Rich, creamy and cool, with a fresh lemon flavor, this dessert is the perfect no-cook dessert for summer. From start to finish, the recipe takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and uses only 3 ingredients. Chill for 1 hour and serve!


  • 6 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 ounces fresh lemon juice
  • 2 to 3 (6-ounce) containers plain yogurt

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Set yogurt out on the counter for 10 minutes to bring it to room temperature.

  3. Pour the condensed milk into a large bowl or blender. Add fresh lemon juice to the condensed milk and blend thoroughly using a stick blender or standard blender.

  4. Add 6 ounces of yogurt to the milk-lemon juice mixture and blend well.

  5. Add another 6 ounces of yogurt and continue to blend. The mixture will be thick and creamy. To make a thinner cream, add another 6 ounces yogurt.

  6. Cover the lemon cream tightly and chill for at least 1 hour. When ready to serve, spoon into four individual bowls.
