Lemon-Speculoos Ice Cream

It's almost summer time (it officially starts this Thursday) but it certainly feels like summer the past few days. To me, summer time is ice cream time and last summer we didn't churn much ice cream. I want to change that this year. Back in May we made Coffee Ice Cream, which is possibly my favorite homemade ice cream. Last week I wanted to try a new-to-us flavor so we flipped through The Perfect Scoop and agreed upon Lemon-Speculoos Ice Cream.
I was a little unsure about this flavor combination but SP was all for it because he loves lemon and he loves spice flavor. We made a lemon ice cream way back when we first started making ice cream and I didn't like it at all. I think it used buttermilk and I've discovered I am not a fan of ice creams with buttermilk, sour cream, etc. I also wasn't sure about the speculoos cookie because in the past, I have really liked some speculoos flavored treats and really not liked others.
The speculoos cookie was super easy to make. Lots of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and molasses flavor - yum!
I really like this ice cream. The lemon ice cream is full of lemon flavor without being too tart and it's nice and smooth and creamy. The cookie adds a nice bit of spice against the cool lemon. This one may not have made it to the top of my favorite ice cream flavor list, but it's definitely near the top.
