes at 400 degrees F (200 degrees C), flipping the strips halfway through.
